Lockdowns themselves impose great harm on people
Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, a Professor of Medicine at Stanford University, told Newsweek that COVID-19 lockdowns are “the single worst public health mistake in the last 100 years.”
The professor warned that lockdowns are 'disproportionately impacting the poor and making wealth inequality worse' going on to explain how the areas that imposed the most draconian lockdowns 'didn’t see the most success in controlling the virus.'
“I stand behind my comment that the lockdowns are the single worst public health mistake in the last 100 years. We will be counting the catastrophic health and psychological harms, imposed on nearly every poor person on the face of the earth, for a generation” said Dr Bhattacharya.
"At the same time, they have not served to control the epidemic in the places where they have been most vigorously imposed. In the US, they have – at best – protected the “non-essential” class from COVID, while exposing the essential working class to the disease. The lockdowns are trickle down epidemiology,”
Dr Bhattacharya went on to say "lockdowns themselves impose great harm on people. Lockdowns are not a natural normal way to live."
Bhattacharya is one of the co-authors of the Great Barrington Declaration, which has received over 13,000 signatures from medical and public health scientists.
The declaration states that clearly “lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and long-term public health,” citing “worsening cardiovascular disease outcomes, fewer cancer screenings and deteriorating mental health – leading to greater excess mortality in years to come.”
The Barrington Declaration has been attacked by Lockdown advocates as being some type of fringe science when, in reality, it is Lockdowns that are the fringe science. Nowhere in the world, for any disease, ever, has isolating the healthy been performed. Before Covid the idea would have been laughed at. Putting entire countries under house arrest for a year for anything, least of all for 'medical' reasons is the real 'loony fringe science' here. The Barrington Declaration on the other hand is the normal, established, mainstream science.
It is incredible that those imposing imprisonment of an entire nation, indefinitely, have managed to convince the public that this is normal, scientific, and routine, and that, whatever went before, including the pandemic plan that the government had prior to Covid, are whacky, fringe-theories, by 'Covid deniers' .
