Lockdowns did not save one life, but destroyed many, many more. Lockdowns where used to strike fear into people so that the people would accept the solution i.e Covid vaccines and vaccine passports.
The U.K advert "Stay home, save lives" was one pure lie. It was phycological manipulation.
Locking down a whole country or city does not stop the spread of a virus.
A peer reviewed study by a coveted and prestigious universities in California (Stanford) has shown that their collective reaction to Covid (lockdown) may have been completely worthless and done far more harm than good.
Around 30 international studies have all found that their impact on the spread of the virus is minimal.
The latest and arguably most authoritative of all was published this month by a world-class team led by Professor John Ioannidis of Stanford University, one of the world’s most respected epidemiologists. Its conclusions are unambiguous: harsh measures like lockdowns do not reduce the spread of infections at all, anywhere.
From the Stanford study:
“In the framework of this analysis, there is no evidence that more restrictive non-pharmaceutical interventions (“lockdowns”) contributed substantially to bending the curve of new cases in England, France, Germany, Iran, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, or the United States in early 2020. it is possible that stay-at-home orders may facilitate transmission if they increase person-to-person contact where transmission is efficient such as closed spaces”
Governments say they are following the science, but they are not because they would stop lockdowns immediately and follow the science of world’s most respected epidemiologist Professor John Ioannidis of Stanford University. But no the U.K government follows the advice of people like Patrick Valance who has £600,000 worth of shares in a Pharmaceutical company that makes Covid vaccines or Chris Whitty who has in the past been funded by Bill Gates to the tune of $40 million. Most of the U.K governments advisors on SAGE are mathematicians and modelers and at least half of them have some connection or financial interest in the big pharmaceutical industry.
As Dr Dayal Mukherjee, of Recovery’s Medicine & Science group, observes, “It is now very clear from the evidence published out of Stanford that lockdowns have not had a significant impact of case growth of the Covid-19 epidemics in countries including the UK, USA, France, Italy, and Iran.”
The peer reviewed study by Professor John P.A. Ioannidis and his associates can be found here:
Published Papers and Data on Lockdown Weak Efficacy – and Lockdown Huge Harms
The link below has another 29 papers proving lockdowns are destroying our society, our health, selling the lie of saving lives. Lockdowns cost suffering and lives – by a huge margin. Here is the evidence with 29 published papers.
The German Corona Extra-Parliamentary Inquiry Committee insist Lockdowns were unnecessary, and any claim to the contrary is wrong. The virus was already in retreat and infection rates were starting to decline when lockdowns were imposed.
The world renowned epidemiologist Dr. Knut Wittkowski studied the lockdowns and revealed how they did nothing to prevent the spread of Covid-19. This internationally respected scientist shared his findings in a video, and was censored immediately.
Why does a political doctor, like Anthony Fauci in the USA and Valance and Whitty in the U.K for given instant coverage to share their opinion yet hundreds, if not thousands of world renowned experts who oppose what we’ve been hearing in mainstream media are completely ignored and unacknowledged. In a major global pandemic you would think that government health authorities would work together with a number of independent scientists and organizations to figure out what’s truly the right move for humanity. Anyone who opposes the covid narrative is not given any airtime or coverage. Keep the people dumbed down that’s the number one priority.
This proves that lockdowns do not work. Let's look at the 10 countries around the world with the highest death rate from Covid. That is, deaths per million.
Countries with the highest death rates from Covid-19 (Allegedly) January 2021. The country is followed by deaths per million.
Belgium – 1771
Slovenia – 1580
Czech Rep – 1397
U.K – 1389
Bosnia – 1387
Italy – 1385
North Macedonia – 1315
USA – 1254
Bulgaria – 1250
Hungary – 1214
What did they do differently, and what did they do the same? These countries all locked down, relaxed them, then brought in tighter lockdowns at various times. Below is the first lockdown dates:
Belgium first locked down on March 18, 2020.
Slovenia first locked down on March 20, 2020.
Czech Rep. first locked down on March 16, 2020.
The UK first locked down March 23, 2020.
Bosnia-Herzegovina first locked down March 16, 2020.
Italy first locked down March 9, 2020.
North Macedonia first locked down March 18, 2020.
