Candidate for U.S. Sentate Dr. Mehmet Oz spoke with Brian Kilmeade about the latest study out of Johns Hopkins that showed lockdowns were an ineffective policy strategy for reducing COVID mortality rates. Researchers found that that lockdowns may have only reduced COVID deaths by 0.2% —but the negative effects of the lockdowns were incredibly destructive.
Dr. Oz says Americans should be angry over this latest revelation.
“Well, you should be angry. I’m angry as a physician,” Oz told “The Brian Kilmeade Show”Thursday. “And just to take you back in time, two years ago, when you and I were doing “Fox & Friends” almost every single morning, we were talking about the fact that some of these rules temporarily might be OK, but unlikely that long term that these lockdowns would work.”
Oz also says, historically, lockdowns have been a bust.
“It didn’t work in 1918. It wouldn’t work today,” he argued. “There are a lot of people … Just to be clear, one size fits all mandates do not work. They failed.”
“While this meta-analysis concludes that lockdowns have had little to no public health effects, they have imposed enormous economic and social costs where they have been adopted,” the researchers wrote. “In consequence, lockdown policies are ill-founded and should be rejected as a pandemic policy instrument.”
