Remember the hard lockdowns that were imposed on us in the spring of 2020? Forced business closures, no gatherings with friends or family, schools shut down, borders closed… A new analysis out of Johns Hopkins University says those lockdowns did nothing to reduce the mortality rate of covid-19.
Background: The study was led by a Johns Hopkins University professor, Steve Hanke. It identified 18,590 global studies on covid lockdowns, then selected the 24 most relevant – where the studies measured the effect of lockdowns on mortality and used real-world data.
The result: Their analysis found that covid lockdowns caused just a 0.2% reduction in virus deaths. When you break it down by category, it found reduced mortality by:
🔐 Stay-at-home orders: 2.9%
📚 School closures: 4.4%
🏦 Business closures: 10.6%
🚸 Border closures: 0.1%
But while lockdowns caused minor decreases in mortality, the draconian restrictions led to a rise in non-covid deaths due to limited access to healthcare and isolation-related disease.
