Peer-reviewed study shows ’no significant benefit’ of lockdowns on covid cases

Published in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation, the study compared 10 countries with different levels of lockdowns. The study’s model showed that there was ’no clear, significant beneficial effect of more restrictive measures on case growth;’ however, researchers also acknowledged that the study had limitations, and noted that ’cross-country comparisons are difficult.’

Ah of course! Now Biden can save us from these terrible racist Trump lockdowns that destroyed minority businesses! We should impeach Trump a third time for subverting the constitution and using unproven authoritarian measures to lockdown the country which damaged minorities at a higher rate. /s

Funny thing is, much like cloth masks, the benefits are impossible to show and negative health effects are known and obvious. Lockdowns prevent people from producing adequate amounts of vitamin d and reduce the viral flora we are exposed to that are necessary for a strong immune system. Cloth masks we know are physically incapable of filtering virus aerosols and also have been proven to increase your chances of respiratory infection by 18%. Why do we even listen to any "expert" that is advocating for these measures? Why do we follow directions that are known to cause us to get sick and keep us sick? Our "experts" really dropped the ball hard on this one with millions of deaths on their hands. Estimates put the number of undiagnosed cancer cases higher than covid death totals alone. Add in the increased suicides, loss of economy, increased spousal and child abuse and what they did was sentence a large swath of us to death or torture. Unbelievable

Yup. Liberals look dumber than normal right now.

Called it. The lockdowns weren't worth the economic devastation that they wrought. It would have been more effective to just lockdown the elderly and people asthma and insist that everyone wear masks. When all is said and done it wouldn't surprise me if we find out that the lockdowns likely killed more people than they saved.

"However, the researchers also acknowledged that the study had limitations, and noted that "cross-country comparisons are difficult," since nations may have different rules, cultures, and relationships between their government and citizenry" So, basically our research is crap

Lockdowns that people were free to ignore, lockdowns that didn't include super spreader trump rallies or weekly spreader events at evangelical churches, lockdowns that GOP politicians kept encouraging to fail.

Maybe because half the peoplewho had covid weren’t considering lockdown.. funny how this virus gives people the urge to travel.

Yet the UK is rushing headlong into ever stricter lock downs (that are not enforced on the wealthy or the immigrant), hell bent on proving it can work.

TBH we never were in “full lockdown”, and i don’t think we could be. We still need to get groceries at a store for example, there’s no way we could handle the logistics of anything else. But hindsight is 20/20

Yes, interesting if it wasn't that the leader researcher of the project was a guy who promoted herd immunity. Another case of the a group of idiots with Ph.Ds pretending to know the truth, Sorry for the harshness but I cannot retain myself, their research is the only one to get to those conclusions and is contradicted by the experience of countries as Italy or Germany themselves. When Lockdowns have been implemented correctly, they have succeeded.

This looks like a junk study by a scientist with a history of pushing herd immunity misinformation and funded by big business. I've seen tons of studies that found the opposite to this one so it's interesting it passed peer review. It's probably a dodgey mathematical model or dishonest reporting of the studies findings but I can't find it covered by the science sites yet, when I do I'll post it below.

Lockdowns aren't even being followed by a majority of people so how exactly do you think the data is accurate? IF people didn't go out walking their husbands as dogs or hitting up the beach maybe we could see some actual results, but no, people care more about their freedom to spit on each other cause they're ignorant af about science literacy than keeping home for a few weeks all together and watching the cases drop to zero.

No shit, at this point, anyone who believes the lockdowns are helping are just being willfully ignorant. There's nothing you can do to help those people, they are lost!

But the guy who wrote it was against lockdowns in the first place and thought we should let about 1/3 of the population die to achieve herd immunity so forgive me if I'm skeptical.

That why I do not trust Mainstream Media .

The governments don't care about evidence, this has nothing to do with a virus.

One study that they did not even bother reading against hundreds of studies done by the best medical minds, irregardless of results we have experienced here as well as basic common sense and the trumpets become believers in ‘science’. Time for you all to take your insanity somewhere else, Russia maybe.
