Origins of the Lockdown

Recommended Posts

But what is this mention of the high-school daughter of 14? Her name is Laura M. Glass, and she recently declined to be interviewed when the Albuquerque Journal did a deep dive of this history. 

Laura, with some guidance from her dad, devised a computer simulation that showed how people – family members, co-workers, students in schools, people in social situations – interact. What she discovered was that school kids come in contact with about 140 people a day, more than any other group. Based on that finding, her program showed that in a hypothetical town of 10,000 people, 5,000 would be infected during a pandemic if no measures were taken, but only 500 would be infected if the schools were closed.

Laura’s name appears on the foundational paper arguing for lockdowns and forced human separation. That paper is Targeted Social Distancing Designs for Pandemic Influenza (2006). It set out a model for forced separation and applied it with good results backwards in time to 1957. They conclude with a chilling call for what amounts to a totalitarian lockdown, all stated very matter-of-factly. 

Implementation of social distancing strategies is challenging. They likely must be imposed for the duration of the local epidemic and possibly until a strain-specific vaccine is developed and distributed. If compliance with the strategy is high over this period, an epidemic within a community can be averted. However, if neighboring communities do not also use these interventions, infected neighbors will continue to introduce influenza and prolong the local epidemic, albeit at a depressed level more easily accommodated by healthcare systems.

In other words, it was a high-school science experiment that eventually became law of the land, and through a circuitous route propelled not by science but politics.

I'd have to look up the article but it was published in 2005 when the lock down quarantines for all were first proposed .  She may  have read the obscure article, and used it for her project.   As I've stated before this is the first time in history that this has been on a mass scale, and it should never be used again.  It was a massive failure.  It did not halt the virus, and it cost taxpayers trillions.

it is an interesting read for anyone that wants to know how we ended up here. Goes against the science. Purely political. Watch the movie Contagion from 2011. Check out this clip. It is pretty much a prediction of what just happened. Scripted from the article above. Complete with "Social Distancing" (y'all thought that was a new term".
