Thousands of doctors and medical scientists are taking a stand against the nation’s lockdowns, and are calling for the country to reopen. One America’s Pearson Sharp has more as scientists say the lockdowns have devastating consequences for public health.
The video, below, comes from OAN, a relatively new network. This report tells us YouTube this week temporarily banned One America News Network for breaking rules about COVID-19 claims, shuttering the right-wing cable outlet on the world’s largest video site for a week.
Newsmax says “YouTube, part of Alphabet Inc.’s Google, (is) also suspending advertisements from the network for violating other unspecified policies.”
Here are some ways to participate and support OAN’s efforts to report:
As of Oct. 13, over 23,000 of the signatories were medical practitioners and 9,000 were medical and public health scientists. They have joined more than 400,000 members of the general public in signing the petition.
The declaration says lockdowns result in worsening cardiovascular disease outcomes, fewer cancer screenings, lower childhood vaccination rates, and deteriorating mental health, to name a few issues, all of which will lead to high mortality rates in the years to come.
“Keeping students out of school is a grave injustice,” the doctors write.
Instead of shutting everything down until a vaccine is available, the doctors say focus should be on minimizing mortality and social harm until herd immunity is reached.
