- The Facts:Ontario, Canada is set to issue a province wide stay at home order and shut down of all non essential businesses for at least one month.
- Reflect On:Do lockdowns have any effect on the spread of covid? Are people aware of how many people will die and have died as a result of lockdowns?
What Happened: Today, Ontario’s premiere Doug Ford will announce that the province will issue a stay at home order and lockdown of non essential businesses. This comes after the province eased lockdown measures allowing retail stores, restaurants and more to operate at a limited capacity.
Why It Matters: All this comes after months of data has been published in various peer-reviewed journals from multiple countries suggesting that lockdowns are not effective at stopping the spread of COVID. Furthermore, many outline how lockdowns have already, and will kill many more people than COVID due to starvation, lack of access to health care, and other reasons.
