Over 6000 Scientists, Doctors Sign Anti-lockdown Petition, by Steve Watson

These scientists and doctors now want to do what should have been done six months ago. Better late than never. From Steve Watson at summit.news:

Calls for only ‘focused protection’ of vulnerable people from COVID so everyone else can build herd immunity

Over six thousand scientists and doctors have signed a petition against coronavirus lockdown measures, urging that those not in the at risk category should be able to get on with their lives as normal, and that lockdown rules in both the US and UK are causing ‘irreparable damage’.

Those who have signed include professors from the world’s leading universities. Oxford University professor Dr Sunetra Gupta was one of the authors of the open letter that was sent with the petition, along with Harvard University’s Dr Martin Kulldorff and Stanford’s Dr Jay Bhattacharya.

It declares that social distancing and mask mandates are causing ‘damaging physical and mental health impacts.’

The petition, dubbed the Great Barrington Declaration after the town in Massachusetts where it was written, has been signed by close to 54,000 members of the public at time of writing, as well as over 2600 medical and public health scientists and around 3500 medical practitioners.

“Those who are not vulnerable should immediately be allowed to resume life as normal,” it notes, adding “Keeping these [lockdown] measures in place until a vaccine is available will cause irreparable damage, with the underprivileged disproportionately harmed.”

  1. One of the core themes of lockdown was protecting the elderly. But do the elderly want to be protected? When you reach a certain age you accept the next stop is death. When I was a student my elderly landlord contracted pneumonia and died. One week he was alive and well, the next week gone. In contrast close friends and relatives died of cancer. They went through a year’s hell of cancer treatment. Recovered, but with impaired health and reduced quality of life only for the cancer to return and spend another year dying of it. In conditions just as bad as dying from Covid, just prolonged. I know what I would prefer to die of.
