The WHO said what?
A number of people are now claiming on social media that the WHO, which in this case is short for the World Health Organization, has just “reversed” its position and now “admits” that Covid-19 coronavirus lockdowns are harmful. For example, Maxime Bernier, a former Member of the Canadian Parliament, tweeted the following on Sunday:
Those of us who have been saying that lockdowns have disastrous economic and health effects have been called selfish conspiracy nuts by public health officials and the mainstream media.

And then on Monday, there was this tweet from U.S. President Donald Trump:
The World Health Organization just admitted that I was right. Lockdowns are killing countries all over the world. The cure cannot be worse than the problem itself. Open up your states, Democrat governors. Open up New York. A long battle, but they finally did the right thing!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 12, 2020
Trump tweeting that he was right about something? Shocking. But the WHO “admitting” that Trump was right? What? From the WHO? When? Where exactly was he getting this stuff?
