Paper out from the National Bureau of Economic Research legitimizing what was discussed here last year. 

"Our main quantitative result is that there is substantial variation in health outcomes across countries following the reference lockdown. In our model, the lockdown led to an average of 1.76 child deaths for every COVID-19 fatality averted in low-income countries."

As expected, the poorer populations, both within and outside the US, fared the worst.

The inventor of the mRNA vaccine was on Fox news. Why are colleges mandating these vaccines when, at the very least, it is not settled science that the benefits outweigh the risks? Time to slow down.

When asked about whether college-aged young adults should take the vaccine, Dr. Robert Malone replied:

Dr. Robert Malone: So I have a bias that the benefits probably don’t outweigh the risks in that cohort. But unfortunately, the risk-benefit analysis is not being done… Certainly I can say the risk-benefit of those 18 and below doesn’t justify vaccines. And there’s a pretty good chance that it doesn’t justify vaccinations in these very young adults.
