A professor at Stanford University Medical School has described lockdowns as the “worst public health mistake ever made” and said that the harm to people is “catastrophic.”
Dr. Jay Bhattacharya was speaking during an interview with the Daily Clout. He co-authored The Great Barrington Declaration, the petition that calls for an end to lockdowns. Tens of thousands of scientists and medical doctors have signed the declaration.
Bhattacharya told the Daily Clout that the declaration came about because of two facts. He said:
“One is that people who are older have a much higher risk from dying from COVID than people who are younger…and that’s a really important fact because we know who his most vulnerable, it’s people that are older.
So the first plank of the Great Barrington Declaration: let’s protect the vulnerable,” Bhattacharya said. “The other idea is that the lockdowns themselves impose great harm on people. Lockdowns are not a natural normal way to live.”
“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.
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.”
I believe that lockdown sceptical scientists outnumber those who support them.
I say this because to date, the Great Barrington Declaration has been signed by more than 13,000 medical and public health scientists and 41,000 medical practitioners.
The public is unaware of this. The only scientists seen on the media today, are those who advocate for lockdowns now and warn of lockdowns to come next Winter.
I repeat, this could be over in a day, if the media decided to end it.
