The “Great Barrington Declaration” appeal advocates building herd immunity by letting the virus spread freely while people in the risk group are isolated indoors, according to Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK).

More than 500,000 people have signed the petition. 

Among them, 28,400 doctors and 10,300 medical and public health researchers. 

Doctor and radiologist Per Mathisen at Sørlandet Hospital, former editor Charlotte Haug in the Norwegian Medical Association Journal, and former municipal chief physician Dagfinn Haarr in Kristiansand municipality are among those who have signed.

Earlier this week, WHO chief Tedros Ghebreyesus went out and warned against such a strategy. 

Assistant Director of Health Espen Nakstad agrees with the WHO.


“It is obvious that you can’t protect a single age group completely. All experience indicates that the infection spreads from younger to older people when the pressure of infection in society becomes large enough. 

“We have, for example, seen that employees at nursing homes and hospitals can infect residents and patients, simply because they are contagious before they even notice that they have symptoms,” Nakstad told NRK.

“It would also be unethical to lock in all the elderly and isolate them to a greater extent than today,” he continued.

Until recently, it was possible to see who signed the petition. 

According to The Independent, several signed the petition with fake names such as “Dr. Person Fakename,” “Dr. Johnny Fartpants,” and “Mr. Banana Rama.”

  1. This is the same let-it-rip “herd immunity” *dangerous* nonsense pushed by Tegnell and the Swedish “medical experts” responsible for the medical mass murder over there.

    Mandatory facemasking in public along with sanitation and (when possible) social distancing can keep Norway’s death rate low.

    I’m a 73-year-old senior, and I don’t at all mind wearing my comfortable, warm in cold weather outdoors (and indoors) facemask – all-round coverage tucked into my jacket – diagonally folded pillow case – 4 cotton layers. Nor do I mind minimizing going out in public – for my *survival*.

    According to the Hippocratic Oath, it is a doctor’s Duty to minimize his people’s suffering and deaths … in this case before a vaccine is ready.

    So what’s the rush?

    And why are these didactic Darwinian egoists still doctors?

  2. And empirically/scientifically, “herd immunity” is NOT working … other than killing many people, if that is the goal … in the countries like Britain and Sweden which havd attempted it. The virus is already rebounding in those 2 countries.

    Maybe Swedes are gullible enough and Britons powerless enough to swallow this let-it-rip snowjob, but I doubt a *majority* of Norwegians are.

    Washington Post, 13Ot20: “Trying to reach herd immunity is ‘unethical’ and unprecedented, WHO head says.”

    I work in healthcare, I am the one that has to process your specimens to verify if you have Covid. I have first hand been processing these specimens since 2006. Covid has a 97% recovery rate where Pneumonia has a 96% recovery rate and Bronchitis also has a 97% recovery rate. They are the same infectious rate, and caught the same way. The US state I live in has forced mask wearing on the polulation since June, it is NOT working. Masks do not work, if they did, the numbers would be going down. They are not. Do the math people. A 97% recovery rate is not 8% like Ebola, or 7% like Anthrax or 0% like Turberculosis (which the world had an outbreak of from 1998 to 2002 and the world did not lock down). Covid is very survivable, it is not deadly for 97% of the population. Do the math! By the way, the World population is 8 Billion, again, do the math.
