A March public health roundtable event hosted by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis that featured reputable doctors including former White House coronavirus advisor Dr. Scott Atlas and the authors of The Great Barrington Declaration has been removed from YouTube for allegedly “violating YouTube’s Community Guidelines.”
The video garnered over 500,000 views while it was published and covered a group of panelists advising against lockdowns, contact tracing and mask mandates. The doctors – including Drs. Sunetra Gupta, Jay Bhattacharya, and Martin Kulldorff – also called the measures harmful and said that schools should reopen for in-person learning
The Great Barrington Declaration was written by Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, Dr. Sunetra Gupta and Dr. Martin Kulldorff in October 2020. Link to more information about The Great Barrington Declaration Here
The Declaration was written from global public health and humanitarian perspective, with special concerns about how the current COVID-19 strategies are forcing our children, the working class and the poor to carry the heaviest burden. The response to the pandemic in many countries around the world focused on lockdowns, contact tracing, and isolation, imposes enormous unnecessary health costs on people. In the long run, it will lead to higher COVID and non-COVID mortality than the focused protection plan we call for in the Declaration.
It is truly astonishing that YouTube has censored fully accredited medical experts discussing a serious topic that has financially, and mentally affected the entire world. YouTube does not believe you should be allowed to hear experts who have fully examined the lockdown measures and studied the results of the drastic measure which has changed the entire world. This is a form of serious medical censorship and YouTube is performing a disservice to the public by censoring important information.
We encourage you to spread this story to as many people as possible, TJV is in favor of science, and actual science includes information from all sides of a position. This Medical censorship is unparallel and is totally unacceptable in a free country that was founded on free speech and a free press. Here is the uncensored medical round table