Bulgaria first locked down on March 13, 2020.
Hungary first locked down on March 28, 2020.
USA locked down at different times in different states
In the end, you can only rely on two things - did a country lock down and what is the death rate from Covid? These are the inescapable facts.
As you can see the 10 countries in the world with the highest death rates all locked down. Countries that did not lock down such as Sweden, Japan and Belarus had much lower deaths per million which proves that lockdowns do not save lives, they create economic devastation and actually increase the death rate. Governments know this data but purposely ignore it because they just use lockdowns to keep the population in fear and psychologically abuse them so that they will give in and take the covid vaccine which will enable them to bring in Covid\Health passports.
We can clearly see on this graph that the 7 countries with the highest death rates on the right all locked down hard and the 7 countries that did not lockdown on the left had fewer deaths. Graph was produced by U.K Column News.
Again compare the graphs. This one, comparing “Covid deaths” in the UK (top) (lockdown) and Sweden (no lockdown):
Or this one, comparing “Covid deaths” in California (top) (lockdown) and Florida (no lockdown):
Lockdowns and Mask Mandates Do Not Lead to Reduced COVID Transmission Rates or Deaths, New Study Suggests from the National Bureau of Economic Research.
A new National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) working paper by Andrew Atkeson, Karen Kopecky, and Tao Zha focused on countries and U.S. states with more than 1,000 COVID deaths as of late July. This analysis is the largest and most comprehensive analysis of the largest datasets to date. In all, the study included 25 U.S. states and 23 countries.
The paper’s conclusion is that the data trends indicate that nonpharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) – such as lockdowns, closures, travel restrictions, stay-home orders, event bans, quarantines, curfews, and mask mandates – do not seem to affect virus transmission rates overall.
The study concludes: Governments have conducted an unprecedented social, economic, and political experiment in controlling whole populations’ behavior, with high economic and human cost. The authors ask the right question: has this experiment in government-managed virus control and suppression made a difference? The startling answer they found, after examining data from around the country and the world, is that the evidence simply is not there. If we are concerned about the evidence on this global experiment, we must concede that most government authorities have likely acted in error.
“There is no evidence that lockdowns have reduced mortality from Covid-19 and research is now revealing the devastation that lockdowns are causing, particularly in the developing world. In these draconian lockdown policies, we have also seen the biggest infringement on civil liberties in democratic countries during peacetime. PANDA believes that, at this juncture, the science is quite clear on what key policy responses should be—or should have been. The cure should not be worse than the disease. It is critically important that societies are reopened, whilst protecting those who may be vulnerable to serious illness from SARS-CoV-2. Human agency must be upheld, and individuals should be empowered to make their own choices” - Nick Hudson – founder of PANDA - https://www.pandata.org/
Lockdowns don’t save lives and Sweden is all the proof you need.
Lockdowns do not work. The government knew that after the first lockdown but they still had two further lockdowns and min lockdowns or Tiers. They were not doing lockdowns to save lives. They were doing it to destroy lives and to keep people fearful so that they would take the vaccine and accept the covid passports. Keep people fearful and they will do anything. Sorry for the people who lost businesses and lost loved ones because of missed hospital appointments and suicides but these losses where because of lies, pure and simple.
It’s been more than apparent for most of the last fifty-two weeks that the agenda of lockdown was not public health, but laying the groundwork for the “new normal” and “the great reset”.
And we’ve all had lives ruined and a year of precious time wasted. For nothing. You’ve been locked up for three weeks (to flatten the curve) that lasted 365 days. For nothing. Lockdowns will happen again in 2021, 2022 and perhaps beyond with the fear of covid variants threw at us. The only way to stop them is not to acquiesce to their demands, don’t close your business, meet with anybody anytime, hug your family, have a birthday party, don’t wear a mask, don’t take a test, and don’t take the vaccine if you are healthy and have a functional immune system.
