Martin Kulldorff is a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and a biostatistician and epidemiologist at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
Kulldorff is one of thousands of medical experts who see little value in lockdowns and other draconian behavioral control measures proposed by public health authorities, including vaccine mandates.
Instead, Kulldorf thinks it’s essential to focus any public health response to COVID on high-risk groups, such as the elderly.
It seems that the public health authorities, in cooperation with vaccine manufacturers, have converged on a single, comprehensive approach that is at odds with the needs of particular groups.
Kulldorff is one of the authors of the Great Barrington Declaration, which states:
“Those who are not vulnerable should immediately be allowed to resume life as normal. Simple hygiene measures, such as hand washing and staying home when sick should be practiced by everyone to reduce the herd immunity threshold. Schools and universities should be open for in-person teaching. Extracurricular activities, such as sports, should be resumed. Young low-risk adults should work normally, rather than from home. Restaurants and other businesses should open. 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.”
In the meantime, focused protection for the vulnerable and early treatment are essential until we can get this pandemic under control. Focused protection does not include lockdowns or treatment mandates, according to Kulldorff.
