'Dangerous' lockdowns based on 'fuzzy' data, says nurse

Sorry, we're closedSome people and politicians remain in favor of lockdowns as a way of fighting the coronavirus. But the head of organization that promotes the principles of free market healthcare and freedom in healthcare decision-making explains why her group considers lockdowns to be "dangerous for lots of folks."

Twila Brase, RN and president/co-founder of Citizens' Council for Health Freedom, begins by pointing out that "suicide rates have gone up."

"People are not getting care when they should," she laments. "They're dying in their homes, [and] the elderly are abandoned."

Federal and state health officials, as well as governors, say Americans are still not out of the woods. For example, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is reporting 12,175, 921 COVID-19 cases since January 21st. That includes 147,840 new cases as reported on November 24th. Meanwhile, 255,958 people have reportedly died from the disease -- an increase of 882.

Brase, Twila (CCHF)Still, Brase and others question how many of those people actually have or had COVID-19. Also, based on past comments from people like Dr. Deborah Birx of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, who has said people dying with the virus are being counted as having died from it, Brase wonders how accurate the CDC's numbers are.

"Let's say the virus caused you to go to the ICU and then have a heart or kidney problem," Dr. Deborah Birx told reporters Tuesday, April 7th, 2020. "Some countries are recording that as a heart issue or a kidney issue and not a COVID-19 death. We are counting that as a COVID-19 death."

According to Brase, that is not the same thing.

"We're basing this policy off of fuzzy data," Brase argues.

She further points out that lockdowns have never been done in America.

"Even during the Spanish flu, they were not done like this. So this is a first-ever experimental policy, and it has proven dangerous and disastrous for the American people," she concludes.
