There is increasing evidence that Covid restrictions had little or no effect on the impact of the virus that we have been fighting for the past year. The Epoch Times reports.
Nearly a year after California Gov. Gavin Newsom ordered the nation’s first statewide shut down because of the coronavirus, masks remain mandated, indoor dining and other activities are significantly limited, and Disneyland remains closed.
By contrast, Florida has no statewide restrictions. Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis has prohibited municipalities from fining people who refuse to wear masks. And Disney World has been open since July.
Despite their differing approaches, California and Florida have experienced almost identical outcomes in COVID-19 case rates.
Lots of questions like this are being raised, and it will take science a while to answer them. But, it brings us back to Ben Franklin's quote: "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."
The evidence is beginning to suggest that the Covid restrictions had no effect whatsoever on the course of the pandemic.
