Lockdowns Hurt the Poorest
"Growth in life expectancy during the last two centuries has been attributed to environmental change, productivity growth, improved nutrition, and better hygiene, rather than to advances in medical care."
"Last week, I looked up Covid-19 deaths, as reported by the Johns Hopkins University Covid-19 website. It turns out that Sweden – a country that did NOT lock down its businesses and schools – has suffered 575 Covid-19 deaths per million residents. But Sweden's surviving residents are enjoying the lifestyle that Americans were enjoying a year ago."Lockdown-USA, on the other hand, has suffered 600 deaths per million, high unemployment, and a miserable lifestyle, ie alive, but not really living."So who says that lockdowns save lives? Nonsense."Further, Sweden isn't worried about if/when a vaccine will appear, because its populace is now mostly immune. While other Europeans are now being assaulted by a second wave of the plague, Swedes remain largely unaffected."
