A review by Swedish university scientists of a study by British universities found that lockdowns in cities are not effective in stopping the spread of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus, but sometimes worse.
This is demonstrated by the review’s leader, Kristian Soltesz, and his associates, in cataloging the application of quarantines and stay home orders called Non-Pharmaceutical Intervention (NPI).
The “conclusion that all NPI, apart from blocking, have been of low efficacy, should be treated with caution in terms of policy decisions,” said Soltesz.
A team of scientists from Stanford University is even more adamant about the controversial results presented in the UK.
“In short, we found no strong evidence to support a role for more restrictive NPI in controlling COVID in early 2020,” according to Outkick’s Jan. 15 publication.
He added, “We do not question the role of all public health interventions, or coordinated communications about the epidemic, but we do not find an additional benefit of stay home orders and business closures.”
Soltesz and his associates thus deny the results reported by the study conducted by scientists Seth Flaxman and others from the Department of Mathematics, Imperial College London, London, UK, published in Nature on June 8.
“The data on deaths are not sufficiently descriptive to support the conclusions of Flaxman and others, which were based on the simulation results obtained by an excessively flexible model,” concluded the reviewers of Soltesz’s study.
Flaxman and his team, authors of the initial study reviewed at universities in Sweden and at Stanford, stated that the closures had “a great effect” in preventing the spread of the CCP Virus and therefore considered it beneficial to continue these measures.
“Our results show that the major nonpharmaceutical interventions, and the closures in particular, have had a large effect in reducing transmission. Continued intervention to keep SARS-CoV-2 transmission under control should be considered,” the researchers concluded.
Based on mortality data collected between January and early May 2020, Flaxman and his associates concluded that only one lockdown had been effective in 10 of the 11 European countries studied.
The countries considered were England, France, Germany, Iran, Italy, the Netherlands, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, and the United States.
Flaxman’s study, now considered erroneous, supported the March 19 statement of the Communist Party of China (CCP) that its model of lockdowns had been successful because the cases of virus originating in the country had disappeared.
The CCP locked down many millions, declaring that only 4,634 had died after the appearance of the CCP Virus in the city of Wuhan, Hebei, China.
According to the studies that reviewed Flaxman’s findings, these collapsed completely, as did the CCP’s propaganda about the alleged success of its quarantines.
It should be noted that based on indirect evidence, several sources believe that those killed by the CCP Virus were far more numerous than those cited by the CCP.
The closures and quarantines, which still cause so much damage in many countries, could be attributed to a propaganda strategy of the CCP, in order to outdo its global competitors, warns researcher and lawyer Michael P. Senger.
For Senger, the CCP’s strategy sought to destroy the economies of competing countries, and he listed a series of facts to support his theory, according to Summit News on Sep. 28.
Senger noted that the death rate caused by the CCP Virus is relatively low and said that the CCP had armies of Twitter accounts, managed by bots, driving the first closures in countries like Italy.
In addition, the CCP continually criticized countries that opposed the closure model imposed in Wuhan, the first place in China to report the disease.
Simultaneously Senger published a series of videos showing, through social media, the dramatic collapses of Chinese people on the streets, some of which seemed overacted.