A Critical Analysis of the Covid Response
“Without lockdowns, the situation would have been worse”. This is the claim of lockdown advocates. However, this is the equivalent of administering treatment to a patient and claiming that despite a negative outcome the treatment is effective, because without the treatment the patient’s condition would have been even worse. Never in past epidemics or pandemics have lockdowns been imposed as a mitigation strategy over a large area or for a long period of time. Studies have shown that lockdowns cause unintended negative consequences to social well-being, mental health, physical health, mobility, employment, education, and the economy at large while undermining fundamental rights. Lockdown-induced deaths occur in younger people, causing an increase in total years of life lost. The comparison of epidemic curves in places with strict lockdowns and those with less stringent measures shows no significant differences in COVID-19 indicators. A simple cost-benefit analysis would clearly show that lockdown harms greatly outweigh any claimed benefits”.
Above article from: https://www.pandata.org/a-critical-analysis-of-the-covid-response/
“If we had not known about a new virus out there, and had not checked individuals with PCR [virus] tests, the number of total deaths due to ‘influenza-like illnesses would not seem unusual this year. At most, we might have casually noted that flu this season seems to be a bit worse than average. A population-wide case fatality rate of 0.05% is lower than seasonal influenza. If that is the true rate, locking down the world with potentially tremendous social and financial consequences may be totally irrational. It’s like an elephant being attacked by a house cat. Frustrated and trying to avoid the cat, the elephant accidentally jumps off a cliff and dies”. - Professor John Ioannidis, Stanford University epidemiologist and co-director of its Meta-Research Innovation Center
Professor Mark Woolhouse epidemiologist and specialist in infectious diseases, Edinburgh University Member of the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behaviors, that advises the Government stated that:
'Lockdown was a monumental disaster on a global scale. The cure was worse than the disease. I never want to see national lockdown again. It was always a temporary measure that simply delayed the stage of the epidemic we see now. It was never going to change anything fundamentally, however low we drove down the number of cases. We absolutely should never return to a position where children cannot play or go to school. I believe the harm lockdown is doing to our education, health care access, and broader aspects of our economy and society will turn out to be at least as great as the harm done by Covid-19.' - Professor Mark Woolhouse
Devastation caused by Lockdowns
What kind of damage have covid restrictions done? Globally, there will be more extra deaths from other diseases being neglected than from covid itself. Many more malaria, HIV, and tuberculosis deaths. The increase in starvation deaths worldwide will also single handedly outnumber covid deaths. There will be many preventable deaths coming from things like missed cancer screenings. There have already been plenty of deaths from people being too scared to seek care because of Covid-19 and dying of a stroke or a heart attack at home.
More than 200,000 people could die because of delays in healthcare and other economic and social effects all caused by lockdown, a U.K government report has warned. The great majority of the deaths – 185,000 – are attributed to an extended wait for treatment.
Recent NHS performance statistics showed the number of patients admitted for routine operations has dropped 82 per cent in a year. Shocking data showed only 54,550 patients were admitted for treatment in May 2020 — a fraction of the 295,000 recorded in May 2019.
NHS figures show that 106,535 urgent cancer referrals were made by GPs in England in May 2020, 47 per cent down from 200,599 in May 2019. At the same time, 55,500 more people are now waiting to have key cancer tests in England's hospitals compared with the same point last year. Clearly there could be over 100,000 deaths from cancer over the next few years because of lockdowns and hospitals opening for Covid only patients.
Cancer screening and treatment was put on hold. Cancer Research UK estimated that 290,000 people missed cancer follow ups, indicating that around 20,000 current cancer sufferers, who could otherwise have accessed treatment, remain untreated or possibly unaware of their cancer.
At least 2.4 million people missed cancer screening appointment during the lockdown. As the NHS in the U.K warns that the backlog of planned treatments, including for life threatening and life limiting conditions, is likely to hit 10 million, the Lockdown regime has also seen cancer referrals drop by 45%. Some scientists have estimated this could mean an additional 35,000 excess cancer deaths in the UK.
Appointments for screenings for cancers of the cervix, colon, and breast were down between 86% and 94% in March, compared to average volumes in the three years before the first Covid-19 case was confirmed in the U.S. A survey of nine major hospitals in April 2020 showed the number of severe heart attacks being treated in U.S hospitals had dropped by nearly 40% since the lockdown in March 2020, leaving people to die at home.
Up to 12,000 people per day could die from hunger linked to the social and economic impacts of Covid-19 before the end of the year, perhaps more than will die each day from the disease. The UN has warned of famines of 'biblical proportions’ as a result of Covid-19 and the measures to contain it, projecting the number of people in crisis level hunger will rise to 270 million before the end of the year, an 82% increase since 2019.
