FACT CHECK: No, The World Economic Forum Did Not Publish A Timeline On When A Second Pandemic Would Arise

A photo shared on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, allegedly shows a timeline published by the World Economic Forum that showed a second pandemic would emerge in September 2023.   

Verdict: False

The claim is inaccurate. There are no credible news reports confirming WEF published such an agenda.

Fact Check: 

Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy has stated that he regrets taking two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, according to NBC News. His wife, throat cancer surgeon Apoorva Ramaswamy, has said she would take the vaccine again if given the chance, differing over a central issue of her husband’s campaign, according to CNN.

An X post claims the WEF predicted a second pandemic would take place in September 2023. The post shares the alleged timeline with the WEF logo on the top right.

“Stellar announced in 5 days the world will change,” the caption reads in part. “Now the World Economic Forum also announced in 5 days a new pandemic will arise.” (RELATED: Did The World Economic Forum Cancel U.S. Elections?)

This claim is baseless, however. There are no results on the WEF website detailing the purported agenda. The WEF did publish an article speculating on how the next pandemic can be handled better, but there is no prediction of when a second pandemic would be. 

There are no credible news reports confirming that the WEF published such a timeline. 

Check Your Fact has reached out to the WEF for comment and will update this piece accordingly if one is received from either source.
