“On Oct. 4, 2020, with Prof. Sunetra Gupta of Oxford University, we wrote the Great Barrington Declaration (GBD). Our purpose was to express our grave concerns over the inadequate protection of the vulnerable and the devastating harms of the lockdown pandemic policy adopted by much of the world; We proposed an alternative strategy of focused protection. … Unbeknownst to us, our call for a more focused pandemic strategy posed a political problem for Dr. Francis Collins and Dr. Anthony Fauci. … Rather than engaging in scientific discourse, they authorized ‘a quick and devastating published takedown’ of this proposal, which they characterized as by ‘three fringe epidemiologists’ from Harvard, Oxford, and Stanford. … Collins, Fauci, and Farrar got the pandemic strategy they advocated for, and they own the results together with other lockdown proponents.” (01/02/22)
