A leading scientist has told The Telegraph that lockdowns are the biggest public health mistake in history. Jay Bhattacharya is a professor of medicine at Stanford University and a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research.

Speaking to The Telegraph’s Planet Normal podcast, Professor Bhattacharya said:

“I do think that future historians will look back on this and say this was the single biggest public health mistake, possibly of all history in terms of the scope of the harm that it’s caused.”

Lockdown doesn't work. It only lead to more infections.

So what works?

I dont see how it leads to more infections.

IMO, it does work. But like what the professor is saying, i am questioning the long term collateral damage of such a policy.

He is saying it is causing massive collateral damage. Psychologically and economically.

It may be better to let people die if the cost of lockdown is greater.

It's a bio weapon design to reset mankind.

If lockdown, economy suffer, people tiao lao. If don't lockdown, people suffer from infection or die.
Either way also tio checkmate. There is no way to escape.

The best any Gov can do is to try to contain the spread as much as possible while preserving the economy and livelihood of its citizens.

It's an acid test on the capability of Governments on a global scale.
