Why Lockdowns Don’t Work and Hurt the Most Vulnerable Plus Eliminate Millions Of Small Businesses

Lockdowns have wrought unimaginable hardship, suffering and death; 163,735 U.S. businesses had closed their doors as of August 31, 2020, and of those, 60% — a total of 97,966 businesses — were permanent closures. Meanwhile, the collective wealth of 651 billionaires in the U.S. rose by more than 36%

An April 2020 report estimated 3 million Britons had gone without food at some point in the previous three weeks. An estimated 1 million people had by then already lost all sources of income

A Canadian survey in early October 2020 found 22% of Canadians experienced high anxiety levels — four times higher than the prepandemic rate — and 13% reported severe depression. The drug overdose epidemic has also significantly worsened this year

In Japan — which didn’t even implement lockdowns — government statistics reveal more people died from suicide in the month of October than have died from COVID-19 all year

Lockdowns have also resulted in dramatic increases in domestic abuse, rape and child sex abuse. Children are also falling behind socially and developmentally, even if they’re not exposed to direct abuse
