Study: Lockdowns ‘one of the greatest peacetime policy failures in modern history’

Yet another study out of Canada has concluded that the lockdown cure was worse than the disease it was supposed to be fighting. Not only were they basically ineffective in reducing the number of COVID deaths, but they had huge unintended negative consequences.

The study noted that the lockdowns were based on “false assumptions,” that’s code for computer modelling.

And I love and hate that last line (because we had to live through it), “lockdowns will go down as one of the greatest policy failures in modern history.’

“An examination of over 100 Covid-19 studies reveals that many relied on false assumptions that over-estimated the benefits and under-estimated the costs of lockdown. The most recent research has shown that lockdowns have had, at best, a marginal effect on the number of Covid-19 deaths. “And,”Using a mid-point estimate for costs and benefits, the reasonable estimate for Canada is a cost/benefit ratio of 141. It is possible that lockdown will go down as one of the greatest peacetime policy failures in modern history.”

It was all a political show.
