Two experienced doctors who made a video debunking the logic behind a continued COVID-19 lockdown have become outlaws in the eyes of YouTube.
Their press conference video, which accumulated over 5-million views used data, their own experiences, and scientific methods to highlight one thing: The continuation of the lockdown would be worse than the virus.
In March YouTube’s CEO Susan Wojcicki told CNN how it was tackling misinformation about COVID-19. During the interview the CEO said they would remove information that was problematic or medically unsubstantiated.
Wojcicki gave an example in the interview, saying that content which claimed vitamin C or turmeric would cure people of COVID-19 would be “a violation of our policy” and removed accordingly.
The question is, which part of the press conference went against YouTube’s policy?
The two medical experts who created the video are Dr. Dan Erickson and Dr. Artin Massihi, co-owners of Accelerated Urgent Care in Bakersfield, California.
During the video the doctors said that there is a 0.3-percent chance of dying from COVID-19 in California.
After running through all of their data, the doctors ask the question: “Does that necessitate sheltering in place? Does that necessitate shutting down medical systems? Does that necessitate people being out of work?”
They’re important questions to ask.

The Biggest Revelation
During the press conference, the doctors don’t just slam the lockdown. They agree that at the start, it made sense because no one knew the severity.
However, now the death rate looks similar to the flu, which they prove via data in the video, there’s no reason to keep everyone locked down. Especially when the lockdown will cause issues like alcoholism, anxiety, and depression.
The biggest revelation in the doctor’s press release video was that they admit to being pressured to include COVID-19 as the cause of death. The doctors said: “We’ve been to hundreds of autopsies. You don’t talk about one thing, you talk about comorbidities. ER doctors now [say] ‘It’s interesting when I’m writing about my death report, I’m being pressured to add COVID. Why is that?”
