What Happened: Dr. Jay Bhattacharya on 19 Months of COVID

  • katma 20 Eki 2021
  • Recorded on October 13, 2021

    From the very beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, Dr. Jay Bhattacharya has been on the front lines of analyzing, studying, and even personally fighting the pandemic. In this wide-ranging interview, Dr. Bhattacharya takes us through how it started, how it spread throughout the world, the efficacy of lockdowns, the development and distribution of the vaccines, and the rise of the Delta variant. He delves into what we got right, what we got wrong, and what we got really wrong. Finally, Dr. Bhattacharya looks to the future and how we will learn to live with COVID rather than trying to extinguish it, and how we might be prepared to deal with another inevitable pandemic that we know will arrive at some point.

    It's unbelievable to me how so many people get really upset if you try to explain these facts to them...they simply don't want to hear it...Thank you...

    Last year, I was one of tens of thousands of physicians to co-sign the Great Barrington Declaration. Today, I am still proud of that fact. My greatest respect goes out to Dr. Bhatacharya (apologies for spelling), his collaborators on the GBD, and to Dr. Scott Atlas, who I know is on the same page.

      Thanks, I am not a medical professional but I could clearly see that this was not a significant issue that warranted the response it got. It has been truly eye opening to see the scale of human stupidity and the resilience of the economy. I am in different ways hopeful for, and fearful of the future. Thank you for your contribution toward sanity during a time of unprecedented madness.

    Thank you so much for this important interview. I am one of the millions whose livelihood was devastated by the shutdown. I was unable to receive any assistance during that time, and I’m still trying to dig my way out financially. I started 2020 with no debt, and now I’m still on the edge of losing my business with tens thousands of debt. It’s been emotionally draining and stressful, and has taken me from loving my work to dreading it. I live in Washington state, and our state’s lockdown and mandates have been horrible for businesses, while next door in Idaho, it’s been mostly business as usual. We lost many customers to Idaho, since it’s a 25 minute drive away. I really appreciate you drawing attention to the mishandling of the lockdown. I hope it does some good, and wakes some people up.

    Thank you for this intelligent and deep conversation. Personally, my hope to survive covid without vax is equal to my fear of getting serious side effects from vax. The scale is pretty much balanced, at least for me. In my immediate circle, I have four people age 60-80 who died from covid being fully vaccinated. It is a no for me, by now.

      I really wish he had talked more on this. Would have loved to get his thoughts on Dr Peter McCullough, Dr Malone and others incl ex VP Pfizer Mike Yeadon and their very convincing and concerning warning on the vaccines, and also his thoughts on all the alarming safety signals showing in the Vaers data. I face losing my job over an employer mandate and so confused by conflicting information I'm hearing from seemingly genuine and highly educated medical experts. There is also no long term safety data. I am totally opposed to the propaganda and coercion and don't even know how I could continue working for a company that deems it ethical to demand coerced medical interventions on its staff. Where there is risk there should be choice.

    Well I never did go for any spots, never had the Flu & had no intention of getting a Vaccine. Just before Thanksgiving I got Covid from my Vaccinated friend. At 88 it was pretty scary, but with no DR, NO Hospital & no one to care for me, using only needed Supplements I have survive. It was scary & costly. Some side affects very frustrating. Excess sleeping was a great benefit. Unable to care for myself or cook, not being able to eat for over 3 week's worst.

The WHO are not fit for purpose and are a disgrace. The damage to mental health and people's wellbeing is going to be felt for decades to come, I can only hope that this never will be allowed to happen again.

Also, y'all are really informed and smart,and with that being said I would really be interested in hearing about an indepth analysis concerning the the side effects of this actual "experimental vaccine". Not that my opinion counts for much but y'all assume that Dr. "F" has our best intentions at heart which I don't agree with.

    Thank you for this wonderful, clear calm and sensible discussion of one of the biggest man-made disasters in human history. I found it very moving.

    The discussion of the 'Precautionary Principle' highlighted something that worried me throughout the pandemic. No one in government nor in WHO ever discussed the harmful effects of their policies. Only the benefits - claimed or hoped for - of their chosen policies were ever mentioned. Outside experts such as Dr. B. himself, but including all sorts of experts outside government and even one UNESCO scientist, pointed out some of the harms, but it seems these were never even considered by the policymakers.
    It parallels the current climate policies. There could be some dangers from climate change and the governments have decided they must act, not to mitigate these dangers, but to dabble in climate manipulation, which, even if they are right, will only slow the increase in climate related damage. We get never ending recitals of the harms that could come from a small change in climate, but I've never heard a government spokesman or climate activist say anything about the real consequences of the astronomical costs of climate control.
