Only six weeks after going live, the Great Barrington Declaration has earned about 700,000 signatures from scientists, doctors, and regular citizens across the world.
The webpage of the declaration states, “As infectious disease epidemiologists and public health scientists we have grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies, and recommend an approach we call Focused Protection.”
The declaration, which first went live on October 4, is posted in 43 languages, and calls the constant lockdowns an act that causes “irreparable damage.”
Per Just The News:
“Current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and long-term public health,” the document states. “The results … include lower childhood vaccination rates, worsening cardiovascular disease outcomes, fewer cancer screenings and deteriorating mental health — leading to greater excess mortality in years to come, with the working class and younger members of society carrying the heaviest burden.”
The ideal policy, according to the signatories, is “to allow those who are at minimal risk of death to live their lives normally to build up immunity to the virus through natural infection, while better protecting those who are at highest risk.”
“Those who are not vulnerable should immediately be allowed to resume life as normal,” the document continues, arguing that “schools and universities should be open for in-person teaching” and “extracurricular activities, such as sports, should be resumed.” Work should be in-person as well, it adds, while restaurants, storefronts, art exhibits and other cultural activities should be permitted to resume normal operations.
The declaration has earned the support of hundreds of thousands of scientists, academics, doctors and citizens worldwide.
Like the myth of mask-wearing, these lockdowns do nothing whatever to “stop” the coronavirus.
