(Liberty Bell) – We all knew that a resurgence of the coronavirus come fall was inevitable. Power-hungry state overlords have wasted no time ramping up COVID restrictions and issuing a new round of lockdowns all over the country.
While we are supposed to believe that lockdowns “save lives” and that we all must “sacrifice” for the most vulnerable among us, the truth is, lockdowns cause much more harm than good.
The first round of lockdowns last spring devastated the booming US economy, sent poverty and unemployment rates through the roof, and caused a mental health crisis that has thus far gone completely without acknowledgement.
This is what lockdowns actually do and a new study has highlighted one thing lockdowns don’t appear to do and that is actually save lives.
A new study published by Frontiers in Public Health has revealed that lockdowns have not been shown to correlate with lower death rates.
The study had researchers analyzing data from 160 countries over the first 8 months of the coronavirus ordeal, testing several factors including demographics, public health, economy, politics, and environment, to determine what their relationship to COVID-19 mortality rates were.
“Stringency of the measures settled to fight pandemia, including lockdown, did not appear to be linked with death rate,” the researchers said.
The researchers were able to conclude that the criteria most associated with high death rate was life expectancy and to some degree certain demographic regions.
In other words, what determines COVID mortality is something that is simply beyond our control. The researchers also concluded that ways to fight higher death rates are not lockdowns but “resilience through better physical fitness and immunity.”
Researchers have found what many of us have known all along. The healthier one is and the better physical condition they are in is a major determinant of whether they are high-risk of dying from COVID-19 or not. That is why children and young adults are not dying for the virus.
That’s exactly why the same groups of people are high-risk as are high-risk with other viruses like influenza.
Faced with this new information that supports what many of us, including President Trump, have known for a long time, it’s truly baffling how state governors are still moving forward with even stricter lockdowns and getting away with it.
It’s now clear that the economic devastation, increasing mental health deterioration, and surge of welfare and unemployment dependency have all just been part of some sick political ploy to hurt President Trump.
The Democrats have been using the virus as a political weapon since it hit our shores.
This new study should really surprise no one. Lockdowns were deemed ineffective months ago after researchers found there is “little correlation between the severity of a nation’s restrictions and whether it managed to curb excess fatalities.”
Take a look at Sweden, for example, where lockdowns were never mandated. Their death rate has steadily dropped throughout 2020. This is likely because as the virus moves through a population people build tolerance to it. Not only that but as the pandemic has raged on, medical professionals have become better equipped in treating it.
Famed economist Milton Friedman once warned, “One of the great mistakes is to judge policies and programs by their intentions rather than their results.” Democrats think lockdowns should save lives and therefore they are good. This is a fallacy and the left likely knows it.
The reality is that they have been purposefully using the virus as a political weapon to destroy the United States during the most critical election year in American history.
Lockdowns are far more destructive than the actual virus itself. It’s time to end this charade.
