Great Barrington Declaration Now Exceeds 870,000 Signatures

On October 4, 2020, three highly-respected medical professionals wrote The Great Barrington Declaration to protest damaging COVID-19 policies, including physical and mental health impacts. Today, just 14 months later, the Declaration has attracted 870,000 signatures, including almost 60,000 from medical scientists and practitioners.

The original drafters included:

  • Dr. Martin Kulldorff, professor of medicine at Harvard University, a biostatistician, and epidemiologist with expertise in detecting and monitoring infectious disease outbreaks and vaccine safety evaluations.

  • Dr. Sunetra Gupta, professor at Oxford University, an epidemiologist with expertise in immunology, vaccine development, and mathematical modeling of infectious diseases.

  • Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, professor at Stanford University Medical School, a physician, epidemiologist, health economist, and public health policy expert focusing on infectious diseases and vulnerable populations.

They were joined by 43 highly-credentialed co-signers.

Since the GBD completely refutes the global Technocrat narrative of fear-mongering, lockdowns, school closings, social distancing, mask wearing, etc., it has been completely ignored by the world’s media and medical policy makers.

The Great Barrington Declaration

The Great Barrington Declaration – As infectious disease epidemiologists and public health scientists we have grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies, and recommend an approach we call Focused Protection.

Coming from both the left and right, and around the world, we have devoted our careers to protecting people. Current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and long-term public health. The results (to name a few) include lower childhood vaccination rates, worsening cardiovascular disease outcomes, fewer cancer screenings and deteriorating mental health – leading to greater excess mortality in years to come, with the working class and younger members of society carrying the heaviest burden. Keeping students out of school is a grave injustice.

Keeping these measures in place until a vaccine is available will cause irreparable damage, with the underprivileged disproportionately harmed.
