P-05-1046 Reconsider lockdown and investigate scientific evidence



This petition was submitted by Anne Ellis having collected a total of 2,189 signatures.


Text of Petition:                     

The Welsh Government is committed to rolling and ever more severe lockdowns based on the rise in the number of Covid positive test results and their belief that this will lead to more cases of Covid and a dramatic rise in deaths. Could they also consider the views of Professors Sunetra Gupta, Carl Heneghan and Karol Sikora (amongst others), and take note of the Great Barrington declaration and its signatories; and acknowledge that lockdown actually causes more harm than good.
