The Great Barrington Declaration is a statement written by three public health experts from Harvard, Stanford, and Oxford, encourages governments to lift lockdown restrictions on young and healthy people while focusing protection measures on the elderly.
As infectious disease epidemiologists and public health scientists, they have grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies, and recommend an approach they call Focused Protection.
There is a wealth of knowledge contained in their website "gbdeclaration.org", including medical articles, videos and so much more.
The Declaration was written from a 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.
This is an international declaration, written with concerns for the entire world. It was written for the public, fellow scientists, and government officials.
The Declaration was written by Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, Dr. Sunetra Gupta and Dr. Martin Kulldorff. A family member and a journalist helped with phrasing, grammar, and proof reading. Nobody else saw the declaration before it was completed in its final form.
The Declaration was written from October 2 to October 4, 2020. It was signed on October 4, 2020 after which it was sent to scientific colleagues. It was released to the public on October 5, 2020.
