The Daily Wire has provided a list of seven Democrats who act like the COVID-1984 restrictions are beneath them.

Pathologist: ‘Utterly unfounded public hysteria driven by the media and politicians’

Dr. Roger Hodkinson is a Cambridge-trained virologist working in Canada. He recently made a presentation to the Edmonton City Council, the capital of the Canadian province of Alberta, that was considering extending its COVID-1984 mask mandate.

500 academics say British COVID risk exaggerated?

With Brits being threatened with fines if they are caught outside their homes without a legitimate reason under the country’s second wave lockdown, 500 academics have accused the British government of exaggerating the COVID risk in order to justify its actions. The Daily Mail explains: Official data is ‘exaggerating’ the risk of Covid-19 and talk of a second wave is ‘misleading’, nearly 500 academics told Boris Johnson in open letter attacking lockdown. The doctors and scientists said the Government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic has become ‘disproportionate’ and that mass testing has distorted the risk of the virus. They said tests are likely to be producing high numbers of ‘false positive’ results and the Government must do more to put infection and death rates within the context of normal seasonal rates. The letter criticised the Government’s handling of coronavirus for ‘causing more harm than good’.

2nd lockdown could have serious mental health fallout: Researchers warn

It is more from the supposed cure is worse than the disease file. With governments around the world initiating second lockdowns because of another wave of Covid, mental health professionals are warning second lockdowns could have a devastating impact on society. The first lockdown impacted people’s mental health and a second one could potentially compound this, leading to a devastating increase in suicides and drug overdoses. Christian Post explains: A second wave of devastation stemming from the novel coronavirus pandemic including soaring suicides and drug overdoses is imminent with the declining mental health of communities, medical researchers warn and it is expected to disproportionately impact the poor, older adults, blacks and Hispanics. The warning came in Mental Health Disorders Related to COVID-19–Related Deaths published in The Journal of the American Medical Association on Monday. […] “While nations struggle to manage the initial waves of the death and disruption associated with the pandemic, accumulating evidence indicates another ‘second wave’ is building: rising rates of mental health and substance use disorders,” the doctors wrote. “This imminent mental …

Stillborn deaths surged during COVID lockdowns

I have previously reported on how many are suggesting the lock downs have done more damage than the virus. Suicides are up. Depression is up. Drug abuse is up. Alcohol abuse is up. Unemployment up.

Reports are coming in from around the world that the number of stillborn deaths surged during the pandemic as pregnant women, either hindered by lock down restrictions or fears of COVID, did not seek medical help. Some countries reported that stillborn deaths were up 50%. The Blaze reports: An array of studies show that stillbirths have surged globally following lockdowns imposed in an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19, and researchers speculate the link could be from pregnant women avoiding hospitals and clinics out of fear of catching the virus while seeking prenatal care. Nature cited a slew of studies this week in reporting that stillbirth rates have risen “dramatically” since the pandemic began, and that “emerging data link disrupted …
