The WHO urges halt to COVID lockdowns

Someone needs to let Govs. Gavin Newsom (D-CA), Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI), and other power-drunk blue-state governors know that their favorite international health organization is urging states and nations to stop using economically destructive lockdowns as a primary means of controlling the spread of COVID-19.

The World Health Organization’s special envoy, David Nabarro, told The Spectator on October 8 that the lockdowns were causing more health and economic problems than they were solving. Nabarro stated:

We in the World Health Organization do not advocate lockdowns as the primary means of control of this virus. The only time we believe a lockdown is justified is to buy you time to reorganize, regroup, rebalance your resources, protect your health workers who are exhausted, but by and large, we’d rather not do it.

California, Michigan, New York and other states have been in lockdown for more than six months.

Nabarro emphasized that lockdowns were having many unintended consequences, most of which hurt lower-income and poor people the most:

Just look at what’s happened to the tourism industry, for example in the Caribbean or in the Pacific, because people aren’t taking their holidays. Look what’s happened to smallholder farmers all over the world because their markets have got dented. Look what’s happening to poverty levels. It seems that we may well have a doubling of world poverty by next year. Seems that we may well have at least a doubling of child malnutrition because children are not getting meals at school and their parents, in poor families, are not able to afford it.

Nabarro went on to appeal to all world leaders to stop using lockdowns. He stated what should have been obvious to governments long ago: This is a terrible, ghastly global catastrophe, actually.

Nabarro’s appeal follows The Great Barrington Declaration, signed on October 4th, by thousands of scientists, epidemiologists, and physicians stating that lockdowns should end for people that are healthy. Doctors from Harvard, Oxford, and Stanford are among the signatories.

In the Declaration, they advocate for increased herd immunity which will help protect the more vulnerable population through natural infection rates and recoveries that deprive the virus of hosts which in turn reduces the circulation of the virus eventually to zero.

The most compassionate approach that balances the risks and benefits of reaching herd immunity, is to allow those who are at minimal risk of death to live their lives normally to build up immunity to the virus through natural infection, while better protecting those who are at highest risk. We call this Focused Protection.

In order to achieve that “herd immunity” as soon as possible, the signatories urge the return to normal life.

Those who are not vulnerable should immediately be allowed to resume life as normal. Simple hygiene measures, such as hand washing and staying home when sick should be practiced by everyone to reduce the herd immunity threshold. Schools and universities should be open for in-person teaching. Extracurricular activities, such as sports, should be resumed.

Young low-risk adults should work normally, rather than from home. Restaurants and other businesses should open. Arts, music, sport and other cultural activities should resume.

It remains to be seen if the WHO’s declaration will have any effect on governors that have grown used to the control over their citizens that coronavirus lockdowns give them.

  1. ” California, Michigan, New York and other states have been in lockdown for more than six months. !!! ”

    The DemonRatic States That Govr’ns Have ORDERED MAIL IN BALLETS !!!

      1. Reques an absentee form through your Email! They send your ballot to your email and mail it back through Fedex so it will get there in time! They are doing this all over the country. <i applied for an absentee on sept 25th and still havent received through email my ballot and have written the election voting office several times and still nothing. But I am out of the country or I would go in person and vote!

  2. And then there is the President’s attitude for the White House and look at the results. He just can’t seem to understand that the virus doesn’t respect his political wishes. Very strange, isn’t it? This little tiny virus just doesn’t seem to understand that he is THE President. And now Bill Barr is in the dog house for failing to name an investigating prosecutor capable of making up charges against President Obama and the Clintons. What is this world coming to?

    1. Sorry Altlurker but there is major proof, viable proof, of the charges which should be processed. It is past time for these people to be allowed to get away with spying, lying, trying to oust a President. I could go on but you just need to read Judicial Watch reports, or the FBI ones that are released. This should be prosecuted to fullest and for 3 years feet have been dragging.

    2. You can’t read! Maybe go back to school n learn how too. That way you don’t look like the biggest idiot on this page. What can we do about your stupidity?

  3. My, My, My! What will Biden/Harris/Pelosi and the rest of the Dumocrats (can’t believe I was one for 35 years) do now? Well, anyone who can stand in front of terrorists burning stores awhile on National TV and say theyre “peaceful protests” will surely come with more BS to continue to twist/hide the truth.

  4. This whole lockdown has been from the start a way for the Democrats to comtrol people so they will stay home and NOT VOTE IN PERSON. DON’T STAY HOME GO TO POLLS AND VOTE!!!!

  5. My comment was to the one n only Altlurker who loves n craves bad attention. He’s so starved for attention bc he never got it growing up.

  6. VERY ONE HAS AN OPINION JUST LIKE THEY HAV A PLACE TO GET RID OF THE FOOD THEY EAT SO MY OPINION ANY YOURS ARE AS GOOD AS THEIRS. I HAVE THE BRAINS TO PROTECT MY SELF AND I DO NOT NEED THE GOVERNMENT TO FORCE ME TO DO ANYTHING. IF IT KILLS ME SO WHAT, IT’S MY CHOICE. SO, KEEP MY COUNTRY RUNNING FOR MY GREAT GRAND KIDS, I DO NOT NEED YOUR HELP. I AM 89 YEARS OLD AND THE WORSE THING IS TO KEEP ME FROM THE ONES I LOVE. SO BUG OFF. I CANNOT LIVE FOREVER ON THIS WORLD, BUT HEAVEN IS JUST AHEAD.

  7. Well, well, well. What will their excuse be now :
    “Politicians are smarter than science ?”
    “Politicians are smarter than doctors ?”
    “Politicians are always right ?”
    “Politicians are more powerful than anyone, and they’re never wrong ?”
    “Politicians must insist on a study to support the WHO’s claim before lifting restrictions.”
    ( The study will likely take 6 months )
