Researchers at Johns Hopkins University have released a study showing that COVID-19 lockdown policies “have had little to no public health effects” but did instead imposed “enormous economic and social costs” on us all.

The release, entitled A Literature Review and Meta-analysis of the Effects of Lockdowns on COVID-19 Mortality, explained that the absurd lockdowns only reduced COVID mortality rates by a tiny 0.2 percent

“We find no evidence that lockdowns, school closures, border closures, and limiting gatherings have had a noticeable effect on COVID-19 mortality,” wrote the study’s authors, Jonas Herby, Lars Jonung, and Steve H. Hanke.

But even worse, the authors found that the lockdowns had “devastating effects” on the economic and social well-being of the American public.

The “lockdowns have had little to no public health effects, they have imposed enormous economic and social costs where they have been adopted. In consequence, lockdown policies are ill-founded and should be rejected as a pandemic policy instrument,” they said

“They have contributed to reducing economic activity, raising unemployment, reducing schooling, causing political unrest, contributing to domestic violence, and undermining liberal democracy,” the report added.

Once again, we see that these lockdowns were more about controlling us all than about health.

Now the real science is proving it.
