Swedish Professor Of Epidemiology Quits COVID Research After His Findings Undermine Political Arguments

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Dr. Jonas Ludvigsson, a Swedish professor of clinical epidemiology at the Karolinska Institute, quit his COVID research after his findings led to a backlash against him when he discovered just how low a threat the alleged virus is to children, which undermined political arguments for not only closing schools but keeping them closed.

According to The College Fix, Ludvigsson said he has lost sleep as a result of the “angry messages through social media and email” which blamed him for Sweden’s COVID-19 strategy after he published his findings in The New England Journal of Medicine.

The College Fix reports:

Ludvigsson’s comments to the Swedish Medical Association were translated from Swedish by The British Medical Journal. He said that he hasn’t been able to sleep more than a few hours for a week as a result of the “angry messages through social media and email” criticizing his study and partly blaming him for Sweden’s contrarian COVID-19 strategy.

His letter to the editor, first published Jan. 6 and listed in the Feb. 18 issue of NEJM, went through several revisions and  “formal external peer review,” including statistically, before it was published, Ludvigsson told the association.

The pediatrician’s research focused on children from age 1 to 16 during the first wave of COVID-19 last spring, tracking admissions to intensive care units March 1-June 30. It included those with “laboratory-verified or clinically verified Covid-19, including patients who were admitted for multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children” because it’s “likely” related to COVID-19.

Just 15 children went to the ICU, for a rate of 0.77 per 100,000. Four had “an underlying chronic coexisting condition (cancer in 2, chronic kidney disease in 1, and hematologic disease in 1),” and none died. As for teachers, “fewer than” 10 in preschool and 20 in school went to the ICU during the same period. The schoolteacher ICU rate was about 19 in 100,000.

Relevant to school reopening debates across the globe, Ludvigsson notes that children weren’t wearing face masks. As with the rest of Swedish society, they were simply “encouraged” to practice social distancing.

Deaths from any cause in the 1-16 age group only slightly budged from the four-month period before the pandemic to the four-month period after – from 65 to 69.

Sweden is planning to boost academic freedom protections in law in part as a result of Ludvigsson’s experience, though it’s unclear what will change.

The New York Post added:

Higher education minister Matilda Ernkrans told the British Medical Journal that the government is planning to amend the Higher Education Act to ensure “that education and research must be protected to enable people to freely discover, research and share knowledge.”

Karolinska Institute president Ole Petter Ottersen told the journal that “hateful and scornful accusations and personal attacks cannot be tolerated,” whether against the pediatrician or other researchers who have “retreat[ed] from the public debate after being threatened or harassed.”

It’s a shame that when the truth is actually presented, people are hostile to it because they have so bought into the lies and propaganda regarding the “virus” that we have been told has nearly a 100% recovery rate.

Why is that?  Do people not want good news or are they more comfortable living in fear and as slaves?

Thanks for speaking the truth, Dr. Ludvigsson!  Now, get back in the fight.  The world needs more people like you!
