Epidemiologist Dr. Knut Wittkowski: ‘Without Lockdowns the Covid-19 Epidemic Would Have Been Over by Now’

A hard-hitting interview with a very direct man

What an interview! Wittkowski doesn’t mince words or sugarcoats anything. This is an almost ruthlessly direct man. He says not doing anything in particular about Covid-19 would have killed 2% of all cases with symptoms, but lockdowns are going to drag out the outbreak and make things worse, as well as nearly guarantee that there will be a second wave of infections.

He also has the first plausible explanation of what happened in Wuhan and why the Chinese were able to finally seemingly contain it (the outbreak had burned itself out, as leaving schools open very late into the outbreak laid the groundwork for herd immunity to build). Worth a watch:


Wittkowski is a German who teaches in New York:

Dr. Wittkowski received his PhD in computer science from the University of Stuttgart and his ScD (Habilitation) in Medical Biometry from the Eberhard-Karls-University Tuüingen, both Germany.

He worked for 15 years with Klaus Dietz, a leading epidemiologist who coined the term “reproduction number”, on the Epidemiology of HIV before heading for 20 years the Department of Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design at The Rockefeller University, New York.

Dr. Wittkowski is currently the CEO of ASDERA LLC, a company discovering novel treatments for complex diseases from data of genome-wide association studies.

    Youtube removed the video. Of course. Liberalism. Hey why don’t we conservatives go to their town and riot and burn down their buildings and steal stuff?!! Did that ever enter your minds after YEARS of censoring us and being unfair and manipulation of the news media? Huh..did it cross your mind even once?!!!

  2. Lee Stevenson says

    We haven’t seen anything yet. Wait until they start vaccinating for it.

  4. stevek9 says

    This is one of the best, clearest interview/explanation I have seen. Sad of course, since he makes it clear that we are making things worse. I can’t even imagine the damage we are doing to the psychology of the ordinary American. We will never recover from this. We’ll be wearing masks every day, like the Chinese.

    1. Eileen Kuch says

      Really???!! We’ll recover, all right. Just remember this .. We recovered from the “Spanish Flu” that swept the world in the midst of WWI; we recovered from the Great Depression of the 1930’s; and the various epidemics and pandemics of the past 20 years or so. Don’t be so pessimistic, dude, it”ll only negatively affect your own health. As the saying still goes – “Laughter’s the best medicine”;D

    2. GAguidestones says

      It makes facial recognition a little more difficult. Three months ago if one walked into convenience store with a mask on, one of the clerks would be dialing 911 before you got to the beer cooler.

  5. GAguidestones says

    Like lambs to the slaughter we are being led into the new world order.
    Event 21 was the rehearsal for the Wuhan virus.
    Now we are being conditioned to do as we are told, and the fear factor is the motivating factor.
    Somewhere down the road we will be required to carry our papers if we leave our homes.
    The papers we must carry will evolve into a micro chip we must bear.
    Vaccines must be taken, they might even contain the next pandemic down the road.
    Remember according to their warning carved in the Georgia Guide-stones: There must be no more than 500 million people on the earth.
    They have to kill 7.5 billion people to reach that goal.
    Like innocent sheep, trusting the farmer, who sent them off on a truck ride.

  6. Undecider says

    The lockdowns are critical. For what? Destroying economies. Governments don’t care about lives.

  7. Ron Ronery says

    The private banks and the 1% are buying up everything 10 cents on the dollar worldwide. Bailouts by government (private banks) are basically tax payer money going to the wealthy to buy up key industries like airlines, mining, petrol industires etc..

  8. Ron Ronery says

    The hospitals are not over run in all cases. A few days but not everyday. Here is a video of Mt. Sinai and Central Park on April 4th. No over run. This is all a media hoax:

  9. Pablo Rivera says

    We all knew that the economic debacle was coming, the Covid is a great scapegoat, while maintaining protesters scared, hidden and dispersed.

    Idiot in the WH

    1. Undecider says

      Trump was smart enough to know it was B.S. You can probably say he was coerced into going along with the plan to wreck America.

      1. Robert Bruce says

        He was coerced or one of them from the beginning. He owes the NYC banks for helping him out of 5 bankruptcies and being able to keep his empire. Plus he is from a rich family and a NYC lifer, so it is very good odds he is indeed one of them.

    2. Meimou says

      Cute that you Trump is just an idiot, and doesn’t have nefarious motives.

    3. Robert Bruce says

      The guy hails from NYC and is a NYC lifer, who was a registered Democrat at least through 2000 and was friends with the Clintons. The man filed bankruptcy 4-5 times and made deals with NYC banks to keep his empire. He isn’t an idiot, he is just playing a role, like basically every modern president has since LBJ. He is owned, and yet at the same time one of them.

  11. Jozo Magoc says

    Fair in this situation is to murder half of each government,younger people,to equal those unnecessary murdered by governments in their fu..k up ” hospitals”! You see the H.Browne statement! Our ” government” officials are useless pigs and parasites,half or even more than half,they are all the time BREAKING OUR LEGS and GRABING US BY THE BALLS!

  12. Charles Homer says

    As shown in this article, a recent study by the CDC regarding the use of both social distancing and self-quarantine shows that both practices are not particularly effective at reducing the spread of coronavirus:


    One has to question why it is that governments are so insistent on both methods given that they are not particularly effective.

    1. GAguidestones says

      Their goal is to teach us control and discipline.

    2. Undecider says

      Their goal was to trash the economy.

      1. Sal Balakrishnan says

        So they could bend us over a second time like during the great depression and loot us while hiring for low wages.
