Open letter from medical doctors and health professionals to all Belgian authorities and all Belgian media.

Belgian doctors make the medical and scientific case for immediately ending all Covid-19 restrictions. From Belgian doctors and health professionals at docs4opendebate.be:

We, Belgian doctors and health professionals, wish to express our serious concern about the evolution of the situation in the recent months surrounding the outbreak of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. We call on politicians to be independently and critically informed in the decision-making process and in the compulsory implementation of corona-measures. We ask for an open debate, where all experts are represented without any form of censorship. After the initial panic surrounding covid-19, the objective facts now show a completely different picture – there is no medical justification for any emergency policy anymore.
The current crisis management has become totally disproportionate and causes more damage than it does any good.
We call for an end to all measures and ask for an immediate restoration of our normal democratic governance and legal structures and of all our civil liberties.

‘A cure must not be worse than the problem’ is a thesis that is more relevant than ever in the current situation. We note, however, that the collateral damage now being caused to the population will have a greater impact in the short and long term on all sections of the population than the number of people now being safeguarded from corona.
In our opinion, the current corona measures and the strict penalties for non-compliance with them are contrary to the values formulated by the Belgian Supreme Health Council, which, until recently, as the health authority, has always ensured quality medicine in our country: “Science – Expertise – Quality – Impartiality – Independence – Transparency”. 1

We believe that the policy has introduced mandatory measures that are not sufficiently scientifically based, unilaterally directed, and that there is not enough space in the media for an open debate in which different views and opinions are heard. In addition, each municipality and province now has the authorisation to add its own measures, whether well-founded or not.

Moreover, the strict repressive policy on corona strongly contrasts with the government’s minimal policy when it comes to disease prevention, strengthening our own immune system through a healthy lifestyle, optimal care with attention for the individual and investment in care personnel.2

  1. The issue is are govts actions making the situation worse? Due to the political class muddying the water it is hard to find relevant reliable facts, so you are forced to speculate. Covid is similar to flu. In temperate zones the flu season is winter when the temps drop and the elderly in under heated homes susceptible to flu and pneumonia die in greater numbers. There has been some wonder that Covid has not swept through Africa as black descent seem more vulnerable to Covid in Western countries. Some Africans even call Covid the White man’s disease. If Covid, typical of flu, does not like hot climates but favours cold govt actions are making the virus more deadly. In the southern states of USA keeping people in lockdown is keeping them out of the open air and sun which the virus doesn’t like. In Europe delaying herd immunity through lockdown makes it likely come winter we will have the worst death toll ever.
