“Casedemic”: COVID-19 Lockdowns, Part 1


Robert Verkerk, Ph.D., founder and Scientific Director of the Alliance for Natural Health International, weighs in on COVID-19 lockdowns.

He explains how widespread screening for COVID-19 could yield misleading risk estimates. Dr. Verkerk explains the controversy over “herd immunity”, and how a narrow traditional view might lead us to overestimate the degree of background immunity needed to slow a pandemic. What lessons does the Swedish experience with COVID-19 offer us? Why vaccine transparency will be essential to assuage substantial public resistance to a novel shot. Click HERE for part 2.
