The World Health Organization appears to be changing its tune as top officials caution against more restrictive coronavirus lockdown measures.
In a series of statements, top officials have cautioned world governments that lockdowns are not the end-all-be-all means for containing the China-born virus, and that such measures may result in more harm than good. Essentially, the WHO seems to be adopting the positions long held by President Donald Trump, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, and many others who have been excoriated by the mainstream press.
“We in the World Health Organization do not advocate lockdowns as the primary means of control of this virus,” WHO envoy Dr. David Nabarro said. “The only time we believe a lockdown is justified is to buy you time to reorganize, regroup, rebalance your resources, protect your health workers who are exhausted, but by and large, we’d rather not do it.”
Nabarro went on to highlight the dangers of freezing any and all economic activity, including making the poorest among us even poorer. Lockdown restrictions have made it impossible for low-income individuals to be able to hold a job. Even “essential” positions such as grocery store clerks have come more competitive with more candidates vying for the same job.
WHO executive director Mike Ryan supported Nabarro’s assertions in a statement on Friday.
“What we want to try and avoid, and sometimes it’s unavoidable, we accept that, but what we want to try to avoid are these massive lockdowns that are so punishing to communities, to societies and everything else,” he said.
The UN agency isn’t alone. Thousands of public health experts from the United States and Europe have also turned against the widespread lockdown measures.
“The opinion of public health experts is changing very rapidly,” Stanford University professor of medicine Jayanta Bhattacharya told the Wall Street Journal. “In March, I felt alone. [Now] I think there are a very large number of public health experts, epidemiologists, and doctors who oppose further lockdowns.”
It appears the so-called “experts” are a bit late to the party. Never before in the history of pandemics have healthy populations been forced to quarantine alongside the sick and vulnerable. The solution seems to be obvious: allow low-risk individuals to resume their lives and attain herd immunity, and continue to protect the elderly and vulnerable. It’s what we’ve always done in the face of a novel disease…
So, here’s the real question of the day: will pro-lockdown Democrats “listen to science,” as they’ve been saying for the better part of this year now? Don’t hold your breathe.
I’m hearing the word, “Defund” a lot here in America.
I think we need to refocus that sentiment in more practical places.
The lock downs are the big grab for power over middle class America. Take our jobs, our money and our living space. Render us penniless and helpless and you have won the war. Notice it hasn’t affected the elites at all nor are they showing any fear of the “virus” .
It’s been a sham since the beginning. How does Fauci keep a job? I’d like to know what if anything, he actually does for the WHO & CDC.
He’s a liar, has always been a liar.
No joke they have changed as Trump took away their money sack so change is now a try are regaining that sack. CCP isn’t a known contributor just a scammer with little bucks but huge in threats With big promises that never seem to materialize.
I don’t think that. Trump took their money 💰 sack….
This is the latest attack by the left on Donald Trump. Now that the WHO does not condone lockdowns they will accuse Trump of trying to destroy the economy. They will say that scientists (Fauchy) never told Trump he had to shut everything down to “flatten the curve”. They must think we are really stupid with no memory of what has happened. Well, we do remember what has gone on and know what ends to which they will go to destroy Trump.
It’s sick because the Democrats aren’t going by the science that they stated they go by they want to keep everybody locked down so nobody has any money plus he’s not going to sign any money to the American people or help try to save us at all she’s going to screw us and wait as long as she can that’s sick the Democrats are freaking sick people!!!!!💩
They may be freaking sick people but they are hell bent on gaining control of the Republic and we had better prepare for the showdown.
I totally agree !
De. Fauxi (misspelled on purpose) advised Trump in Jan 2020 that the KungFlu Would not have any serious impact on the American citizens. And later on Fauci forgot he made that statement, and said Trump had no “plan”. Partly correct, he had Fauci’s Plan which was to make Trump look bad.
