Peer Reviewed Study Shows COVID Lockdowns Have No Benefits Compared to Voluntary Measures

By Paul Joseph Watson | Summit News | January 15, 2021

A new peer reviewed study by Stanford researchers has found that mandatory lockdowns do not provide more benefits to stopping the spread of COVID-19 than voluntary measures such as social distancing.

The study compared countries that had imposed mandatory lockdowns, such as England, France, Germany, Iran, Italy, Netherlands, Spain and the U.S., to those that had relied on the public to follow voluntary measures, such as Sweden and South Korea.

The researchers subtracted “the sum of non-pharmaceutical intervention (NPI) effects and epidemic dynamics in countries that did not enact more restrictive non-pharmaceutical interventions (mrNPIs) from the sum of NPI effects and epidemic dynamics in countries that did.”

After analyzing the data, the researchers found “no clear, significant beneficial effect of [more restrictive measures] on case growth in any country.”

The authors added that they “do not question the role of all public health interventions,” but insisted that stay at home orders and business closures had no additional impacting on lowering the spread of the virus.

The study adds to the weight of evidence that clearly indicates lockdowns are totally pointless and only create further misery and death.

According to Professor Philip Thomas of Bristol University, the UK lockdown will end up costing 500,000 lives due to the health impact of the economic recession it will cause.

Untold numbers of people will also die from having their urgent treatments delayed as well as avoiding hospitals.

According to research published by Imperial College London and Johns Hopkins University, around 1.4 million people globally will also die from untreated TB infections.

Last September, Germany’s Minister of Economic Cooperation and Development, Gerd Muller, warned that lockdown measures throughout the globe will end up killing more people than the coronavirus itself.

  1. i love your website and I thank you for the support you appear to give to Palestine and its 100 year suffering under Jewish terrorism, occupation and control
    I also love most of your articles which I share and send out in my news missives.

    But I am somewhat perturbed at you posting articles by Paul Joseph Watson who is a COVERT Zionist Jew and who used to share the same platform with that other Zionist Lunatic and loud mouth Druggie Alex Jones.

    Watson is not to be trusted and is not on the side of real truthseekers as he pretends to be on our side when in reality he is an infiltrator and writes such articles like this one and the one on Bill Gates buying up land in order to be accepted by us and give him legitimacy which is something I will never do or give. Years ago he communicated with me and he IS a Jew pretending he opposes Israel which today is not true at all

    Real truth tellers on Alternative platforms dont need to give a platform to covert Zionists like Watson or that other phony Leftie Jew Noam Chomsky [who once openly declared on an Israeli Media show that he supported Israel 100% despite him ‘criticizing it ]and Bernie Sanders [who is a dual national] They have access to enough Media outlets many of which are denied to the Gentile Truthseekers who they are more than happy to use as platforms to spew their propaganda ‘expertise’ analyses
    Watson is NOT Stephen Lendman or Gilad Atzmon who ‘appear to be genuinely Anti Zionist and very critical of the Israeli Entity and Jewish Power, despite their own Jewish roots

    Don’t such Jews/Zionists have enough exposure that you allow his articles a platform here
    That man is a fraud just like Alex Jones who i warned people about 17 years ago who now openly declares his love and support for Israel like all the other Cronies that were on prisonplanet and now Infowars.
    I BOYCOTT all of Watson’s articles and will never forward them on as I don’t approve of people like him lying to us all about his real political stance.

    • Many valid points there.

      I don’t actually “trust” anyone.

      Sadly, many issues are presently so severely defended that few are willing to take them on.

      Summit News is currently addressing issues that most choose to avoid. It would be great if there were more options. Sometimes you have to work with what’s available.

      When this was posted it was between Summit or Epoch Times. Later it got wider reporting.

      Alex Jones et al have a huge following, and, as with some elements of the Christian community, has opposed Agenda 21. At this time this is a limited position among news outlets.
