32,000 Health Experts Sign Declaration Against Lockdowns
“The most compassionate approach … is to allow those who are at minimal risk of death to live their lives normally to build up immunity.”

More than 32,000 medical doctors and other health scientists from around the world have signed a petition against lockdowns put in place to curb the spread of COVID-19, saying that the measures are causing “irreparable damage.”
As of Oct. 13, more than 23,000 of those signatories were medical practitioners and 9,000 were medical and public health scientists. They have joined more than 400,000 members of the general public in signing the petition.
The petition is co-authored by Dr. Martin Kulldorff, a Harvard professor and epidemiologist with expertise in detecting and monitoring infectious disease; Dr. Sunetra Gupta, an Oxford University professor and epidemiologist with expertise in immunology; and Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, a Stanford University Medical School professor and epidemiologist with expertise in infectious disease and vulnerable populations.
“Coming from both the left and right, and around the world, we have devoted our careers to protecting people. Current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and longterm public health,” reads the petition, titled the Great Barrington Declaration, after the Massachusetts town where it was crafted by the three experts on Oct. 4.
The declaration says lockdowns result in worsening cardiovascular disease outcomes, fewer cancer screenings, lower childhood vaccination rates, and deteriorating mental health, to name a few issues, all of which will lead to high mortality in the years to come.
“Keeping students out of school is a grave injustice,” the doctors write.
Instead of shutting everything down until a vaccine is available, the experts say focus should be on minimizing mortality and social harm until herd immunity is reached. Herd immunity refers to when a population becomes immune to an infectious disease, which the signing doctors say will eventually be reached for all populations, and can be assisted by, but not dependent upon, a vaccine.
“Fortunately, our understanding of the virus is growing. We know that vulnerability to death from COVID-19 is more than a thousand-fold higher in the old and infirm than the young. Indeed, for children, COVID-19 is less dangerous than many other harms, including influenza,” the declaration states. The declaration says public health officials should aim to protect the most vulnerable population, while allowing those who are not vulnerable to “resume life as normal.”
“The most compassionate approach that balances the risks and benefits of reaching herd immunity, is to allow those who are at minimal risk of death to live their lives normally to build up immunity to the virus through natural infection, while better protecting those who are at highest risk.”
Measures to protect the vulnerable population, the declaration says, can include examples such as minimizing staff rotations at nursing homes, delivering groceries and other essentials to retired people living at home, and the elderly meeting family members outside rather than inside when possible. Meanwhile, all members of society should take simple hygiene measures such as hand-washing and staying home when sick to bring down the herd immunity threshold, the doctors say.
But young low-risk adults should be allowed to work normally, rather than from home; schools should be opened for in-person teaching; and extracurricular activities such as sports should be resumed, the declaration says.
“Arts, music, sport, and other cultural activities should resume. People who are more at risk may participate if they wish, while society as a whole enjoys the protection conferred upon the vulnerable by those who have built up herd immunity,” the declaration says.
Dr. Matt Strauss, one of the Canadian doctors who has put his name to the declaration, told the Toronto Sun that most medical professionals he has talked to agree that the lockdowns are bringing more harm than benefit.
“I don’t even think my opinion is a minority opinion among the experts I work with,” said Strauss, a critical care physician and professor at Queen’s University School of Medicine.
In August, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said the United States doesn’t need another lockdown to contain COVID-19, provided that Americans embrace “five or six fundamental public health measures.”
Fauci, a member of the White House coronavirus task force, told Politico’s “Pulse Check” podcast on Aug. 5 that “we can get through this without having to revert back to a shutdown,” but only if everyone follows such basics as wearing masks, social distancing, and thorough hygiene.
Meanwhile, a study published in the British Medical Journal last week says that while initial restrictions were effective at reducing the burden in intensive care units in UK hospitals, maintaining the lockdowns would prolong the pandemic and increase the number of deaths.
“The model predicted that school closures and isolation of younger people would increase the total number of deaths, albeit postponed to a second and subsequent waves,” says the study, based on the data used by the British government when it imposed lockdowns in March. Isabel van Brugen contributed to this report.
When persons being held as slaves were accused by their masters of insubordination, or of eating more than their allotment of food, they might expect to be fitted with an iron muzzle. In his autobiography, Olaudah Equiano described his first encounter with such a device in the mid-1700s. . .
