Canadian Health Expert: “Costs of Lockdowns are at Least 10 Times Higher than the Benefits”

Dr. Aji Joffe, a specialist in pediatric infectious diseases at the Stollery Children’s Hospital and Clinical Professor at the Department of Pediatrics of the University of Alberta, argues in a recent cost-benefit study on the implications of government imposed lockdowns that they cause collateral damage at least ten times greater than than that of the virus itself.

Initially, I simply assumed that lockdowns to suppress the pandemic were the best approach. But policy decisions on public health should require a cost-benefit analysis … Once I became more informed, I realized that lockdowns cause far more harm than they prevent.” – Dr. Aji Joffe

Dr. Joffe found that lockdowns have negatively affected millions of people across the globe with food insecurity (82-132 million), severe poverty (70 million), maternal and under age-5 mortality from interrupted healthcare (1.7 million), infectious disease deaths from interrupted healthcare, school closures affecting future earning potential and lifespan of children, domestic violence mostly against women, mental health issues, drug addiction and more.
