Three years ago the Covid virus began to invade these shores. We now have three full years of evidence that the lockdowns of businesses, stores, restaurants, churches, and schools had a minuscule impact on saving lives. The chart below updated through 2/2023 shows that there was almost no difference in death rates in lockdown states versus states that remained open. (Of course, the non-lockdown states did much better economically and academically.) Amazingly, states with no lockdowns had LOWER death rates per capita than states with strict lockdowns.
But mark our words: more health and climate change lockdowns are coming our way from the same gang that lectures us about “following the science.”
