Lockdowns From An Export On Balanced Pandemic Response

Someone shared a clip of Dr. Scott Atlas, adviser to the White House on COVID-19, on Laura Ingraham’s show.
Oh, was it good.

It began with Ingraham asking if Atlas thought Biden would lock America down again if “cases” began to rise in January.

Atlas replied:
“Anyone who’s talking about doing another lockdown has really not been paying attention for the last seven months and is simply out of touch with average Americans…. The prolonged lockdowns are a complete disaster. They’re a complete disaster for missed health care; they’re a complete disaster for average working families and particularly for people who are working class and lower-income people.

“People have been killed by people who want to have prolonged lockdowns. And when I say ‘killed,’ I look at the data. And that means, for instance: this week it was shown that forty-six percent of the most common types of cancers were not diagnosed during the lockdown. Those cancers didn’t disappear. They’re there. People will present with much later, more widespread disease.”

Some 650,000 Americans missed important cancer treatment, Atlas added, thanks to “the fear instilled by our so-called public health experts. You could go on and on: 40 percent of people with acute strokes.”

After mentioning the statistic that I’ve shared with you, that an astonishing 25.5 percent of people between 18 and 24 contemplated suicide in the month of June alone, Atlas concluded: “It’s just completely off the rails.”
“And it’s much worse — not for the elites who are sipping lattes working for a tech company where I live, in Silicon Valley — for people who are average, working-class Americans, they are destroyed by prolonged lockdowns.”

And then, in direct response to a question about Dr. Fauci:
“History will record the faces of the public health expertise as some of the most sinful, egregious, epic failures in the history of public policy. They have killed people with their lack of understanding and their lack of caring about not just the impact of cases of COVID-19, a virus that the overwhelming majority of people do well in. They never cared to considered the impact of the policy itself, and the policy itself has been a complete epic failure, and honestly some people say a crime against humanity — these people should be held accountable for what they did.”
