Doctors’ Recommendations For COVID-19: End Lockdown Now!
By Neenah Payne
On April 29, James Corbett of The Corbett Report asked “Can You Find This Video?”. He challenged people to find the April 27 video “Dr. Dan Erickson and Dr. Artin Massihi counter the official narrative with their data” which had gone viral when posted on YouTube. However, YouTube removed the video repeatedly because it said the video doesn’t support the World Health Organization’s position. That position has been used to justify the lockdown, the destruction of the economy, and the growing threat to our civil liberties. What would happen if people knew about the conclusions these front-line MDs with a combined 40 years’ of training and experience have drawn from their data?
End The Lockdown Now!
Fortunately, the video is available on BitChute now. “Dr Dan Erickson and Dr Artin Massihi counter the official narrative with their data” is a video in which these front-line doctors in California in a one-hour meeting with reporters discuss conclusions they have drawn from the data they have collected about COVID-19. Dr. Erickson and Dr. Massihi report that their findings show COVID-19 is similar to the a seasonal flu we have every year. Therefore, they say we should end the lockdown now because it is not necessary and the costs are too high. Those costs are not just economic — as astronomical as those are.
In the one-hour meeting with reporters, Dr. Dan Erickson and Dr. Artin Massihi, two front-line MDs in California, discuss the conclusions they have drawn from the data they have collected about COVID-19. Dr. Erickson and Dr. Massihi report that their findings show COVID-19 is similar to the a seasonal flu we have every year. Therefore, they say we should end the lockdown now because it is not necessary and the costs are too high. Those costs are not just economic — as astronomical as those are.
Over 30 million Americans have lost their jobs in the last six weeks. The costs include loss of revenue, depression, alcoholism, spousal abuse, child abuse, suicide, etc. These society-destroying costs will mount unless the lockdown is ended NOW! They point out that these things “are significantly more detrimental to society than a virus that has proven similar in nature to the seasonal flu we have every year”. In other words – the “cure” is much worse than the disease! The policy has been a dangerous over-reaction.
These front-line MDs explain that the policies we have been told to adopt are putting us all more at risk because they lower our immune system and make us more vulnerable when the lockdown ends. These policies include the lockdown itself, which is unprecedented and unnecessary for healthy people. They include the wearing of masks, social distancing, excessive washing of hands, and use of disinfectants. These policies make us more vulnerable to opportunistic infections what can result in a “second wave” that will be used to justify another destructive lockdown.
Dr. Erickson read their joint statement which points out
We also need to put measures in place so economic shutdown like this does not happen again. We want to make sure that we understand that quarantining the sick is what we do not quarantining the healthy. We need to make sure if you are going to dance on someone’s constitutional rights, you better have a good reason. You better have a really good scientific reason and not just theory.
Dr. Erickson and Dr. Massihi point out that Emergency Room physicians across the country are coming to the same conclusions they have. Their recommendations are in line with those of a growing number of prominent doctors. It makes sense for our health policy to be based now on solid data from the field rather than on speculative models that are destroying our economy and undermining our freedoms.
WSJ Article: Is The Coronavirus As Deadly As They Say?
The March 27 video “Questioning Conventional Wisdom in the COVID-19 Crisis” interviews Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, a professor of medicine at Stanford University. He is a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research and a senior fellow at both the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research and the Stanford Freeman Spogli Institute.
Dr. Bhattacharya’s March 24 Wall Street Journal article Is The Coronavirus As Deadly As They Say? questions the premise that “coronavirus would kill millions without shelter-in-place orders and quarantines.” In the article, he suggests that “there’s little evidence to confirm that premise—and projections of the death toll could plausibly be orders of magnitude too high.”
The video quotes Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease at the National Institutes of Health who is a member of the White House Corona Task Force, as saying “The flu has a mortality rate of 0.1%. This (COVID-19) has a mortality rate of ten times that.” However, Dr. Bhattacharya says that the mortality rate for COVID-19 is 0.01.%!
The video points out that “It’s not popular right now to question conventional wisdom on sheltering in place, but Dr. Bhattacharya makes a strong case for challenging it, based in economics and science. His research used data collected from hotspots around the world and his background as a doctor, a medical researcher, and an economist.”
Dr. Bhattacharya explains that there is a lot of debate in the medical community about what the correct numbers are – and we should be honest about that. The policy makers plugged the worst-case scenarios into their policies and newspapers reported their alarming views which the public accepted as scientific fact that justified the lockdown of the society and destruction of the economy.
Dr. Bhattacharya believes COVID-19 is a deadly virus, but says that antibody testing on a representative population locally and nationwide must be done to determine HOW deadly it is – and that test just became available a few weeks before this interview. He said he hoped that results would be available by the end of April – if everything goes right. On April 17 in “The Fight against COVID-19: An Update from Dr. Jay Bhattacharya,” he reported that local tests confirmed that the COVID-19 mortality rate is 0.01% — like a seasonal flu. He will soon publish the data from two larger studies – one with Major League Baseball. Other groups in the US and around the world are planning to do similar studies now.
Dr. Bhattacharya warns that the lockdown could cause a global economic collapse that could kill millions of people! He says the rise in GDP in the 20th century pulled billions of people out of poverty and raised life expectancy everywhere. It that gets reversed, it means many lives will be shortened unnecessarily. So, it’s vital now to get the data and policies right – and not to overreact in ways that destroy society.
