Petition Action

Publish a cost benefit analysis of Covid-19 restrictions, including lockdown

Petition Details

This should cover short and long term impacts on: economy, GDP, jobs, investments; increased deaths from other causes; societal impacts; mental health impacts; analysis on quality of life lost vs length of life. Long term relationship between the above (eg. impact of economic downturn on mortality).

Additional Information

To date the government hasn’t published much information on the cost:benefit of Covid-19 restrictions, including the lockdown. We believe that these restrictions and decisions do not adequately factor in the impacts outside of covid. Many people believe that the negative impact of restrictions outweighs those of the virus in terms of long term negative impact.
