Five key facts are being ignored by those calling for continuing the near-total lockdown.
Fact 1: The overwhelming majority of people do not have any significant risk of dying from COVID-19.
Fact 2: Protecting older, at-risk people eliminates hospital overcrowding.
Fact 3: Vital population immunity is prevented by total isolation policies, prolonging the problem.
Fact 4: People are dying because other medical care is not getting done due to hypothetical projections.
Fact 5: We have a clearly defined population at risk who can be protected with targeted measures.
The eurozone economy suffered the steepest falls in business activity and employment ever recorded during April as a result of measures taken to contain the COVID-19 outbreak, according to provisional PMI® survey data. The month as saw unprecedented damage to the eurozone economy from lockdown measures coupled with slumping global demand and shortages of both staff and inputs.
- “A third [of deaths in the week up to 10 April] were linked to coronavirus, but deaths from other causes also increased, suggesting the lockdown may be having an indirect impact on health.”
- “On Tuesday [21 April] 823 new deaths were announced, but most of these happened in the previous days and weeks. Some even date back to March.”
- “But the ONS also said deaths from other causes rose too.”
- “The number of deaths from flu and pneumonia…is three times higher than the total number of coronavirus deaths this year.”
- COVID-19 is very infectious but causes no symptoms in most people.
- New York disaster is due to use of ventilators.
- 80% of pregnant women were COVID-19 positive but not a single baby died due to COVID-19.
- Do what we always do: isolate the frail and sick but don’t isolate the young and healthy.
- Getting herd immunity is how we’ve solved the problem in the past.
- Social distancing is destroying millions of lives and killing 100 people for every one it saves.

United Nations warned the coronavirus could trigger famines around the world
Worldwide freeze on commerce has sent shock waves through financial markets
World Food Programme director warned millions could be forced into starvation
Those suffering acute hunger predicted to nearly double to 265 million this year
Overall, however, the fact that good-sized regions from Utah to Sweden to much of East Asia have avoided harsh lockdowns without being overrun by Covid-19 is notable….And empirical analyses of national and regional response strategies…do not necessarily find that costly lockdowns work better against the virus than social distancing.
Forum posts apparently show NHS workers and patients discussing the empty UK hospitals. Screenshot below.
The lockdown measures imposed by the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) Regulations are some of the most extreme restrictions on fundamental freedoms imposed in the modern era. They are a disproportionate interference with the rights and freedoms protected by the European Convention on Human Rights and therefore unlawful.
This is an executive summary of a more in-depth article which is available from the link below. Inevitably, the summary simplifies the detailed arguments and considerations.

Currently, an estimated 2.6 billion people – one-third of the world’s population – is living under some kind of lockdown or quarantine. This is arguably the largest psychological experiment ever conducted.
Unfortunately, we already have a good idea of its results
In short, and perhaps unsurprisingly, people who are quarantined are very likely to develop a wide range of symptoms of psychological stress and disorder, including low mood, insomnia, stress, anxiety, anger, irritability, emotional exhaustion, depression and post-traumatic stress symptoms. Low mood and irritability specifically stand out as being very common, the study notes.
Oxford University Professor Carl Heneghan: UK’s outbreak peaked in March before lockdown but ministers had ‘lost sight’ of the scientific evidence and panicked.

There needs to be a more effective and sustainable strategy to manage Covid-19 than the current economically ruinous policy, argue vets Dick Sibley and Joe Brownlie.
The penny is now starting to drop, as the markets begin to respond negatively to leading Western governments’ risky self-imposed economic Lockdown policies in their reactionary attempt to contain the spread coronavirus crisis. The economic apocalypse which experts were warning about, but which government have been actively ignoring, is beginning to arrive.
