DO LOCKDOWNS PREVENT COVID MORTALITY? A REVIEW OF THE JOHNS HOPKINS META-ANALYSIS [EPISODE 205]

February 2, 2022

In this episode, I talk about the study that came out recently that showed the lockdowns do very little to prevent COVID-19 mortality. The study was published in Studies in Applied Economics (SAE). SAE is produced by the Johns Hopkins Institute for Applied Economics, Global Health, and the Study of Business Enterprise. You can see the study here:

I quote heavily from the study, citing page numbers if you care to follow along.  I also add my own commentary and perspective to the article.

I am an academic, and after reading the article, I thought it would be helpful to try to explain the academic article to my audience. You can hear what they said and make up your own minds about what kind of policy might be effective. This is important because the choices leaders make impacts followers.
