This was a bit of a shock, but it appears there is a bit of disagreement going on at the World Health Organization (WHO) about the benefits of lockdowns.
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO’s boss, has come out strongly supportive of lockdowns (and Communist China), however, another member of WHO has just publicly condemned the lockdowns stating that all they are achieving is poverty.
The UK’s envoy to the World Health Organisation (W.H.O.) has condemned mass coronavirus lockdowns, slamming the “ghastly global catastrophe” caused by crashing the world economy.
Dr. David Nabarro from the W.H.O. appealed to world leaders on Saturday, telling them to stop “using lockdowns as your primary control method” of the coronavirus.
He claimed that the only thing lockdowns achieved was poverty – with no mention of the potential lives saved.
Of course, this is not the first time that I have reported on the growing disagreements among health care professions on the health benefits of lockdowns, that have turned political.
Three of the world’s leading epidemiologists created the Great Barrington Declaration calling for the end of the lockdowns saying they are not only causing damage to people’s mental and physical well-being, they are ineffective in stopping COVID.
- On October 7, 2020, 2,600 medical practitioners has signed the declaration calling for an end lockdowns, when I checked this morning it had grown to 19,575.
- On October 7, 2020, 2,400 medical researchers/scientists, including professors and epidemiologists, were calling for the end of the lockdowns. This morning that number had grown to 8,100.