The so called experts will say whatever benefits them. Who benefits from lockdowns? I do not know but I do know that small businesses, the American economy, parents of school age children, working American citizens, and Senior Citizens DO NOT benefit at all. The majority of American Citizens can survive the virus sent to us by China, but many may not survive the greed, power hunger, and arrogance of their elected representatives. The lack of trust in them is a shame.
You are right the more they shut us down the more they damage the country and the Democrats want to keep a shut down and close he doesn’t want to give any money she wants to keep everybody by the balls I am so sick of her somebody should get rid of her as soon as possible because she is a detriment to the country!💩
We plan to secede from the socialist traitors and let them eat their own! The South does not belong among the trash that makes up the DNC! After the war, we will be a drastically changed Country! You can’t give away free shit when you are $48T in debt, those idiots on the left just can’t grasp the fact that the DNC is manipulating them!
Well thank you for exhibiting common sense, which most people know isn’t common at all! Could you please go a step further and prove the Democratic Party along with Soros and Gates released this horrific virus?
The United States has been attacked by left wing Bilderberg ordered socialists run by an unelected George Soros, WE THE PEOPLE did not ask for this, so do not gasp when this CWII breaks out! We will not broadcast the beginning and we will not stop until every traitor is killed! War is not what we wanted, but they.brought it and we will stop at nothing to get The Peoples Country Back from the traitors!
Fauci never tells the truth.. That’s why I don’t listen to him…I take very good care of myself and only follow certain rules..I only go outside for groceries once or twice a week for groceries…
Springsteen was BORN TO RUN TO AUSTRALIA, WELL BYE!
Civic 19 the largest most deliberate hoax. In history. It was Largely used by mainstream media who love to spread terror with false reports! No one loves disaster scenarios more! Global warming! Climate change! Etc. Etc. But lying made people money and won elections! No matter how many lives it destroyed.
I can agree to that…
The communist news networks aren’t the only ones who spread lies and false disaster reports. The democrat/communists love these kinds of reports. They have always looked for ways to control the people and take our rights away. They are no better that CCP. Since the MSM is owned by the CCP, they were only too willing to print or broadcast the wild scam of disease so that the democrat/communists could force controls onto the public and say it is “for your own good”. For those of you who remember 1938 history, you remember that phrase was used to send Jews to prison camps and started the extermination.
We have been told so many lies about this virus that we don’t know what to believe anymore.
We have been told over and over again that masks and social distancing will stop the spread of the virus. We have been doing that for months now and now they tell us the virus is spreading and another wave in on it’s way.
If it is, the masks and social distancing was garbage and does not work.
I think they know they don’t work, but they love the control they have now over the people. They love acting like dictators. They don’t want it to end. It isn’t affecting them. They are sitting there, drawing their enormous salaries, plus benefits, plenty of help, plenty to eat, go where they please, do what they please and all the time telling us we can’t do that, because it will cause the virus to spread.
The only way we are going to be able to stop this crap, is to take away from them what they have taken from the American people. If we could do that, the virus would probably end overnight.
This can’t go on much longer and still have a country. Numerous things have happened that prove they were completely wrong about this virus. The rioting, looting mobs, no surge in virus cases, the Trump rallies, no spike in cases, Would have been if they were telling us the truth about what we should be doing. They know it’s a lie, and if they open everything back up and things get back to normal, most people will understand they were lying to us from the start, and they don’t want that.
Some people are talking about a civil war over this. That we don’t need. It will not be like the civil war of 1861, where it was the north against the south, this time it will be neighbor against neighbor. No one will be safe even in their own back yard. Just get rid of these crooked politicians and replace them with people with a little common sense and stop reading or listening to this fake media and it will end.
Amazing to read so many posts that show America is waking up to what is really happening to the Republic.The virus is real but it didn’t mutate, it was brewed up in a wuhan kitchen.
Lie-beral DEMONocrats…the syndicate of fake, hate, negate, denigrate, ingrate, degenerate, agitate, instigate, segregate, separate, isolate, desecrate (Bible burning), depopulate (abortions), and DOMINATE !!! All demons need to go back to HELL!
