Dr. Scott W. Atlas, MD: Lockdown Measures Are Costing Far More in Life Lost than the Virus
Dr. Atlas and his associates have conducted extensive research on the cost of the virus vs the cost of lockdown measures and discovered that lockdowns are costing 700,000 years of lost life per month. This means that to date, after 4.5 months of global lockdowns, these measures have cost over 3 million life years, compared to 1 million life-years for the virus. It is also vital to note that the life-years lost to the virus are based upon total deaths and therefore include many people who would have died this year from other causes anyway. To say that lockdown measures have cost 3 times what the virus has in terms of human life is therefore extremely conservative. The actual number may be more in the range of 20 times.
