Two Harvard Professors Argue for a “Radical” Covid Strategy

Check out this whole enlightening interview as author Nicole Aschoff interviews two Harvard Medical School professors.

Both argue that lockdowns are a terrible strategy that devastate the most vulnerable in society.

Katherine Yih is a biologist and epidemiologist at Harvard Medical School and Martin Kulldorff is a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School.

Sadly the government prefers to choose politics over science. The politicians don’t protect the vulnerable (New York – they forced COVID-19 patients into elderly nursing homes which killed thousands).

We need to get the state COMPLETELY out of the decision-making process.

Humanity spent much of the 20th century learning that top-down, centralized decision-making consistently produces humanitarian disaster.

Why are we still talking about this?

“But I have been struck by how this emphasis on keeping the numbers down at all costs has NOT EVOLVED with time. There is a kind of SIMPLISTIC goal of keeping people from getting infected, period. Now this may seem like a worthy goal, but with a highly contagious respiratory virus to which most of the world’s population is probably still not immune, people ARE going to get infected. The virus will spread, quickly or less so, until herd immunity is reached.”
