Tadros Adhanom Ghebreyesus (b. March 3, 1965) was elected director-general of the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2017 with the support of the Chinese Communist Party and was WHO head at the time of the outbreak of the CCP global pandemic. Adhanom formerly was a leader in Ethiopia's Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF), a wing of the ruling Marxist Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front. Adhanom served the repressive regime as Minister of Foreign Affairs from 2012 to 2016 after a stint as Health Minister. Tadros Adhanom was bought off by the Chinese Communist Party to aid in its cover-up and mislead the world about the transmissibility of the coronavirus.
Tadros is the first African and non-medical doctor to head the WHO. Tadros Adhanom holds a PhD in community organizing. In the Ethiopian tradition, he likes to be called by his first name, Tadros, sometimes spelled Tedros. Prior to becoming Director-General of the World Health Organization, Tadros held the 3rd highest rank in the Politburo of the Ethiopian Marxist-Leninist ruling party.
The World Health Organization reported in 2016 that at least 8.6 million people in Ethiopia still needed food aid to survive, and that the situation had not improved at all under Tedros' administration. When Tedros left the Ethiopian regime to become WHO director-general, 8% of the population of Ethiopia were still dependent on foreign aid to avoid starvation.
TPLF terrorist organization
The Tigray ethnic minority represent only 6% of the population of Ethiopia. Tadros, who hails from the Tigray, was a high ranking member of the Central Committee. The TPLF was listed as a terrorist organisation by the U.S. State Department in the 1990s, and is still listed as one by the Global Terror Database.
Humans Rights Watch wrote a report in 2010 on how aid in the form of food and fertilizer was withheld from local Amhara villagers because of their affiliations with the opposition party. Other forms of aid denial involved the refusal of emergency healthcare by ministry of health which, at the time, was led by one Tedros Adhanom. The Amhara People’s Union, an activist group based in Washington, D.C., issued many other accusations of human rights abuses against the TPLF led government. They noted at a session in Ethiopian parliament that around 2 million Amhara were found to have “disappeared” from the population census.
Cholera epidemic coverup
A cholera outbreak spread the region in 2007, infecting thousands in neighbouring countries. When it spread to Ethiopia, the government simply renamed the outbreak and called it Acute Watery Diarrhoea (AWD). International organisations were pressured not to call it Cholera (despite the UN testing the infected and finding Cholera), and were pressured by government employees not to reveal the number of infected.
Andargachew Tsege, a UK citizen of Ethiopian origin was top on the list of dissidents that the regime wanted back. Tsege, who was one of the key figures during the 2005 popular movement for change and democracy in Ethiopia, already received two death sentences in absentia in 2009 and 2012. As head of a delegation to Sana, Tedros led the negotiations with Yemen to have dissidents that enter Yemen kidnapped and handed over to them kidnapped and handed back. Ethiopian migrants and domestic workers in Yemen were already routinely beaten, raped, abused and deported back to Ethiopia. Neither government raised concerns.
Tsege’s kidnapping caused widespread outrage among Ethiopian activists and those struggling to free their country from the tyrannical regime. In his book A liberators unaware of freedom, which Tsege published 1997, he rejected TPLF’s divide and rule policy among Ethiopia's diverse ethnic groups and tried to show the dangers of the TPLF's fascistic and Stalinist ideology. Tsege warned that the TPLF, armed with its ethnofascist ideology, poses a danger to Ethiopia as a nation and individuals as citizens.
On October 2, 2016, troops loyal to the Tigrean Peoples’ Liberation Front (TPLF) opened fire indiscriminately on crowds attending one of the most important cultural and spiritual events in Ethiopia, the Irreecha (Thanksgiving) Festival in the town of Bishoftu, some 45 miles southeast of the capital Addis Ababa. An estimated 500 plus people were killed and twice that number severely injured during the event.
With the help of Mercury Public Affairs, a high-end U.S.-based lobbying firm that calls itself a “high-stakes public strategy firm”, Tadros attempted to obscure his past.
As a candidate for the WHO top post, The New York Times accused Adhanom of covering up at least three epidemics. One of Adhanom's first actions as director-general was to name the repressive Marxist-Leninist dictator Robert Mugabe, who in the 1980s ordered the killing of 20,000 people in Zimbabwe, as a WHO Goodwill Ambassador. Peter Humphrey, a British investigator who was jailed in China in 2013 had been drugged, chained to a chair, locked in a cage and made to read out a statement written by the police in front of cameras. The anchor who presented the footage, James Chao, was appointed a Goodwill Ambassador with the World Health Organization.
Tadros of Ethiopia was elected with the help of the CCP; Ethiopia is a CCP client state.
CCP global pandemic
Tad Adhanom criticized travel bans to and from China saying, "There is no reason for measures that unnecessarily interfere with international travel and trade," and praised the CCP's response: "We appreciate the seriousness with which China is taking this outbreak, especially the commitment from top leadership and the transparency they have demonstrated," and "China is actually setting a new standard for outbreak response." Film clips of Adhanom are shown on Chinese television saying, "China took action massively at the epicenter at the source of the outbreak. This is heroic. The actions of China is making us safer."
The WHO did not enter China until February 10, 2020, more than two months after the virus was first discovered. A WHO report written on February 28, 2020 stated that 80% of infections ("mild cases") can self-isolate, 13% require hospitalization, and 6% require intensive care. The WHO said the coronavirus infection rate (as opposed to death rate) was thought to be the same as the flu when the virus was only known in China but has since been found to be two to three times that infectious.
The World Health Organization is horribly corrupt. An audit revealed there has been a surge in internal corruption allegations across the whole of the organization with the detection of multiple schemes aimed at defrauding large sums of money from the international body, overwhelming an internal team of full-time investigators. An Associated Press expose in 2017 found that nearly half of the WHO two billion dollar budget went to first-class airfare and five-star hotels. The United States is the largest contributor US taxpayers fund about a quarter of the WHO budget. The WHO worked with Google to ensure that people get information from the UN health agency first when they search for information about the CCP virus.
After saying the goal of a political party is to save itself, Tadros threatened the United States with more body bags if WHO funding were cut.
