Herland Report: Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, a prominent Stanford Medical School professor and health economist recently said in an interview that lockdowns are the “single worst public health mistake in a hundred years. The harm to people is catastrophic.”
“I stand behind my comment that the lockdowns are the single worst public health mistake in the last 100 years,” Jay Bhattacharya later said to Newsweek.
“We will be counting the catastrophic health and psychological harms, imposed on nearly every poor person on the face of the earth, for a generation.”
Bhattacharya is the co-author of the Great Barrington Declaration, which calls for the end of lockdowns, stating that the measures:
“…have not served to control the epidemic in the places where they have been most vigorously imposed. In the U.S., they have – at best – protected the ‘non-essential’ class from COVID, while exposing the essential working class to the disease.”
The Great Barrington petition states that older people with several other underlying illnesses have a much higher risk of dying by Covid-19.
It is signed by 13,000 medical and public health scientists, more than 41,000 medical practitioners and at least 754,399 “concerned citizens.”
In a Senate hearing in December, Jay Bhattacharya stated that: “For older people, COVID-19 is a deadly disease that should be met with overwhelming resources aimed at protecting them wherever they are, whether in nursing homes, at their own home, in the workplace, or multi-generational homes,” he said.
“They should be prioritized for vaccines, and we should be actively seeking widely available and effective treatments.”

But for “the non-vulnerable, who face far greater harm from the lockdowns than they do from COVID-19 infection risk, the lockdowns should be lifted and – for those who so decide – normal life resumed.”
The leading German microbiologist, Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi stated back in April, 2020 that shutdowns are grotesquely dangerous and a collective suicide. Since his interview first aired on YouTube, lockdowns have been in place for a year.
That the Western government shut downs is a completely wrong and extremely dangerous response to the Covid-19 virus. This article was first published on this site April 3rd, 2020.
Self-isolating the whole population is “grotesque, absurd and very dangerous. All these measures are leading to self-destruction and collective suicide caused by fear.”
The virus expert who is one of the most cited research scientists in German history asserts that self-isolating the whole population is “grotesque, absurd and very dangerous”.
All these measures are leading to self-destruction and collective suicide caused by fear.
“This is the incredible tragedy, because all these adopted measures are actually senseless and meaningless.”
“The life expectancy of millions is now being shortened because of this. The horrifying impact on world economy threatens the existence of countless people.”
“The consequences on medical care are profound. Already services to patients who are in need are reduced, operations cancelled, medical practices empty, hospital personnel dwindling. All this will impact profoundly on our whole society.”
Dr Sucharit Bhakdi is a specialist in microbiology. He was a professor at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz and head of the Institute for Medical Microbiology and Hygiene and one of the most cited research scientists in German history.
He said: “I can only say: All these measures are leading to self-destruction and collective suicide caused by fear.”
