“I think lockdown saved no lives. I think it may have cost lives.”
Fox News – Fox Nation host Lara Logan called out the media Tuesday for ignoring how economic lockdowns are causing damage to the health care industry amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“No one is talking anymore about the fact that preventing one COVID death doesn’t mean that you’re not causing a whole lot of other deaths through those prevention measures,” Logan told “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
Logan said that doctors who specialize in cancer have said that patients have avoided treatment, while other people are avoiding care because of a fear of coronavirus.
Stanford University biophysicist Michael Levitt, a British American Israeli who won the 2013 Nobel Prize in chemistry, said he believed other health precautions, such as enforcing the use of masks, would have been more effective in combating the pandemic, the Telegraph reported.
“I think lockdown saved no lives. I think it may have cost lives,” Levitt, who is not an epidemiologist, told the publication.
“I find it extraordinary that people keep talking about a second wave and the danger of what happens in the fall but yet no one is talking about the fact that you’re decimating your health care system.
