Science of COVID - Lockdowns (General)

This is an interesting article - unfortunately behind a paywall. Here are a few quotes:

"This pandemic is not the Spanish flu. Data is now telling us that it is not even in the league of the Hong Kong flu."

"In May, modellers had said Sweden would experience more than 100,000 additional deaths from COVID this year, with 96,000 additional deaths by July if lockdowns were not imposed. (However), there will be about 4500 additional deaths this year, a far cry from the models"

"Sweden’s average two-year death rate in 2020 will be around 0.92 per cent, the second lowest in the past 10 years."

" cordons have been used only once in the past 500 years: for Ebola in 2014 in Africa. But only “very small-scale cordons” — comparable to quarantines — were found to be effective by an evaluation, not the larger-scale lockdowns."

Interestingly, the writer, SANJEEV SABHLOK, was an economist in the notorious Daniel Andrews' government of Victoria. He resigned three months ago "to protest against disproportionate public health measures by Daniel Andrews that had led to a police state".
