Countries around the world that enforced the strictest lockdown measures during the pandemic have the least immunity against COVID-19, a new study has revealed.
The analysis was conducted by The Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington’s School of Medicine.
Researchers estimate that China, which still has multiple lockdowns in place, has the lowest level of Covid immunity on the planet.
According to the research, other nations that didn’t institute harsh lockdowns, including Russia, Singapore, and Brazil are thought to have the highest immunity levels.
The research estimates immunity rates according to infection numbers, vaccination rates, and how much time has passed in the interim.
The analysis asserts that, as of the end of October 2022, just 17.2 percent of China’s population has immunity from the virus.
Meanwhile, Russia is estimated to have an immunity rating of 74.5% because everyone in the country is now believed to have contracted the virus.
While Singapore’s immunity rating is thought to be around 70%, and Brazil’s is 68%.
Japan, another country that put harsh restrictions into place, is believed to have just 38.9% immunity.
The analysis shows that the U.S. is believed to have 60.5% immunity at this time.
Ironically, given the IHME’s COVID model being used to laud strict restrictions, the analysis again highlights the futility of lockdowns in preventing the spread of the virus in the long term.
Johns Hopkins University previously concluded that lockdowns have had a much more detrimental impact on society than they have produced any benefit.
Researchers are now urging that the measures “are ill-founded and should be rejected as a pandemic policy instrument.”
A U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report released last month highlighted how a record number of children in the U.S. are now being hospitalized with common colds due to weakened immune systems.
The CDC data is consistent with research by scientists at Yale who warned that it is not normal to see children with combinations of seven common viruses, including adenovirus, rhinovirus, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), human metapneumovirus, influenza, and parainfluenza, as well as COVID-19.
There has also been a global outbreak of hepatitis cases in children, with the media asserting the cause is “unknown.”
Officials in Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration have continuously pushed for children to keep wearing masks in schools.
Despite Covid posing virtually no risk to the health of children in normal circumstances, people are persisting to force their kids to wear masks.
