Study: No ‘clear, significant’ evidence of lockdowns slowing COVID


While many in the mainstream media have been bashing anyone who questions lockdowns as an effective tool in fighting COVID, researchers are coming to a different conclusion. A recent international study comparing how COVID spread in countries that implemented harsh lockdowns compared to those that didn’t, concluded there was “no clear, significant beneficial effect of [more restrictive measure] on case growth in any country.”

The Foundation of Economic Freedom writes:

“A new study evaluating COVID-19 responses around the world found that mandatory lockdown orders early in the pandemic did not provide significantly more benefits to slowing the spread of the disease than other voluntary measures, such as social distancing or travel reduction,” Newsweek reports. “The study compared cases in England, France, Germany, Iran, Italy, Netherlands, Spain and the U.S. – all countries that implemented mandatory lockdown orders and business closures – to South Korea and Sweden, which implemented less severe, voluntary responses.”

The researchers found “no clear, significant beneficial effect of [more restrictive measures] on case growth in any country.”

And I am absolutely flabbergasted that NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo has actually come to his sense calling for an end to the lockdowns:
