Lockdown ‘panic virus’ among world leaders cost more lives than it saved, claims Nobel Prize scientist

„The problem with epidemiologists is that they feel their job is to frighten people into lockdown.

„So you say ‚there’s going to be a million deaths‘ and when there are only 25,000 you say ‚it’s good you listened to my advice‘.“

The lock was a waste of time and could kill more than it saved, says Nobel laureate

Michael Levitt, a professor at Stanford University who correctly predicted the initial magnitude of the pandemic, suggested that the decision to keep people inside was motivated by “panic” rather than better science.

Professor Levitt also said that the modeling that led the government to impose the foreclosure – done by Professor Neil Ferguson – had overestimated the number of deaths by “10 or 12 times”.
