Infectious disease experts call for end of lockdowns

It’s called The Great Barrington Declaration and involves over 5,000 medical professionals (including 2,400 medical scientist) who have signed a petition calling for an end of the lockdowns because of the damage they are doing to people both physically and mentally.

WND explains:

Leading epidemiologists have launched a petition calling for an end to lockdowns of the healthy and, instead, focusing on protecting the people who are vulnerable to the coronavirus.

Professors Dr. Martin Kulldorff of Harvard, Dr. Sunetra Gupta of Oxford and Dr. Jayanta Bhattacharya of Stanford announced the effort in an interview Monday with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham.

The Great Barrington Declaration states that as “infectious disease epidemiologists and public health scientists we have grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies, and recommend an approach we call Focused Protection.”

The group added that governments need to take a risk/age based approach to the virus. There is a need to protect people most vulnerable to the virus including the elderly and those with underlying health issues (often the same people). But this lockdown should not include those who are young and healthy.

The group is also recommending herd immunity which they believe could happen quickly if the lockdowns were ended.

One of the signers, Stanford’s Dr. Jayanta Bhattacharya, said that there is nearly a 100% survival rate for those under the age of 70 and 95% for those who are older.

And in Victoria, Australia, where the tyrant of the day, Premier Daniel Andrews, still enforces that state’s lockdown with an iron fist, health experts are now warning of suicide spikes among teens and elderly males. One Melbourne doctor warned this is “just the tip of the iceberg.” Note the following article (READ: Suicide spike as fears grow for mental health) is behind a paywall, but is explained in the Sky News video below