“I had seen a black woman slave as I came through the house, who was cooking the dinner, and the poor creature was cruelly loaded with various kinds of iron machines; she had one particularly on her head, which locked her mouth so fast that she could scarcely speak, and could not eat or drink. I [was] much astonished and shocked at this contrivance, which I afterwards learned was called the iron muzzle.”
Slave with Iron Muzzle is an illustration from the 1839 publication, Souvenirs d’un aveugle, by Jacques Etienne Victor Arago (link).
There is much controversy today regarding the mandate of mandatory mask, perhaps some would say our iron muzzle. The recommendations to wear mask or not wearing mask, come from CDC, the US Department of Health and Human Services and the State Health Departments who are referred to as the Global scientists aligning with the World Health Organization. Depends on who you ask and when you will get different answers. If the masking would actually stop the spread of a deadly virus, there would be no hesitation from most people. But this so called pandemic seems to be very questionable. Ninety-four percent of Americans who died from COVID-19 had other “types of health conditions and contributing causes” in addition to the virus, according to a new CDC report. That leaves the 6 percent of those deaths directly related only to covid19 while the rest had at least two or more underlying pre-existing conditions, including diabetics, obesity. heart disease, lung disease, kidney disease, dementia and hypertension.
In fact, people who are obese, who also have the coronavirus, are more than twice as likely to end up in the hospital and nearly 50 percent more likely to die.
So why the mask? Is it to create division? Some believe they are keeping themselves and others safe while others feel it hinders good health, our immune system; and even believe it falls in line with slavery and satanic rituals.
The New England Journal of Medicine said in an article published in April 2020 stated, ” We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes). The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal. In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.”
“We are not defenseless against COVID-19,” said CDC Director Dr. Robert R. Redfield. “Cloth face coverings are one of the most powerful weapons we have to slow and stop the spread of the virus – particularly when used universally within a community setting. All Americans have a responsibility to protect themselves, their families, and their communities.”
It appears the medical community that has been silenced by Mainstream Media. Especially those who do not believe the masks are beneficial, but yet communities around the county are making mask mandatory in order to work or go in to a business or even leave your home. In Blaylock: Face Masks Pose Serious Risks To The Healthy, Dr. Russell Blaylock says that not only do face masks fail to protect the healthy from getting sick, but they also create serious health risks to the wearer. If you are not sick, you should not wear a face mask.
This is the first time in modern human history, an entire populace now faced each other, masked-up and social distancing. This was the first step toward chaos on the American street. Some didn’t realize the unintended consequences; some did and exploited this opportunity for the next step in manipulating society. The mandate of wearing masks or face coverings is becoming more common in cities than suburbs.
The mask may represent the persona, the image you present to the world. Perhaps it means do not speak just do as you are told. Perhaps this entire pandemic is allowing you to take a fresh look at that image and also to look behind it, to discover your true self. It may have served you and supported your ego in the past, but possibly you are now beginning, or being urged, to see yourself in a new way.
For ceremonies where masks are worn, they are viewed by both spectators and participants as consecrated objects imbued with supernatural power. Lets examine the four distinct, but interrelated, occult rituals that make up this massive global occult ritual initiation ceremony today: Ritual Mask-Wearing, Ritual Hand-Washing, Ritual “Social Distancing” and Ritual Lockdowns. Among other things, the wearing of the mask over one’s mouth is a token of submission, a gesture of your willingness to be subject to others who are not your usual Sovereign.
But there’s more. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, mask-wearing is: “A form of disguise or concealment usually worn over or in front of the face to hide the identity of a person and by its own features to establish another being.”
In other words, the wearing of a mask may represent an occult transformation, a human alchemy, if you will , from one role to another. From one manner of being, to another. In this case, from individual sovereign under God to collective subject under the children of the devil, a positive to negative transformation. The masking ritual is specifically designed to reverse the order of hierarchy of Infinite Intelligence. In the hierarchy of God, you are a sovereign representative of the divine. Psychologically, as a spectator, you are linked to the past through the spirit power of the mask. So ask yourself , does your mask represent malignant, evil, negative or potentially harmful spirits? Much to consider.
As the debate in schools regarding the mask requirement for children continues, it seems humanity has literally lost its moral compass by requiring mask for the children. We all have our God Given immune systems to fight any type of disease and infection and we can develop herd immunity . We simply have to nurture our mind, body and spirit by the foods we eat, the movement of our bodies, and by our thoughts, emotions and actions. God is closer than your heartbeat, all you have to do is listen.
