Jay Bhattacharya, Stanford Doctor, Calls Lockdowns the ‘Biggest Public Health Mistake We’ve Ever Made’
Bhattacharya, who made the comments during an interview with the Daily Clout, co-authored the Great Barrington Declaration, a petition that calls for the end of COVID-19 lockdowns, claiming that they are «producing devastating effects on short and long-term public health». As of Monday, the Great Barrington Declaration has received signatures from over 13,000 medical and public health scientists, more than 41,000 medical practitioners and at least 754,399 «concerned citizens». During the interview last month, Bhattacharya said that the declaration comes from «two basic facts». «The other idea is that the lockdowns themselves impose great harm on people.
Lockdowns are not a natural normal way to live».
We will be counting the catastrophic health and psychological harms, imposed on nearly every poor person on the face of the earth, for a generation. In the US, they have — at best — protected the «non-essential» class from COVID, while exposing the essential working class to the disease. The lockdowns are trickle down epidemiology.
