June 3: In the medical journal The BMJ, Dr. John Ioannidis argued against lockdowns stating,

Under lockdown conditions many patients with acute, treatable conditions (such as coronary syndromes) avoid seeking care.

Covid-19 overwhelmed a few dozen hospitals, but covid-19 countermeasures have already jeopardized thousands of them.

In the absence of a safe and effective vaccine, treatment, or prophylaxis, non-pharmaceutical interventions are the only options available to slow the virus’s spread. These include physical distancing, hygiene, masks, isolation of infected people and their contacts, and lockdowns, such as closures of school and businesses and bans on public gatherings and travel.
