In recent years and months, the long-held definitions of three words all changed, with immense ramifications for public health policy in the midst of COVID-19. WHO’s original definition of a pandemic from May 1, 2009, specified simultaneous epidemics worldwide “with enormous numbers of deaths and illnesses”; this definition was changed in the month leading up to the 2009 swine flu pandemic, removing the severity and high mortality criteria. COVID-19 vaccines are technically gene therapies and did not meet the definition of vaccine, until Merriam-Webster’s vaccine definition was recently changed to – conveniently – include a description of the experimental gene therapies. From June 2020 to November 2020, WHO changed their definition of herd immunity to imply that it’s a concept that only applies to vaccination, not naturally acquired immunity gained from prior infection. The implication for society is that by putting out this false information, they’re attempting to change your perception of what’s true and not true, and perverting science in the process.