Lockdown Vs. Herd Immunity
In “Perspectives on the Pandemic | Professor Knut Wittkowski | Episode 2,” epidemiologist Knut Wittkowski explains that we are experiencing horrific consequences now of bad policy decisions. The lockdown has ravaged the economy. Lockdown has severe consequences for social life and depression will surge. Closing the schools was one of the most destructive actions the government has done. Since people can get immunity from a flu naturally, a vaccine wouldn’t be effective. Yet, Bill Gates is saying that lockdown must continue until he can force everyone to take a vaccine – one from which he will profit massively and which is a violation of the Nuremberg Code!
Professor Wittkowski explains that the best way to solve the COVID-19 crisis is with “herd immunity” – not with a lockdown or vaccines. He says that it’s very important to keep schools open so kids mingle and get herd immunity as fast as possible. Nursing homes should be closed for about four weeks. He says any respiratory disease goes for two weeks, peaks, goes for two weeks — and then is gone. “Social distancing” to “flatten the curve” prolongs the crisis.
The reported “second wave” will be a direct consequence of “flattening the curve” with social distancing – and will be used to justify another lockdown! He says COVID-19 was nothing to be scared of because it is a flu like every other flu. If the schools and business had remained open, we would have herd immunity now and there could not be a second wave. However, social distancing is almost guaranteed to CREATE a second wave in the autumn! Herd immunity typically lasts for a couple of years.
Since viruses cannot spread outdoors in the spring, one of the best forms of containment is for people to go outdoors now! “Social distancing” — staying indoors — keeps the VIRUS healthy! Dr. Wittkowski says the Chinese had an advantage because they didn’t know what they were dealing with initially. So, before they started the lockdown, there was enough time for the virus to reach herd immunity.
Wittkowski explained that since he is not paid by the government, he can do real science. He says that had the government not intervened, the epidemic would have been over. He said only 2% of all symptomatic cases would have died – a high of 10,000 people – when about 35,000 people die of the flu in the US every year. He says that testing for respiratory disease is neither necessary nor effective!
Wittkowski says that Americans are more docile than they should be. If people don’t stand up for their constitutional rights now, they will lose those freedoms forever. He says that Americans should be resisting now and holding politicians responsible for their misguided policies that have shut the schools, restaurants, other businesses, and cost Americans so much in so many ways – all for nothing.
Dr. Shiva’s Four-Stage COVID-19 Protocol
In his open letter to President Trump, Dr. Shiva explains that medicine should never be based on “one size fits all”. It should recognize that people are at very different levels of health and thus vulnerability. He divides Americans into four categories and recommends a protocol for each group. He says healthy people should return to work immediately. He recommends that healthy individuals take vitamins A, C, and D, as well as iodine. Ten Health Benefits of Iodine! provides additional information.
Dr. Shiva points out that “third-world” countries Chad and Djibouti had only one COVID-19 infection and ZERO deaths. He suggests the reason is they have a more nutritious diet and they are out in the sun all day where they get lots of Vitamin D. This shows that lockdown (house arrest) is a counter-productive policy that undermines the immune system and the body’s (and nation’s) ability to defend itself.
Dr. Shiva is organizing medical doctors around the world who support his protocol and know that food is medicine – as did Hippocrates, the father of Western medicine. He says any person who needs medical advice on this solution may send an email to [email protected] and will receive an answer from a Medical Doctor.

Report: Wearing Masks Is Useless and Harmful
New York Orders Residents to Wear Masks in Public says that on April 15, New York Governor Cuomo required all New Yorkers to wear masks to protect against the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Are masks helpful – or are they harmful?
Growing debate: Should Americans wear face masks to curb the spread of Covid 19 raises the question but provides no answers! However, the Choosing Life article says about the use of face masks:
Masks do not protect the wearer. Medical masks are ineffective against viruses, and cloth masks provide breeding grounds for them. A 2015 study in the British Medical Journal found that healthcare workers caught viruses from their patients 13 times more often if they wore a cloth mask than if they wore a medical mask, and a Chinese study found that a medical mask was no more protective against viruses than wearing no mask at all. The World Health Organization warns that wearing a medical mask “may create a false sense of security” against COVID-19 and that “no evidence is available on its usefulness to protect non-sick persons.”
The N95 respirator, recommended for medical workers, requires training to use properly and “without training, the masks could not only expose workers to the virus but also lull them into thinking they are protected,” according to doctors at the Harvard School of Public Health. In practice, even the N95 mask has been found to be ineffective in preventing the transmission of viruses. A review of six clinical studies, published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, found that medical workers caught viruses from their patients just as often when they used N95 respirators as when they used ordinary medical masks.”
Masks are harmful to the wearer. COVID-19 kills by causing severe hypoxia (low levels of oxygen in the blood). People wearing masks rebreathe some of their exhaled air, lowering the amount of oxygen they are breathing. “Wearing respirators come[s] with a host of physiological and psychological burdens. These can interfere with task performances and reduce work efficiency. These burdens can even be severe enough to cause life-threatening conditions if not ameliorated,” wrote the author of a 2016 article in the Journal of Biological Engineering. When the N95 respirator was tested in use in 2010, the “dead-space oxygen and carbon dioxide levels did not meet the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s ambient workplace standards.”
So, why are we being required to wear masks?
