UN Guterres Only Told His Favorites UNnamed Philippines Dip Has Coronavirus Lays Off Staff

By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive

UN GATE, March 13 – How corrupt and irresponsible is the UN of Antonio Guterres? Well, while Guterres roughs up and bans the Press which asks about Coronavirus and his complicity, with Cameroon, an unnamed diplomat from the Philippines has come down with Covid-19.

 Now on March 13 it has emerged that when the UN had this information it only sent it to its less than 100 "active" resident correspondents, members of the UN Correspondents Association on which Chinese state media Xinhua has an ongoing veto-weilding seat. Aren't organizations supposed to tell all those who are in jeopardy? Today's UN is irresponsible, and a menace.

  Inner City Press has asked, before the UN's March 13 noon briefing, "March 13-1: On the Coronavirus Covid-19, please immediately state the conditions and mitigation for the lay off of all Delegates Dining Room staff which Inner City Press reported yesterday after being contacted by staff complaining there is no mitigation of economic harm. Separately, has SG Guterres been tested for COVID-19?" No answer at all, nor to a question about a Portuguese visitor to Guterres. Watch this site.

Here's Philippines, whose website does not list staff: "12 March 2020, New York. -- A staff of the Philippine Mission to the United Nations has tested positive today for the COVID-19 virus. Deputy Permanent Representative Kira D. Azucena, Charge d Affaires, a.i. of the Mission, immediately advised the United Nations medical director’s office of this development, as well as the NYC health department. The latter’s advice was to self-isolate. CDA Azucena also advised the other Missions to the United Nations accordingly.  As of today, the Philippine Center in New York housing the Philippine Mission is on lockdown until further notice and its employees have been instructed to self-quarantine and to seek medical attention should they develop the symptoms.  The staff currently isolated is in good condition. She last visited the United Nations last Monday, March 9, for about 30 minutes — from 12.50 to 1.20 pm. She was asymptomatic then. The following day, Tuesday, March 10, she came down with flu-like symptoms and, in accordance with the Mission’s office protocol, did not report for work that day and saw her doctor. She tested positive for flu and was prescribed Tamiflu. She got the call today that she tested positive for COVID-19.  The Philippine Mission will continue to work closely with the New York health department to monitor the situation."

  The UN should be shut down - permanently, or until Guterres is gone and in jail. ICC or MCC.

While the United Nations preaches how countries should mitigate the impacts of their response to Coronavirus COVID-19, at UN Headquarters under Secretary General Antonio Guterres the Delegates Dining Room workers are being summarily laid off, with no mitigation. Photo here.

  Workers in the UN Delegates Dining Room, outraged at the callousness of Guterres who lives alone in a four story mansion on 57th Street and Sutton Place, sent banned Inner City Press a copy of their lay-off notice.

  Guterres had Inner City Press roughed up by his Security - one of whom Augustine Pavel recently jumped off a building on 45th Street and Second Avenue, Inner City Press exclusive here after no answers from UN - rough up Inner City Press after it interviewed Cameroon's Ambassador on 3 July 2018; his Spokesperson Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming have banned Inner City Press since, without no explanation or right to appeal. These people are corrupt hypocrites - and increasingly, criminals. Watch this site.

On February 29 Inner City Press exclusively published an internal UNESCO email leaked to it about the agency's contact with the Coronavirus COVID-19 and its cover up. UN system boss Antonio Guterres, typically pro-China, has refused banned Press questions on it.

   This is Antonio Guterres' UN. We will have more on that.
