Dr. Scott W. Atlas, Senior Fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution: Five Key Facts Being Ignored about Lockdowns
From Big League Politics:
According to a recent Stanford University antibody study, the fatality rate of the infected is likely 0.1 to 0.2 percent. These numbers are far lower than past World Health Organization estimates that were 20 to 30 times higher and that spurred draconian lockdowns.
Fact 3: Vital population immunity is prevented by total isolation policies, prolonging the problem.
“Atlas noted that “infection itself allows people to generate an immune response — antibodies — so that the infection is controlled throughout the population by ‘herd immunity.’”
Atlas highlighted that medical care is not necessary for a large portion of the population who have caught the virus:
In this virus, we know that medical care is not even necessary for the vast majority of people who are infected. It is so mild that half of infected people are asymptomatic, shown in early data from the Diamond Princess ship, and then in Iceland and Italy. That has been falsely portrayed as a problem requiring mass isolation.
