Global Health Official Admits Lockdowns Were Political: ‘Not Backed by Science’

A global health official has gone on record to admit that Covid pandemic lockdowns and related measures were political and “not backed by science.”

During the pandemic, varying degrees of lockdown measures around the world ruined the lives of millions of people, particularly the most vulnerable.

Schools and businesses were shut down and, in the worst cases, people were forced to stay inside their homes for weeks on end.

Now the health officials behind the “science” of lockdowns are admitting they issued their decrees solely on the basis of politics.

In October, the World Health Summit held a three-day conference with the World Health Organization (WHO).

The event was attended by global health leaders from nations around the world and included approximately 300 speakers and 3,000 participants.

Attendees gathered to discuss the world’s COVID-19 response and how to approach future pandemics.

Rebel News reporter Alexandra Lavoie went undercover to attend the conference and released secretly-filmed footage on Thursday.

Lavoie spoke with Razak Gyesi Issahaku, a member of the German-West Africa Center for Pandemic Prevention (G-WAC).

She pressed Issahaku on the decisions by world governments related to the pandemic.

During the conversation, Issahaku repeatedly admits that science was not a fact in the decision-making.

“In the heat of the pandemic, most of the decisions were not based on science, like I said,” Issahaku said.

“They were just reactionary. Anything that would help,” he adds.

“Now, with the benefit of hindsight, we can tell that some of those decisions is not backed by science.”

Issahaku then admits that governments knew the vaccines do not stop Covid from spreading.

Last year, Pfizer claimed their vaccine reduced the spread of the virus by 90%.

“The vaccines do not stop the spread of the disease. But now we know,” he said.

“At first, nobody knew so it was political,” he adds.

Issahaku went on to reveal that no scientific basis existed when the WHO was pushing for travel bans and used Africa as an example.

He then suggested this would not happen again because “people were much more prepared.”

“When you came to Africa, movement between two villages was not possible during the heat of the pandemic,” he said.

“So a decision had to be made.

“Although we don’t know the scientific basis for those decisions, people had to comply and we think it worked.

“But now with the benefit of hindsight, a lot of the things that happened with Covid wouldn’t have happened from what we know now.

“People were much more prepared than they were before.”

Lavoie then sought full and incontrovertible clarification.

“We know that the lockdown was bad for business and bad for children,” she said.

“Now that we know so much information, should we do the same for the next pandemic?”

“No that’s what I’m saying,” Issahaku responded.

“A lot of the decisions were not backed by science.”



Scientists across the political spectrum sounded the alarm on the harm of lockdowns from the beginning of the pandemic.

Political elites and their allies in Big Tech and the media, however, derided them as conspiracy theorists who were spreading “disinformation.”

The few politicians who actually followed the science, such as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, saved their economies from ruin and countless lives in the process.

As Slay News previously reported, DeSantis has now vowed to hold Big Pharma companies accountable for pushing their vaccines onto the public while suppressing information about the risks.

The governor put the pharmaceutical industry on notice by warning the public that mRNA Covid shots “ended up killing people.”
