Over 43 Thousand medical and public health scientists have signed the Great Barrington Declaration. These experts believe that the Mandatory Lockdowns have done more damage than good.... and that should get your attention!
The report says "We have grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies."
The documents lists some of the devastating effects of the lockdown. The first are the lower childhood vaccination rates. As Dr. Bhattacharya argues, "another result of the lockdown is that people stopped bringing their children in for immunizations against diseases like whooping cough and polio, because they had been led to fear Covid more than they feared these more deadly diseases."
The doctor also said "Large numbers of Americans, even though they had cancer and needed chemo, didnt come in for treatment because they were more afraid of Covid than Cancer. Others have skipped their recommended cancer screenings. We are going to see a rise in cancer and cancer death rates as a consequence."
He also points out that the mandatory lockdowns have been devastating for Mental health, he says that "in a way mental health problems have been the most shocking, In June of this year, a CDC survey found that one in four adults between ages 18 to 24 had seriously considered self-destruction. Human beings are not designed to live alone".
Then there is the economy and of course this pandemic hurts the poorest folks the most, as it stalls their ability to maintain a job and it will do long term damage to supply chains that we cannot even begin to comprehend.
The Great Barrington Declaration says the best way to combat this virus is what they call "Focused Protection." It involves ending the mandatory lockdowns and protecting the vulnerable, I now quote "nursing homes should use staff with acquired immunity and perform frequent testing off other staff and all visitors." Retired people living at home should have groceries and other essentials delivered to their home."
Immunity is right around the corner if we play our cards right. To quote the report "The Most compassionate approach that balances the risks and benefits of reaching herd immunity is to allow those who are at minimal risk of death to live their lives normally to build up immunity to the virus through natural infection, while better protecting those who are at higher risk. We call this focused protection."
Before you get upset with me, don't blame the messenger, and by the way, 43 thousand science - favoring people agree with me! Check out the Great Barrington Declaration for more info.
