Knut Wittkowski, PhD weighs in on Covid-19 Response

Professor Knut Wittkowski, former head of the Department of Epidemiology at Rockefeller University, speaks out against the fact that the international team directing strategies to protect against COVID-19 is violating every standard protocol for the control of contagious diseases.

He reminds us that the only thing that stops any respiratory disease is herd immunity. The faster that happens, the fewer deaths there will be. Children are highly resistant to these diseases, but the elderly are highly vulnerable.

Also, an amazingly high percentage of those who contract the virus will never know it, and most of the others will have symptoms no more troublesome than fatigue or a cough. He concludes that special care should be provided for the elderly and those who have other health conditions but, after that, everyone needs to get in proximity with each other to accelerate the spread of the virus so herd immunity can be achieved as quickly as possible.

Trying to prevent the spread by isolation, social distancing, closing schools, and shutting down business is the opposite of what should be done. In the end, this will cause far more deaths – not to mention the hardships that will flow from paralyzing the economy. His parting thought is that people are more docile than they should be and, if we don’t stand up and demand our rights to freedom of travel, freedom of speech, and freedom over our own health practices, we will lose them all.
