A judge in Belgium has ordered the country to end the county-wide lockdown within 30 days. The Brussels Times writes: The Belgian State has been ordered to lift “all coronavirus measures” within 30 days, as the legal basis for them is insufficient, a Brussels court ruled on Wednesday. The League for Human Rights had filed the lawsuit several weeks ago and challenged Belgium’s system of implementing the measures using Ministerial Decrees, which means it is done without any input from parliament. The judge gave the Belgian State 30 days to provide a sound legal basis, or face a penalty of €5,000 per day that this period is exceeded, with a maximum limit of €200,000, reports Le Soir.

The judge ruled that the government must now prove its extreme lockdown measures are necessary and that they work. …

Mental health experts in the Canadian province of Ontario are warning of people’s declining mental health due to COVID and its related lockdowns. In fact, according to the Canadian Mental Health Association, things have gotten much worse because of the second lockdown in the province. Of course, it’s not surprising, since the province also has one of the most restrictive lockdowns in Canada. Notice, how people are also claiming they are lonely. The Toronto Sun explains: The poll suggests only 35 per cent of Ontarians consider their mental health to be “very good” or “excellent,” compared to 52 per cent in the first round of polling in May. It also shows nearly 80 per cent of respondents believe there will be a “serious mental health crisis” post-pandemic, compared to 66 per cent in August and 69 per cent in May.

A recent survey by Christian Research discovered that people are reading their Bibles more during the COVID pandemic and associated lockdowns, and this is not a wasted exercise as many stated it is having a positive impact on their mental health. The age group reporting the largest increase was those aged 25 to 34, where over 50% indicated that they are reading their Bible more often. The survey also revealed that people are using new ways to engage with scripture. While print versions of the Bible still remains popular, Bible apps are being used more often, and a surprisingly 30% reported that they are now listening to the Bible. This growing interest in listening to scripture shouldn’t surprise us because it has its reward as the Apostle Paul tells us that “faith comes from hearing” (Romans 10:17). The survey also found that the Bible reading increased people’s hope that things were going to improve. The Bible tells us that hope is a vital component of faith (Hebrews 11:1).

Increasingly more voices are rising up and stating that the lockdowns are causing more harm than the virus they are supposed to be fighting. The latest published in Perspectives on Psychological Science reports on the hidden costs of loneliness which they say is the equivalent of smoking 15 cigarettes a day. The Western Journal explains: “Long-term social isolation is known to carry an increased risk of mortality comparable to smoking 15 cigarettes a day — and lonely people are more likely to choose coping mechanisms that aren’t good for their health,” The Guardian reported Saturday. That statistic came from research originally published in Perspectives on Psychological Science. The Guardian talked to numerous people who have suffered debilitating depression caused by the social isolation of government-mandated shutdowns. In November, the U.K. Office for National Statistics published a report showing that crippling loneliness has surged to record levels, especially among 16-to-29-year-olds. This revelation mirrors similar trends from around the world. In Japan, for example, suicides outnumbered COVID-19 deaths in 2020. READ: Researchers Find Damaging Effects of Long-Term Social …

According to a recent survey conducted in Denmark, while women were the ones the hardest hit mentally by the first lockdown, men are the ones being most impacted by the second lockdowns. But despite the shift, overall women are still the ones who have experienced the most mental stress because of the lockdowns being instituted by governments around the world because of COVID. Study Finds reports: AARHUS, Denmark — The last 12 months have been tough for everyone, regardless of gender. That being said, a new study out of Denmark finds that while women initially showed greater signs of mental distress during the first round of Spring 2020 lockdowns, it’s now men facing the most mental health challenges during COVID’s “second wave.” “We see that men’s psychological well-being is lower in the November-December measurement than it was during the spring lockdown, while the trend has gone in the opposite direction for women,” says study author Søren Dinesen Østergaard, professor at the Department of Clinical Medicine and affiliated with the Department of Affective Disorders at Aarhus University …
