    John Ioannidis, a world renowned researcher, has dropped yet another robust paper on lockdown value..


    He is known for his sophisticated and highest quality scientific approach, and has made material contributions to evidence-based medicine, epidemiology, and clinical research.

    John Ioannidis is a physician-scientist, writer and Stanford University professor - he literally has written the book on how to do evidence-based research and commits to raising the bar through his teaching and research standards advocacy.

    Ioannidis studies scientific research itself, meta-research primarily in clinical medicine and the social sciences, and therefore is a perfect candidate to assess the question - ”Do Lockdowns and Mandated Tough Restrictions add any value to controlling COVID Case growth?"

    Well, the answer is in. In a word, the answer is "NO" according to this latest COVID published research.Read the key snippets in the image below to get the gist of this research and their findings.

    - If the above credentials aren't enough for you, then how about his WHO published paper on Global & national COVID IFR rates. Literally, his paper is on the WHO website.
    - Moreover, perhaps you want to take a look at Ioannidis' other Lockdown paper which concluded similarly, or the other 27 published research papers that continue to show limited to no net-positive effect of Lockdowns and More Restrictive NPI's.
    - Or, if that's not enough - then what about WHO's guidance in October that Lockdowns should be avoided, or their 2019 Pandemic guidance that also did not recommend national Lockdowns?

    At some point, we all need to honestly reflect on the empirical evidence and scientific literature when it comes to Govt interventions.If we all did this, the public sentiment would surely shift.

    There's only so long we can cling on to weak non-evidenced yet societally and economically destructive Govt enforced interventions. - AdapNation
