The “experts” at WHO are now against lockdowns

In April, I did a blog post entitled, “When you prepare for something that is not coming, you just may destroy yourself.”

Many of us “non-experts” questioned the rationale for shutting down economies in order to “flatten the curve” of a virus.

Social media platforms silenced many who also questioned the rationale of lockdowns. Remember this?

During the past seven months, we’ve seen the consequences of lockdowns: Increase in suicides, economic devastation, increase in divorces, job losses, businesses closing, students falling behind in education, and so on.

There are several demorat-run states that STILL have some form of lockdowns in place (Washington, California, Illinois, New York, etc.). Wonder if they’ll change their tunes now that the “experts” at WHO are warning AGAINST lockdowns?

The NY Post reports that The World Health Organization has warned leaders against relying on COVID-19 lockdowns to tackle outbreaks — after previously saying countries should be careful how quickly they re-open.

Apparently these lockdowns should only be treated as a last resort.”

Too little, too late doctor!

More from the story:

“We in the World Health Organization do not advocate lockdowns as the primary means of control of this virus,” Dr. David Nabarro said.

“The only time we believe a lockdown is justified is to buy you time to reorganize, regroup, rebalance your resources, protect your health workers who are exhausted, but by and large, we’d rather not do it.”

Nabarro said that there’s significant harm caused by tight restrictions, particularly on the global economy. “Lockdowns just have one consequence that you must never ever belittle, and that is making poor people an awful lot poorer,” he said.

He added that lockdowns have severely impacted countries that rely on tourism. “Just look at what’s happened to the tourism industry in the Caribbean, for example, or in the Pacific because people aren’t taking their holidays,” Nabarro told the outlet.

“Look what’s happened to smallholder farmers all over the world. Look what’s happening to poverty levels. It seems that we may well have a doubling of world poverty by next year. We may well have at least a doubling of child malnutrition.”

I wonder if the demorat governors will take the advice of this good doctor and fully re-open their states? I have a feeling that decision won’t be made until November 4.

This has been the greatest psyop perpetrated against the world population in the history of the planet. Nothing less than life imprisonment, and for some, death, should be applied to those who have committed crimes against humanity. And, we know who they are, both individuals and organizations and the WHO is just one.

greenworxx . . . Thank you for putting into words just what the majority of the rest of us were thinking. There certainly should be ramifications relative to those who have committed crimes against humanity . . . and the Chinese should have to pay a heavy financial price for their deliberate release of this virus.

Jen . . . I agree with you. Bill Gates is a smarmy character who wants to be the leader of the One World Government.

Unbelievable . . . now that our economy is in tatters, the supposed “experts” do a turnaround.

So what will the WHO recommend in the place of lockdowns? Because you know it will be something, and my guess is that something will be vaccines.

Not just WHO. Thousands of scientists signed the Barrington Declaration against lockdown.
