There is a literature, with many peer-reviewed papers, now acknowledging that the Covid lockdowns, in epidemiological public health terms, were a failure, with more people dying from the lockdowns than from SARS-CoV-2. For example, the most recent study showing this, and there have been cross benefit analyses done for many countries, including Australia and Canada, is by the US National Bureau of Economic Research. It found for the US, that the lockdowns produced a 26 percent rise in excess deaths among adults of a working age, even though the majority of Covid deaths, across the world, was among the elderly, especially those older than the age of average life expectancy. But, while Covid “overwhelmingly afflict senior citizens, absolute numbers of non-Covid excess deaths are similar for each of the 18-44, 45-64, and over-65 age groups.” “[T]here were more than 170,000 non-COVID excess deaths in the U.S. through 2020 and 2021, the researchers concluded. But they believe the actual number is closer to 200,000, taking into account as estimated 72,000 "unmeasured Covid deaths.’
This information was readily available to our political class, yet still they plunged into crazed lockdowns. It therefore cannot be a public health response, for this would be insane; it must then be a purely political move to achieve an agenda, and the one suggesting itself, is the well-discussed Great Reset of the World Economic Forum.
