We could abandon lockdown policies immediately and revert to the established pandemic plans that were in place which referred to sound evidence collected over many years. Global Influenza Programme: Pandemic Mitigation Plan (October 2019). I continue to hope that soon we will, before freedom becomes accepted as a tightly managed privilege which only the most compliant to corporate interests will have access to.
This would require a few changes, including:
- Widely publicise that Covid-19 is not a novel virus, as we were initially told and which has never been publicly corrected (as far as I am aware). Most of us have pre-existing immunity from exposure to the four circulating common cold Human Coronaviruses (as well as SARS and MERS cross-immunity).
- Widely publicise the median Infection Fatality Rate – 0.23% – to reduce the level of fear across the globe, including amongst young people whose risk is even lower at 0.05%.
- Immediate review of our leading public health agencies and the political/corporate interests influencing them. WHO and CDC for example, have used social media and website pages to promote specific points of view, almost always fuelling fear, whilst then publishing reviews in scientific literature which the general public do not easily access, outlining the lack of evidence for the views they promote. We need to know what forces are behind this behaviour.
- Set in place measures to protect the vulnerable, as promoted by the great many public health specialists calling for this since the beginning.
Future generations deserve to inherit modern, free democratic societies with properly functioning economies and social systems. Lockdown and medical totalitarianism is destroying their chances.
