Stay home: It could save lives, they say. But does staying cooped up inside really protect against Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) infection? Not according to science.
A new collection of papers put together by The Fat Emperor definitively shows that lockdowns do not save lives, and in fact costs them. Here is what we know:
1) Staying home provides a false sense of security
Research published in the peer-reviewed Elsevier journal EClinicalMedicine found that lockdowns do not lead to any noticeable reduction in mortality rates.
Elderly people are still more at risk than everybody else of getting sick or dying, while those at low risk who are stuck inside only end up losing wages and adopting bad habits like smoking, which is far more dangerous than contracting COVID-19.
2) Coronavirus “cases” started dropping before lockdowns, masks
Early on in the “pandemic,” the argument went that lockdowns resulted in fewer “cases” of COVID-19. However, research out of Germany found that the spread of the novel virus had “receded autonomously … before any interventions” were imposed.
It is now believed that so-called “herd immunity” was achieved all on its own, making mask mandates and forced lockdowns a pointless effort, despite their continued persistence.
3) Sweden did things right by preserving freedom, liberty
Similar observances were noted in the United Kingdom, where lockdowns were some of the strictest in the world. Researchers there discovered that the COVID-19 caseload had begun to plummet before lockdowns were imposed.
“A Bayesian inverse problem approach applied to U.K. data on COVID-19 deaths and the published disease duration distribution suggests that infections were in decline before U.K. lockdown, and that infections in Sweden started to decline only a short time later,” a University of Bristol paper found.
4) Illogical circular reasoning was used to justify lockdowns
Another similar paper out of Germany was more direct in declaring that the purported effects of lockdowns are “pure artefacts” that “contradict the data.”
The researchers involved with this one determined that lockdowns in the U.K. were “both superfluous and ineffective,” as was “social distancing.” Sweden, meanwhile, was:
“… the only country in the dataset that refrained from strong measures, but has lower corona deaths per capita than Belgium, Italy, Spain, or the United Kingdom.”
5) COVID-19 infections decline all on their own, without government intervention
Prof. Isaac Ben-Israel back in April determined that no matter where COVID-19 strikes, and no matter what the government does to try to stop it, the virus declines to almost zero after 70 days regardless.
Paralyzing the economy and plunging the masses into isolation and depression, it turns out, does nothing to affect this inevitable outcome, meaning the best thing to do is to simply let COVID-19 run its natural course.
6) Social distancing only damages fabric of society, providing no benefits
As for staying six feet apart from all other humans, this, too, is a fruitless effort with serious long-term consequences.
Humans are social creatures, and depriving them of natural human interaction can take a much more serious toll on health than a virus with a 99.9-plus percent survival rate in most demographic categories.
7) Closing schools only hurts children, who have an almost zero chance of suffering complications from COVID-19 infection
In a panicked attempt at stymieing the spread of COVID-19, some countries like the U.K. shut down all schools, forcing children into isolated remote learning. Doing this accomplished nothing, though, and only ended up harming children who were deprived of healthy interactions with their friends and teachers.
School closures, it turns out, actually increased the death rate among young people, who have almost no risk of getting sick from COVID-19 alone.
8) There’s no such thing as asymptomatic spread
Despite continued media and big government fearmongering, healthy people who are asymptomatic are not “carriers” of COVID-19. In fact, there is no such thing as asymptomatic spread; it was all a farce to keep people masked and living in fear.
9) Destroying the economy does not cure COVID-19
It might seem like common sense, but forcing small businesses into bankruptcy and depriving people of their livelihood is never an appropriate response to the spread of any kind of sickness.
Sick people and those susceptible to illness can choose to stay home if they feel doing so will keep them protected during a plandemic, but forcing everyone else to do the same is both foolish and futile.
10) PCR tests produce false positives almost 100 percent of the time
All that testing taking place at drive-thru clinics is a complete waste of time, seeing as how the PCR “nose javelin” test is wrong more than 97 percent of the time.
A Portuguese court found that the PCR test is medically useless and basically a hoax, but it is still being used across America to pump up the COVID-19 numbers and make it appear as though we are still in some kind of fictitious “second wave.”
The moral of the story with all this is that every government intervention taken to “save lives” did the exact opposite of what the “authorities” claimed they would do. Even so, many of these interventions are still being “mandated” across America because the delusion is strong.
“[T]he lockdown ideology is destroying our societal health, selling the lie of saving lives,” reports The Fat Emperor. “Lockdowns cost net suffering and lives – by a huge margin. Here we gather together the evidence.”
