So much for following the science.


While the bullying goes both directions, many will be surprised to learn that reputable scientists question our government's strategies.

Quote:

These attacks and others like them have led at least some scientists to self-censor, for fear their contrarian positions would leave them open to reputational damage that could potentially threaten their careers. One epidemiologist told us the environment was “too toxic” to talk to us, even anonymously. The British journalist Laurie Clarke reported similar difficulties when she tried to interview epidemiologists who questioned the majoritarian views regarding population-based lockdowns. One expert told her via e-mail that “putting your head above the parapet is a dangerous thing to do at the moment”.

It should be noted that this article deals with the suppression of differing views on how best to address the pandemic (ie total shutdown vs limited shutdown for those at high risk). Those are valid disputes. However, wearing a mask in public is not up for debate from a public health perspective.

It does not however say that the Pandemic does not exist.
