May 17, 2020

Dr. Knut Wittkowski, a former head of biostatistics, epidemiology and research design at Rockefeller University, doesn’t believe lockdowns are necessary

YouTube removed a video of him explaining why after it was viewed 1.3 million times

“With all respiratory diseases, the only thing that stops the disease is herd immunity. About 80% of the people need to have had contact with the virus, and the majority of them won’t even have recognized that they were infected,” he says in the now-deleted video.

“I was just explaining what we had,” Wittkowski told The Post of the video, saying he had no idea why it was removed. The footage was produced by the British film company Journeyman Pictures.

“They don’t tell you. They just say it violates our community standards. There’s no explanation for what those standards are or what standards it violated.”