More people could die of hunger which is driven by Covid-19 policies such as lockdowns than from the virus itself. Simply because businesses are forced to close and people cannot earn a living and also the food supply chain is disrupted.
Tuberculosis is the biggest infectious-disease killer worldwide, claiming 1.5 million lives each year.
According to one estimate, a three-month lockdown across different parts of the world and a gradual return to normal over 10 months could result in an additional 6.3 million cases of tuberculosis and 1.4 million deaths from it.
“TB is the biggest monster of them all. If we’re talking about deaths and pandemics, 10 million cases a year,” said Dr. Lucica Ditiu, who heads the Stop TB Partnership, an international consortium of 1,700 groups fighting the disease. Covid doesn’t compare yet to that toll.
Prioritizing the coronavirus over TB is “very stupid from a public health perspective,” Dr. Ditiu said. “You should actually be smart and do both.”
It’s not just that the coronavirus has diverted scientific attention from TB, H.I.V. and malaria. The lockdowns, particularly across parts of Africa, Asia and Latin America, have raised insurmountable barriers to patients who must travel to obtain diagnoses or drugs, according to interviews with more than two dozen public health officials, doctors and patients worldwide.
“Covid-19 risks derailing all our efforts and taking us back to where we were 20 years ago,” said Dr. Pedro L. Alonso, the director of the World Health Organization’s global malaria program.
Fear of the coronavirus and the shuttering of clinics have kept away many patients struggling with H.I.V., TB and malaria, while restrictions on air and sea travel have severely limited delivery of medications to the hardest-hit regions.
A six-month disruption of antiretroviral therapy may lead to more than 500,000 additional deaths from illnesses related to H.I.V., according to the W.H.O. Another model by the W.H.O. predicted that in the worst-case scenario, deaths from malaria could double to 770,000 per year.
India went into lockdown on March 24, and the government directed public hospitals to focus on Covid-19. Many hospitals shuttered outpatient services for other diseases.
The impact on TB diagnoses was immediate: The number of new cases recorded by the Indian government between March 25 and June 19 was 60,486, compared with 179,792 during the same period in 2019.
Depression is also on the rise all over the world, and also lowers quality of life as well as life expectancy, a recent CDC survey showed that 1/4th of young Americans aged 18 to 24 contemplated suicide recently. The closing of many schools and universities for a long period of time will have huge effects on children and young adults.
As of June 2020, 3 million American small businesses were closed, 40% of jobs lost during the Covid-19 lockdowns are gone for good according to a report by the University of Chicago and similar patterns can be seen in other countries. In the U.K it is predicted that 200,000 businesses will close forever and all to protect us and keep us safe, really?
Let’s be clear all of this economic devastation is not caused by a virus it is caused by the government’s response to the virus namely, lockdowns. Now times that 200,000 extra deaths predicted in the U.K by every country in the world that has locked down and it will run into millions of extra deaths because of the unnecessary lockdowns which now must be one of the most ridiculous decisions made by governments around the world for a disease that has a 99.7% survival rate. It is like burning your house down because you are trying to kill the spider in your house. As Stanford epidemiology professor John Ioannidis said in his peer reviewed study of lockdown’s ‘Lockdowns do not stop the spread of Covid-19 and cause more devastation than the virus itself’.
Governments around the world are not following the science, there is another agenda taking place here and only the blind cannot see it.
School closures – children are “granny killers”
The impact the epidemic response has had on children is one of the greatest disgraces in history. At the beginning of the COVID-19 epidemic, it was established that children mostly have a mild or asymptomatic presentation of the disease. However, decision-makers relentlessly promoted the idea that children, although they rarely get sick, are capable of infecting others. This unsupported idea was enough to order school closures and keep children away from their grandparents, as if they were potential “granny killers”. Studies show that children do not significantly transmit infection. Yet we already see the adverse effects that confinement and school closures have had on the mental health of children and adolescents. Sweden’s experience demonstrates that keeping schools open does not result in any excess morbidity or mortality in children or teachers. A recent article found that adults living in households with children actually have a lower risk of getting sick with COVID-19 than adults who live in households without children.
