ANNOUNCEMENT

UPDATE: July 13, 2020  

Global health experts said [President Trump's] choice to leave the global health governing body during a pandemic is a dangerous call. "This decision is . . . ill-advised, and all it does is put American lives at risk," said Dr. Howard Koh, former assistant secretary  for health . . . "I disagree with the president's decision," said Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., Chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions committee..."Withdrawing U.S. membership could, among other things, interfere with clinical trials that are essential to the development of vaccines, which citizens of the United States as well as others in the world need. . ."   Dr. Tom Frieden, former head of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, noted: "The United States helped create the World Health Organization. And we're turning our back on it — we're turning our back on the world. That makes us less safe, it makes the world less safe . . . "

Opening remarks of the Secretary-General's appeal for global ceasefire - 23 March 2020

. . . This is crucial . . . 

To help create corridors for life-saving aid. To open precious windows for diplomacy.  To bring hope to places among the most vulnerable to COVID-19.  

 

Let us take inspiration from coalitions and dialogue slowly taking shape among rival parties in some parts to enable joint approaches to COVID-19.  But we need much more. 

End the sickness of war and fight the disease that is ravaging our world. 

It starts by stopping the fighting everywhere. Now. 

That is what our human family needs, now more than ever.

UN donates 250,000 face masks to NYC health workers

29 March 2020

On behalf of the city, the Mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, was on hand to receive 250,000 face masks donated by

the UN on Saturday, destined for health workers in the metropolis that is home to the

Organization’s Headquarters

In a statement, Mr. Guterres said that the face masks stored in United Nations facilities, were part of UN stocks, deemed surplus to requirements.  The UN chief praised medical professionals in New York City who, he said, have been working “courageously, selflessly, and tirelessly in response to the spread of COVID-19 across the boroughs,” in a reference to the five boroughs into which the City is administratively divided (Manhattan, Queens, The Bronx, Brooklyn and Staten Island).

Crucial Questions? . . .

Should any U.S. Citizen be lawlessly "shot and killed"

for asking a customer to wear a mask before

entering a business establishment?

Family & Friends mourn the tragic loss of 

Calvin Munerlyn

shot on May 1, 2020 at a store in Flint, Michigan - USA

 . . . and; is this "social distancing?"

 Crowds gathered at National Mall to watch Blue Angels, Thunderbirds flyover - May 2, 2020

 Answer to both Questions . . . "NO!"

 If "Law Enforcement" is willing to be masked

  in an effort to save thousands - even 

  millions of lives during this

 dangerous pandemic . . .

should "We the People" do the same by

following safer, prudent, public examples?!

During a press  conference  on  Monday, May 4, UM-Flint Public Safety Director, Ray Hall stands with a mask detailing the shooting which resulted in the death of Calvin Munerlyn.

HIS MAJESTY KING ABDULLAH II:  NO TIME FOR GEOPOLITICAL TURF BATTLES

HIS MAJESTY KING ABDULLAH II OF THE HASH

31 March  2020

The following text excerpt is  an Op-ed by His Majesty King Abdullah II, and presidents Frank-Walter Steinmeier of Germany, Halimah Yacob of Singapore, Sahle-Work Zewde of Ethiopia and Lenín Moreno Garcés of Ecuador

"No time for geopolitical turf battles.  We need a global alliance to fight the pandemic . . . Our nations, societies and economies are slowing down, almost grinding to a halt in the face of a global, external threat that transcends borders, ethnicities, and creeds. Public life has come to a virtual standstill. But these unprecedented measures of social distancing will be hard to sustain over a long period of time. 

 

Nations are turning inward as they try to cope with the coronavirus pandemic, closing borders and imposing drastic executive measures in a retreat that risks leaving every country fending for itself. However, we can contain and counter COVID-19 more effectively by knocking down the barriers that hinder knowledge exchange and co-operation. 

Crises like these tend to bring out both the best and the worst in people. It is our responsibility as leaders to encourage the former and contain the latter. Our countries are at varying stages of the crisis but we all see and admire the strong spirit of solidarity and the many people who are passionately trying to save lives or keep indispensable services up and running. They give us hope and offer inspiration that our societies may not only weather this crisis but also grow stronger and more connected."

" . . . There is each of all of us, South Africans . . . and the residents of our country who are standing together as one in confronting this National health emergency.  Amongst us are the men and women who rise at dawn every day and labour through the night to keep this country going. 

 

I speak of the farm worker who is helping to keep us supplied with food.  I speak of the technician in the power station working shift after shift to keep the lights on.  I speak of the caregiver in the old-age home; the childcare home and the hospice who comes in every day to tend to the most vulnerable of our citizens. 

 

I speak about the taxi driver, the refuse collector, the bus driver, the supermarket cashier, the hospital cleaner, the petrol attendant and all those essential workers."
