New Study Shows Lockdowns Didn't Actually Work

New LOCKDOWN Study Confirms The Heartbreaking Truth

(ConservativeInsider.org) – When governments first began issuing lockdown orders in March 2020, most people assumed it would just be two or three weeks of restrictions while being careful to wash hands and wear a mask until life got back to normal. However, over two years since the first restrictions went into place, researchers are beginning to realize that the closures intended to reduce the spread of COVID-19 did not actually work.

A peer-reviewed study conducted by Japanese researchers and published this year by the journal Scientific Reports reveals that closing bars and restaurants failed to decrease COVID-19 in “active and high-risk subpopulations.” The research analyzed data in early 2021 when the Delta coronavirus variant was spreading in Japan. The only lockdown measures in the nation at the time were these closures, allowing the researchers to get a unique look at their effectiveness — or lack thereof.

The study pointed out that the restrictive measures “lead to the deterioration of the mental health of workers in the industry” rather than any notable decrease in coronavirus cases. With so few in attendance, it apparently did reduce “cough[ing]” among college graduations, though.

Researchers also noted that the Japanese population is a “collectivist culture” that emphasizes mask wearing and hand washing, the latter of which cuts down on virus transmission. Will other nations and governments understand the implications of this study and choose alternative measures in the future when it comes to global pandemics? Let’s hope we never need to find out.
