The nerve of some scientists, saying they actually want younger Americans to strip off their masks, stop social distancing, live life and go out and GET the coronavirus!
Can you believe these people? How dare they! This is nothing short of heresy! They should be stripped of any scientific and medical degrees they possess and permanently muzzled.
Instead we should continue to listen to the real “experts” like Fauci, Birx and the scores of Governors and Mayors who know much more than these quacks.
However, being the anti-establishment maverick I am, I prefer to listen to real scientists who’ve shunned any political bias for the unvarnished scientific truth.
Recently Freddie Sayers at UnHerd interviewed three eminent infectious disease epidemiologists and public health scientists, Dr Sunetra Gupta (Oxford University), Dr Jay Bhattacharya (Stanford University) and Dr. Martin Kulldorff (Harvard University), who met in Massachusetts to sign a declaration calling for a different global response to the pandemic.
The overall purpose of their declaration is attempt to influence public health policy regarding Covid-19 and that Herd Immunity must be achieved.
Unlike leftist dogma, that tries to scare the population and attempts to convince them that this herd immunity is some kind of wacky unproven strategy, the doctors explain that herd immunity is neither new or just a theory. Dr. Bhattacharya stresses that herd immunity is not a strategy but an indisputable fact of most infectious diseases. He reiterates that herd immunity is merely “a recognition of a biological fact.”
Their public health strategy is to protect those we know are vulnerable, the sick, the infirmed and the elderly. All others should resume normal life immediately – back to school, work, play, etc.
They explain that for younger people, Covid-19 is less dangerous than the flu. And of course they are correct. Many more kids, by a huge margin, die of the seasonal flu than coronavirus. And remember – that’s even with the flu shot.
Their bottom line is that lockdowns, except for the vulnerable, should cease immediately.
“Schools and universities should be open for in-person teaching. Extracurricular activities, such as sports, should be resumed. Young low-risk adults should work normally, rather than from home. Restaurants and other businesses should open. Arts, music, sport and other cultural activities should resume. People who are more at risk may participate if they wish, while society as a whole enjoys the protection conferred upon the vulnerable by those who have built up herd immunity.”
