More Evidence Lockdowns Didn't Reduce COVID Deaths


The locking down of healthy people in their homes in order to prevent the spread of disease is an unprecedented public health move that has devastating effects on the economy and set a dangerous precedent for freedom and human rights.

If the lockdowns saved millions of lives, perhaps they could be justified, but if not they're easily -- as Stanford professor Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, Ph.D., put it -- the "biggest public health mistake we've ever made."[i] Increasingly, research is confirming that lockdowns, in fact, were worthless in terms of reducing deaths from COVID-19 while at the same time are guilty of causing "catastrophic" harm to the public.[ii]

'No Evidence' COVID Deaths Reduced by Staying Home

In November 2020, a group of researchers released a study based on a sophisticated mathematical model, which found staying at home, on its own, did not have a major role in COVID-19 disease transmission.[iii] Building on this, researchers from Brazil set out to determine the association between COVID-19 deaths per million people and the percentage of people who remained in their residences on lockdown.[iv]
