The causes of the rapid increase in the rate of coronavirus transmission in the community, the mortality rates and the steps that were not taken during the 8 months between the two lockdowns in Greece, were traced in the show “Contradictions” with George Sachinis leading scientists.
John Iannidis, a professor at Stanford University School of Medicine in California, said: “I think valuable time has been lost, I do not like being politically correct, I just like to tell the truth. I think the whole narrative of pandemic management was fundamentally wrong. It was a success story based on the fact that the first epidemic wave was almost “absent”.
“Countries with the toughest lockdowns have the biggest losses”
Mr. Ioannidis described the lockdown as “a destructive solution not only for the economy, but even for health”, as he said “it kills more lives than it saves and I doubt if it even saves”.
According to him, “the countries that did the hardest lockdowns have the biggest losses; it does more harm than good to the spread of the virus.”
“We are making fun of ourselves, we are making fun of ourselves, others, citizens, the world, by making a suicidal choice,” he said.
