Five medical experts published a letter in the Canadian Medical Association Journal urging for an end to wide-sweeping lockdowns. The letter was co-authored and signed by the following specialists: Infectious Disease Specialist, Jennifer M Grant, Respirologists, Jane Batt, Infectious Diseases Specialist Martha Fulford, Medical Microbiologist Jocelyn A Srigley and Respirologist Nick Vozoris. “It is impossible to accurately describe the social and economic impact for all people,” they wrote. “Places with heavy lockdowns and severe limitations of economic activity have still seen high case transmission continue despite these measures. Furthermore, having moderate rates of transmission correlates with little, if any excess mortality.”
