I have linked to his unwelcome information before. This thread is the newest information. I don't bother to discuss the issue much anymore, because people have made up their minds and are not accepting contrary information. There are many issues, including "What are the best safety measures?" "What lockdown measures are voluntary and which imposed by the government?" "Did any of them help or did they just destroy people's lives?" "Were many results inevitable no matter what we did?" and "Is herd immunity just about to happen, especially if we push it along? Why is that taking so long?"
Those are difficult enough. But everyone is easily distracted to other issues that are infuriating. "Were the initial estimates accurate?" As there were umpty-leven initial estimates, which ones do you mean? I know! Why not cherry pick the ones that make your argument look better and keep focusing on how someone on the other political side is stupid! That'll work. People try to compare apples and oranges in terms of countries. Canadians are big on this, even though Ontario and especially Quebec - geographically the places that might have been America and contain a large percentage of the population - are roughly like American states in their numbers, and the great empty stretches of Canada are like the great empty stretches of everywhere else. Conservatives make excuses for Sweden's high numbers because they want them to be right, and liberals deplore Sweden's high numbers, even though they are quite low now, because they want them to be wrong.
A reminder again that much of our lockdown behavior is voluntary, of businesses that feared exposing their employees or their customers to disease, and no government made them do it.
Except perhaps an early spike in deaths related to untreated diabetes there are not more deaths from the shutdown than from CoVid, including suicide and homicide. there are claims that abuse has increased, but thus far all I have seen is anecdote. I don't know what the proper tradeoff is, deaths of elderly people versus jobs for younger people, but it is important that we operate from real numbers, not pretend ones.
Carnegie Mellon has some data showing at least some value to mask wearing. Pretty good correlation, but you can make the slope steep or shallow as you like.