Following article is by Professor Michel Chossudovsky
“Free Speech is suppressed. The lockdown narrative is supported by media disinformation, online censorship, social engineering and the fear campaign. Medical doctors who question the official narrative are threatened. They lose their jobs. Their careers are destroyed. Those who oppose the government lockdown are categorized as “anti-social psychopaths”. Peer reviewed psychological “studies” are currently being carried in several countries using sample surveys. Accept the “big Lie” and you are tagged as a “good person” with “empathy” who understands the feelings of others. Express reservations regarding, social distancing and the wearing of the face mask, and you will be tagged (according to “scientific opinion”) as a “callous and deceitful psychopath”. In colleges and universities, the teaching staff is pressured to conform and endorse the official covid narrative. Questioning the legitimacy of the lockdown in online “classrooms” could lead to dismissal. Several medical doctors who oppose the COVID consensus or the vaccine have been arrested. In December, “Jean-Bernard Fourtillan, a retired university professor known for his opposition to the COVID-19 vaccine was arrested “by law enforcement officers under military command, and forcibly placed in solitary confinement at the psychiatric hospital of Uzes. Fourtillan is known as “longtime critic of vaccines that use dangerous adjuvants”. Google and Twitter are marketing the Big Lie. The opinions of prominent scientists who question the lockdown, the face-mask or social distancing are “taken down” by Google. YouTube doesn’t allow content that spreads medical misinformation that contradicts the World Health Organization (WHO) or local health authority’s medical information about COVID-19, including on methods to prevent, treat or diagnose COVID-19, and means of transmission of COVID-19.” They call it “fact checking”, without acknowledging that both the WHO and local health authorities contradict their own data and concepts. Similarly, Twitter has confirmed that “it will remove all posts that suggest there are ‘adverse impacts or effects of receiving vaccinations” … Twitter will: “memory-hole any posts that “invoke a deliberate conspiracy” or “advance harmful, false, or misleading narratives’ about vaccines. Confirmed by prominent scientists as well as by official public health bodies including the World Health Organization (WHO) and the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Covid-19 is a public health concern but it is NOT a dangerous virus. The COVID-19 crisis is marked by a public health “emergency” under WHO auspices which is being used as a pretext and a justification to trigger a worldwide process of economic, social and political restructuring. The tendency is towards the imposition of a totalitarian State. Social engineering is being applied. Governments are pressured into extending the lockdown, despite its devastating economic and social consequences. There is no scientific basis for implementing the closing down of the global economy as a means to resolving a public health crisis. Both the media and the governments are involved in spreading disinformation. The fear campaign has no scientific basis. Your governments are LYING. In fact they are lying to themselves. - Professor Michel Chossudovsky - award-winning author, Professor of Economics (emeritus) at the University of Ottawa, Founder and Director of the Centre for Research on Globalization (CRG), Montreal, Editor of Global Research.

“This year the suffering of humanity is much, MUCH worse than last year because of our world’s response to one virus. COVID-19. Billions of nameless, faceless, countless, people are suffering, starving and dying due to the world’s response to this virus and these numbers far exceed those sickened or dying of COVID-19. Is it worth it? Should we keep going on this path when we can see the utter destruction of human lives that is happening all around us? How could anyone even ask such questions? There is no comparison here. None. We have to find a different path. I am deeply opposed to the world’s course of action and beg you to consider your stance on this humanitarian crisis. Would you rather simply say nothing, comply with orders and perpetuate this travesty in order to protect yourself when you are at very low risk of dying, as most people are, than stand up and say, “Enough! This is enough! Too many people have died and are suffering needlessly due to our world’s response to a virus that is killing a tiny, tiny percentage of those infected. Enough! There MUST be a better way!” And there is…” - Kerry Gorton Evans – (Pandemics - Data & Analytics) - https://www.pandata.org/would-you-jump/
Two Leading Swedish Health Experts Explain That COVID Lockdowns Have Killed Millions of People
Professor Anna-Mia Ekström and Professor Stefan Swartling Peterson have gone through the data from UNICEF and UNAIDS, and came to the conclusion that least as many people have died as a result of the restrictions to fight covid as have died of covid.
