Why Lockdowns Are The Wrong Policy

Swedish Expert – Professor Johan Giesecke
Professor Johan Giesecke, one of the world’s most senior epidemiologists, advisor to the Swedish Government (he hired Anders Tegnell who is currently directing Swedish strategy), the first Chief Scientist of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, and an advisor to the director general of the WHO, lays out with typically Swedish bluntness why he thinks: 
UK policy on lockdown and other European countries are not evidence-based
The correct policy is to protect the old and the frail onlyThis will eventually lead to herd immunity as a “by-product”.
  • The flattening of the curve is due to the most vulnerable dying first as much as the lockdown

This 8 minute extract is from the longer version (…).

Johan Giesecke says that this conversation (about criticisms of the Swedish model) should happen one year from now.  Other countries are merely dodging the virus. Please see:

They can’t escape it for ever. Johan Giesecke has three criticisms of Western scientists: 

  • they are not taking an evidence-based approach 
  • Neil Ferguson’s model is terrible + not even peer reviewed 
  • mortality from the virus is much, much lower than 2%

Johan believes that in the end deaths in most options will be very similar but the damage done to societies by lockdowns would be in some cases irreversible. See for a group in India’s evidence-based and risk-based approach that is consistent also with liberty and human rights.
