It was all for nothing: No evidence COVID-19 lockdown actually works

Below are excerpts from Sherelle Jacobs, “The lack of evidence lockdowns actually worked is a world scandal,” The Telegraph, May 28, 2020. I supplied the bold and color emphasis:

We have detonated the global economy to pursue a lockdown experiment that may not have worked, according to the latest evidence. This diabolical revelation should be a world scandal….

The broadcast media is more interested in scalping lockdown flouters than questioning whether shutdowns have served any useful purpose. World-class studies that suggest lockdown did not alter the pandemic’s course are mysteriously vanishing into internet obscurity on first contact with the official narrative. Our greatest minds have resorted to unpicking the issue on offbeat YouTube webinars. No global NGO or lockdown country has launched an investigation into their impact.

This is a scandal so overwhelming that there is only one good place to start: the evidence as it stands…. [I]n Britain, infections may have peaked a week before lockdown, according to Prof Carl Heneghan of Oxford University, with daily deaths in hospitals plateauing a fortnight after it was introduced. We are not an anomaly: peak dates across Europe also seem to confound the official theory.

Don’t just take my word for it. A University of the East Anglia study posits that Europe’s “stay-at-home policies” were not effective. A JP Morgan investigation suggests the virus “likely has its own dynamics” which are “unrelated to often inconsistent lockdown measures”. But such insights have failed to induce even the vaguest quiver of serious mainstream debate.

Nobel prize-winning bio-physicist Michael Levitt has fared little better, despite his valiant one-man effort to expose the inconvenient truth about Covid numbers. He has claimed, sensationally, that the modelling that justified lockdown made the fatally incorrect assumption that Covid-19’s spread is continuously exponential. In fact, his research has found an uncanny pattern across numerous countries whereby the virus grows exponentially for two weeks, before slowing seemingly irrespective of lockdown and social distancing measures.

In a more sensible world, such findings might stir thoughtful debate about whether Covid was burning out naturally before lockdowns began. It might also prompt a global effort to put other pieces of the puzzle together – for example, establishing whether there is a correlation between countries with high death rates and countries that failed to protect care homes. (They make up half of fatalities in Belgium, which has suffered the worst Covid death toll per capita).

But as the holes in Project Lockdown multiply, its advocates flap incoherently to keep their theory afloat…where the goal of lockdown lurches from “flattening the curve” to staving off a “second wave” – to, apparently, averting the first wave’s “second peak”….

it will be opened

Virtue signaling queen: Libtard Chrissy Teigen pledges $100k to bail out rioters

Many businesses in Minneapolis were already facing hardships due to the Wuhan virus shut down. After the protestors, rioters and looters had their fun, many are going to be permanently shut down due to the fires and destruction in that city.

So if you are a TDS-infected libtard, what’s the best way you can help? Bail out the rioters.

But that’s liberal logic for ‘ya. It’s not designed to make sense.

Chris Cuomo’s viewership has plunged by HALF since he contracted Wuhan virus

Imagine my distress.

From Daily Mail: CNN host Chris Cuomo’s ratings have plunged 49 percent in the two months since he announced he’d contracted coronavirus, data from Nielsen Media Research shows.

Since the week of March 30, Cuomo has dropped from first in his 9pm time slot among cable news hosts to bottom of the barrel, last week averaging just 440,000 daily viewers in the age demographic prized by advertisers.

Cuomo’s stunning ratings nosedive came after interviews with his brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, in lighthearted segments that were widely panned as ratings stunts amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Though all cable news saw something of a drop-off in viewership in May, as viewers seemingly grew weary of the pandemic coverage, Chris Cuomo’s decline was sharper than his time slot competitors, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Fox News’ Sean Hannity.

A spokesperson for Chris Cuomo declined to comment when reached by DailyMail.com.

However, a source close to the anchor pointed out that cable news ratings rise and fall dramatically depending on what’s happening in the news cycle. The person argued that weekly averages don’t provide an accurate picture of viewership.

Chris Cuomo’s ratings peak came the week of March 30 when he announced that he had tested positive for coronavirus and was isolating in his basement, beating out Maddow and Hannity with 862,000 daily viewers in the 25-54 age demographic.

Since then, his ratings have dropped 49 percent in the demo and 35 percent overall, while Maddow is down 17 percent in the demo and 7 percent overall. Hannity has dropped 38 percent in the demo and 12 percent overall.

Last week, Chris Cuomo dropped below Maddow in the demo for the first time since March 2. Maddow had 498,000 daily average viewers in the demo and Chris Cuomo had 355,000. Hannity has beaten Chris Cuomo since the week of April 6. Last week, Hannity garnered 4.7 total viewers and 589,000 in the 25-54 demographic.

Just like that, social distancing is over

Back in March our country and economy was shut down due to China’s Wuhan virus. We were told to stay at home – unless you were deemed essential – and practice social distancing in order to save lives.

Because of this, unemployment rose dramatically as did crime and suicides. Millions of people isolated and unemployed. And stressed.

Then the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis occurred. Stay at home orders were completely ignored throughout the country as people took to the streets to protest and riot.

Just like that, social distancing was done. After everything that was sacrificed by students, families and business owners to try to limit the spread of the Wuhan virus, social distancing is over.

Makes you wonder if the reaction to the Wuhan virus was really worth all of our efforts and economic sacrifices.

You might be able to get a haircut in Chiraq on Friday!

Yet if you are Mayor Lori Lightfoot, that was NEVER a problem for you in the first place.

Good news, people of Chiraq – you will be allowed to get a haircut! With RULES, of course. Rules that DON’T apply to your good mayor.

MyFoxChicago reports that this Friday barbershops will have very specific requirements to reopen and cut your hair. But they can’t cut all of your hair. From the story:

“In Chicago specifically, the industry will open sometime in early June and you cannot get any services that require removing your mask.

When they do open, coronavirus safety measures will change the way services are provided.

“Masks are required. For barbers, for example, they won’t be able to cut the mustache or facial hair if it requires taking the mask off,” Bradford said. “I won’t be able to cut it. I have to follow the guidelines and I don’t want any issues.”

The city of Chicago has put up Phase 3 guidelines on their website. In some cases, the recommendations will hit beauty professionals financially.

“Makeup artists won’t be able to do an entire face of makeup. They can do lashes,” Bradford said.”

Read the whole story here.

I guess doing only eyelashes keeps you much safer than doing an entire face of makeup. Probably much safer than getting a haircut during a stay at home order when you pose with your hair stylist without social distancing.
