A list of potential messages
- The virus is not as dangerous as it has been made out. Data from across the world shows the mortality effects of covid to be about the same as for a bad influenza year. For Sweden, which refused to have economy-destroying lockdowns, their excess deaths for 2020 were only 1.5% higher than the average of the previous five years (note 1).
- Lockdowns don’t work, but do enormous health, social and economic damage. The world’s most revered medical journal, The Lancet, published a study in July, 2020, that showed “full lockdowns, rapid border closures and widespread testing” have no effect on infection and death rates (note 2). There is also a considerable number of peer-reviewed research papers that support the findings of The Lancet, but also show that lockdowns destroy hundreds of thousands of perfectly healthy, normal lives (note 3).
- They claim otherwise, but our governments have not been following the science. In 2019, the WHO published guidance for countries dealing with pandemics and epidemics. That guidance did NOT call for lockdowns, curfews, border closures and contact tracing (note 4).
