(AmericanProsperity.com) – Back in March, the COVID-19 lockdowns were originally implemented to “flatten the curve.” Over six months later, many still remain. The isolation has had devastating effects on many Americans, and, as a result, a large group of doctors, scientists, and citizens are pushing back.
The Great Barrington Declaration is a petition signed by over 2,826 medical and public health scientists, 3,794 medical practitioners, and 60,000 citizens. Co-authored by professors from Harvard, Oxford, and Stanford, it declares their “grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies” while asking, instead, for “Focused Protection.”
This requested plan outlines that Americans have different risks when it comes to the virus, and there is more to our nation’s health than just COVID-19:
‘Focused protection’ is not to trade the old off against the young. It is a strategy that recognizes that frail people need more help, whilst millions of others do not. Public health is far bigger than one virus. We must preserve it, & the quality of life. #Signupstartliving pic.twitter.com/FvOxqzfHsC

As people of all ages continue to eat at home, forgo religious gatherings, and do work and school virtually, they’re experiencing isolation and mental health issues more than ever. But, this research-based petition could bring about change, allowing life to return to some semblance of normal for those who choose it.
