So, Did Lockdowns Work? | The BDL Show

Dr. Denis Rancourt Examines COVID-19

Doctor Denis Rancourt, from PANDA, examines COVID-19 with Dr Peter Breggin discussing the multiple measures being used during the pandemic, from wearing masks to washing our hands. They evaluate the counting of deaths and the testing for cases. Dr. Rancourt approaches these questions as an experienced scientist with a very broad general interest in the world and its affairs.
