Dr. David Nabarro,the UK special envoy to the World Health Organization joined in condemning mass coronavirus lockdowns as a “ghastly global catastrophe”.
The most compassionate--- is to allow those who are at minimal risk of death to live their lives normally--- while better protecting those who are at highest risk. We call this Focused Protection.
---Current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and long-term public health. The results--- worsening cardiovascular disease outcomes, fewer cancer screenings and deteriorating mental health – leading to greater excess mortality in years to come---
“Schools and universities should be open for in-person teaching. ---Young low-risk adults should work normally, rather than from home. Restaurants and other businesses should open. Arts, music, sport and other cultural activities should resume.”
