“The Great Barrington Declaration (GBD), authored by Sunetra Gupta, University of Oxford, Martin Kulldorff, Harvard University, and Prof. Jay Bhattacharya, Stanford Medical School, is marking its one-year anniversary this week. The Declaration is built around the concept of focused protection — using resources to protect people in the society most at-risk from COVID while avoiding the large-scale social and economic consequences of ‘one-size-fits-all’ lockdowns. The anniversary is an excellent opportunity to reflect on the devastating health and societal consequences of the lockdown and COVID-restriction policy, followed by so many governments worldwide. The principles underlying the GBD are relevant today as the world transitions toward a saner, more rational, more sustainable, and more humane COVID policy.” (10/04/21)
