Growing number of medical specialists oppose lockdowns


The way politicians and many in the mainstream media are pushing the COVID-1984 lockdowns, you would think every medical specialist in the world must favour of them. Far from true, thousands of medical scientists/practitioners are pushing back against the lockdowns.

Athony Furey, a reporter for the Toronto Sun, recently tweeted a list of a few of the medical specialist in Canada who state that lockdowns are not the answer:

The Great Barrington Declaration was started on Oct 4, 2020 by three of the world’s leading epidemiologists, Dr. Martin Kulldorf: Harvard University, Dr. Sunetra Gupta: Oxford University and Dr. Jay Bhattacharya: Stanford University, calling for an end to the lockdowns because they are not only ineffective in fighting viruses, they cause more damage than the disease they are supposed to be fighting.

They state that governments should instead focus their attention on protecting those most vulnerable to the virus, the elderly and those with underlying health conditions, not the healthy.

  • On Oct 7, 2020, 2,400 medical epidemiologists/researchers/scientists had signed the petition calling for an end to lockdowns. On Jan .9, 2021, the number sits at 13,290.
  • On Oct 7, 2020, 2,600 medical practitioners had signed the declaration. On Jan. 9, 2021 the number sits at 40,199.
