Stanford University Doctor Speaks Out – Says ‘You Are Mistaken’ If You Believe COVID-19 Lockdowns Increase Safety

Dr. Jayanta Bhattacharya, a professor of medicine at Stanford University, just defied the liberal media to speak out and say that people are “mistaken” if they actually think coronavirus lockdown policies are keeping people safe from COVID-19.

Bhattacharya, who recently led the largest COVID-19 antibody study in the U.S., carried out tests on staff members of 27 Major League Baseball teams to figure out how much coronavirus has already spread. Based on the results of this and prior research of his, Bhattacharya has concluded that lockdowns are not a good thing and may even be causing further harm.

“I think in the back of people’s heads there is this idea that somehow we can eradicate this disease if we just stay locked down,” Bhattacharya said, according to The Blaze. The serologic evidence, even in the MLB study, suggest this. It suggests the epidemic is too widespread to eradicate.”

He added that he believes the lockdowns may have not moved the population toward elimination of the virus, but instead just delayed the spread. The doctor thinks that as a result, when lockdowns are finally lifted, COVID-19 will spread again.

“There is no safe option,” Bhattacharya said. “If you think that having a lockdown will provide you safety, you are mistaken. Because the problem is this lockdown has had enormous negative effects on the health of people in the United States and around the world.”

The doctor suggested that the public should lift widespread lockdowns in most locations based on local data, instead of continuing them nationally when only a few areas are directly impacted by the virus. He added that the focus should be on protecting at-risk people, improving treatment, and on gaining a greater understanding of coronavirus to further figure out who is at risk of dying from it.

The mainstream media will not like what Bhattacharya had to say, as they seem to want lockdowns to go on as long as possible in the hopes that it will ruin Donald Trump’s chances of being reelected. This just goes to show that we need to end these ridiculous lockdowns immediately, and focus on getting our country back on track.
