We live in a corrupted system. The way to tackle corruption is to first acknowledge it exists. Only then is it possible to come up with ways of dealing with it, but don't make the mistake of believing the system can or will uncorrupt itself.

WHO is Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus?

A good question. The BBC wrote an interesting article about him in May 2020 with a few interesting, if understated details.

Along with the usual BBC apologist drivel for things like Ghebreyesus proposing Robert Mugabe of all people as a “WHO goodwill ambassador”, passed off as a mistake because “his political skills may not be quite so sharp”, or the merest word of caution about his “effusive praise for China” from a colleague concerned that it could “tarnish the WHO’s reputation as a trusted scientific authority” it does mention that he was a member of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front, and this:

“But when he was in charge, his ministry was known to discourage journalists from reporting about suspected cholera cases in the country.”


An interesting admission regarding the guy running the show at the World Health Organisation.
