Lockdown was a waste of time and could kill more than it saved, claims Nobel laureate scientist at Stanford University. The coronavirus lockdown could have caused more deaths than it saved, a Nobel laureate scientist has claimed.

Michael Levitt, a Stanford University professor who correctly predicted the initial scale of the pandemic suggested the decision to keep people indoors was motivated by (media-driven) panic rather than the best science.

Michael Levitt, a Stanford University professor who correctly predicted the initial scale of the pandemic, suggested the decision to keep people indoors was motivated by ‘panic’ rather than the best science

Professor Levitt also said the modelling that caused the government to bring in the lockdown put forward by the since discredited Professor Neil Ferguson, over-estimated the death toll by 10 or 12 times.

His claims echo those in a JP Morgan report that said lockdowns failed to alter the course of the pandemic but have instead destroyed millions of livelihoods.

Author Marko Kolanovic, a trained physicist and a strategist for JP Morgan, said governments had been spooked by flawed scientific papers into imposing lockdowns which were ‘inefficient or late’ and had little effect. He said falling infection rates since lockdowns were lifted suggest that the virus likely has its own dynamics’ which are unrelated to often inconsistent lockdown measures.

Denmark is among the countries which have seen its R rate continue to fall after schools and shopping malls re-opened. Germany’s rate has mostly remained below 1.0 after the lockdown was eased.

Prof Levitt told media: ‘I think lockdown saved no lives. I think it may have cost lives. It will have saved a few road accident lives, things like that, but social damage, domestic abuse, divorces, alcoholism, has been extreme. And then you have those who were not treated for other conditions.’

Professor Levitt, who won the Nobel Prize for chemistry in 2013 for the development of multi-scale models for complex chemical systems has said for two months that most experts’ predictions about coronavirus are wrong.

Prof Ferguson’s modelling estimated up to 500,000 deaths would occur without social distancing measures. (He also admired the Emperor’s new clothes).

Prof Levitt added: ‘For reasons that were not clear to me, I think the leaders panicked and the people panicked. There was a huge lack of discussion.’

The 73-year-old Nobel Prize winner is not an epidemiologist, but he assessed the outbreak in China at the start of the crisis and made alternative predictions based on his own calculations.  Although Professor Levitt does acknowledge that lockdowns can be effective, he describes them as ‘medieval’.

His comments come as other scientists working in the same field also reported that they couldn’t verify Prof Ferguson’s work. Competing scientists’ research, whose models produced vastly different results, were largely ignored by government advisers. Source
