Since the onset of the “pandemic,” anyone challenging the official narrative was marginalized, demonetized, or outright silenced. What developed was a cult of conformity where speaking out (regardless of one’s level of expertise or wealth of statistical evidence) became dangerous to maintaining one’s professional and social life.
As the weeks of “curve flattening” have morphed into months of prolonged lockdowns, more and more people are regaining the courage to Think for Themselves. The handful of brave doctors (and journalists) who initially questioned the preposterously high projected death rates and devastating social, psychological, and economic effects of “lockdowns,” have been joined by thousands of likeminded medical professionals who now recognize “the cure is more deadly than the disease.”
Jayanta Bhattacharya, Professor of Medicine at Stanford, stated, “In March I felt alone. [Now] I think there are a very large number of public-health experts, epidemiologists and doctors who oppose further lockdowns.”
Bhattacharya is one of the co-authors of the “The Great Barrington Declaration,” which urges government to protect the most vulnerable members of society while allowing the young and healthy to resume normal life and develop herd immunity. The Declaration has inspired a diverse group of over 6,000 doctors and scientists from around the world who have signed onto the petition.
Most likely, considering the global nature of the scientists, they are fully aware of how Sweden handled the virus without locking down and achieved lower death rates several other European countries which imposed strict lockdowns and masks.
Doctors and scientists who signed the Declaration are united in their belief that lockdown measures will end up killing more people than the coronavirus itself. Gerd Muller, Germany’s minister of Economic Cooperation and Development, believes the response to the pandemic will result in “one of the biggest” hunger and poverty crises in human history.
Peter Nilsson, a Swedish professor of internal medicine and epidemiology at Lund University, echoed Muller’s economic concerns, “It’s so important to understand that the deaths of COVID-19 will be far less than the deaths caused by societal lockdown when the economy is ruined.”
Some concerned doctors warned of excess deaths resulting from untreated cancers and other foregone medical treatments, while others focused on the long-term social consequences of lockdowns. Despite the specific concerns of the individual doctors, the common bond all these professionals share is the thought that the lockdowns are more harmful than the disease.
TRENDPOST: Opposition to official dictates will continue to increase as governments continue to impose authoritarian edicts despite statistical evidence countering the concept of a deadly pandemic. The main reason being their economies are rapidly declining and national protests against their lockdown actions are escalating.
Indeed, with mounting pressures against them, many may be more concerned about their own death rate rather than those killed by the virus.
