The harm caused by lockdowns is much worse than the disease of COVID-19 itself. That’s the argument from scores of public health officials and economists around the world, including, but not limited to, an Alberta expert in infectious disease and critical care, Dr. Ari Joffe M.D. of the Stollery Children’s Hospital and the University of Alberta.

“I’m truly worried the (lockdown) approach is going to devastate economies and the future for our children and our grandchildren,” says Joffe, who has practiced at the Stollery for 25 years and has now written a review paper on the impacts of the lockdown.

The cost of lockdowns in Canada is at least 10 times higher than the benefit in terms of population health and well-being, he estimates, at least if you account for numerous variables such as economic recession, social isolation and impacts on life expectancy, education and the full gamut of health-care priorities.

If you look at the issue worldwide, lockdowns will cause at least five times and, more likely, as much as 50 times more harm than benefit.
