Video: Lockdowns vs protecting the vulnerable

In this video, there is a discussion about the failure of lockdowns to stop the pandemic. Those in charge have tried to explain away their failure with woeful cries, “if we had only locked down sooner.” Yet more and more studies are stating the obvious that the lockdowns did not work. If they did, this pandemic would have been over months ago. Many are now saying there should have been a targeted approach, focussing our attention on protecting those who are actually vulnerable to the virus, the elderly and those with underlying health conditions. In the US, 95% of the COVID deaths involved people over the age of 50 with 80% over the age of 65 and of course, many of those had underlying health issues as well.

Study shows lockdowns did not work

Another study out of Canada reveals that if the goal of the lockdowns was to flatten the COVID curve, they failed miserably. Most of the lockdowns were just theatrics, as governments driven by the fear generated by mainstream media, needed to appear like they were doing something. In her study, Maria Krylova compared U.S. states with heavy lockdown restrictions with similar states with significantly reduced restrictions: Minnesota vs Wisconsin and California vs Florida.

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.”

Drug overdose deaths 621, COVID 173: San Francisco

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that nearly 4 times as many people died of drug overdoses in San Francisco than died of COVID-1984 in 2020. And in just 11 months, the number of overdoses recorded in the city had increased by 180 over the total number of overdose recorded in 2019. In comparison, 173 people had died of COVID so far in 2020. The lockdowns are largely blamed for the dramatic increase in overdose deaths.

WHO divided over lockdowns

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. Breitbart explains: 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. READ: Backflip: W.H.O.
