More than 7,000 health scientists from many countries confirmed that continued lockdowns to prevent the spread of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus would generate “irreparable damage” if appropriate health measures are not adopted.
“Current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short- and long-term public health,” the scientists warned in signing a declaration.
Among the negative effects are: “lower childhood vaccination rates, worsening cardiovascular disease outcomes, fewer cancer screenings, and deteriorating mental health—leading to greater excess mortality in years to come,” they added.
The initiative, The Great Barrington Declaration, since Oct. 4, has been promoted by scientists from prestigious universities from around the world.
Among the signatories are Harvard University professor Dr. Martin Kulldorff, Oxford University epidemiologist Dr. Sunetra Gupta, and Stanford University physician and epidemiologist Dr. Jay Bhattacharya.
Instead of policy-ordered lockdowns, the scientists recommend a “targeted protection” approach.
This approach especially protects high-risk populations, such as the elderly and people with comorbidities.
Scientists also believe that for young people and many others, “COVID-19 [the CCP Virus] is less dangerous than many other harms, including influenza.”
The specialists agree with the procedure followed in Sweden, where society achieved herd immunity. Populations at lower risk contract the virus and provide an immunity that decreases the threat of the virus to society in general, said The Daily Wire.
In addition, they greatly boost the pace of life before the emergence of the pandemic, including attending classes in person, returning to sports and avoiding work from home for young people, among other activities.
The initiative is also supported by 15,556 doctors and 217,516 from the general public, up to now.
An example of the application of the recommendations of The Great Barrington Declaration, and which experiences results similar to those obtained in Sweden, is observed in the state of Florida.
The governor opened the economy, and the pace of life returned to normal, and even the use of masks is no longer mandatory, and the number of infections did not increase significantly, according to Breitbart.
