Online life critique caught in a news distribution here cases that Ghana’s leader, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has submitted Ghana to an immunization settlement to get COVID-19 antibodies supported by very rich person Bill Gates for use by Ghanaians.
The distribution, which highlights online life remarks, additionally guarantees that Nana Akufo-Addo has submitted Ghana to an obligatory immunization program.
A portion of the remarks incorporate those common here and here.
Fact checkGhana.com investigated these cases and saw it as totally bogus.
Clarification: There is yet to be an antibody against COVID-19 on the planet in spite of the fact that the World Health Organization (WHO) has recognized various potential immunizations.
Ghana, as different nations of the world influenced by COVID-19, is supporting different activities outfitted towards finding a sheltered and successful antibody.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which is a significant funder of the World Health Organization (WHO) has been a casualty of deception and paranoid notions, for example, the establishment intending to utilize a future COVID-19 immunization to embed microchips in billions of individuals and to drain Africa.
These schemes have, in addition to other things, been fuelled by Microsoft originator Bill Gates’ push for a COVID-19 immunization.
The case that President Akufo-Addo has submitted Ghana to a Bill Gates antibody agreement to get a COVID-19 immunization for necessary inoculation of residents depends on a tweet by the president, through his twitter handle, @NAkufoAddo on May 15, 2020.
“Along with other worldwide pioneers, I marked the @UNAIDS Public Letter on a People’s Vaccine for # COVID19. It is significant that all individuals wherever should approach the antibody when one opens up. It must be the #PeoplesVaccine,” the tweet read.
To check the case, we visited the UNAIDS official site to get insights regarding the said letter [described as an agreement by the claimants] and see whether it was in any capacity associated with Bill Gates and was related with a mandatory inoculation program.
A blog entry on the UNAIDS site, demonstrated that the individuals’ immunization against COVID-19 is just an open letter marked by more than 140 world pioneers including present and previous president and specialists. The agreement requests all legislatures of the world to guarantee that at whatever point any compelling immunization or treatment for COVID-19 is created, it ought to be sans patent, mass-delivered, dispersed reasonably and made accessible to all individuals, in all nations, for nothing out of pocket.
The Executive Director for UNAIDS, Winnie Byanyima, clarified in a video that “pestilences influence everybody except they don’t influence everybody similarly. To battle COVID we need to battle disparity since pandemics feed on and broaden imbalances… Together, we need all pioneers to ensure that when a sheltered and viable antibody is created, it is delivered quickly at scale and made accessible for all individuals in all nations for nothing out of pocket. The equivalent applies for all medicines, tests and different advancements. Nobody ought to be sent to the rear of the COVID line due to the shade of their skin or the cash in their pockets.”
She further supported the requires a people’s immunization, refering to the case of African nations unfit to purchase COVID-19 test units and PPEs from the open markets since rich nations get them in gigantic amounts and loading up for themselves.
There are as of now more than 100 up-and-comer immunizations under different phases of advancement. As indicated by the WHO, 10 are presently in clinical assessment stage while 115 are in the preclinical assessment stage.
Bill Gates in an April 2, 2020 meeting on Trevor Noah’s The Daily Show said the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation would later store production lines of seven COVID-19 immunization applicants, notwithstanding, the People’s Vaccine letter doesn’t make explicit reference to any antibody and in this manner it can’t be said that Ghana has pursued a Bill Gates COVID-19 antibody.
Once more, to the degree that the People’s Vaccine letter doesn’t put residents of any of the nations whose presidents have marked, similar to Ghana, under any consent to be obligatorily isolated, the case recommending so is bogus.
There is as of now no law in Ghana that licenses mandatory immunization of residents against COVID-19.
