The Left Just Can’t Get Over Its Love of (harmful) Lockdowns; Florida Doctor Reinstated After Losing Board Certification for Criticizing COVID-19 Vaccines, and other C-Virus related stories

The left just can’t get over its love of (harmful) lockdowns:
COVID-mania just won’t go away.
The deadly strains of the virus have been gone for two years now and yet the recent outbreak of a mild flu-like variant is again stoking panic on the left and by left-leaning media outlets.
Nearly 100 universities are requiring masks this fall.
Lionsgate movie studios in Los Angeles and Atlanta-based Morris Brown College just stated they are reinstating not just mask mandates but social-distancing measures and contact-tracing as well.
CNN — which led the panic in 2020 and 2021, causing manic school, restaurant and business shutdowns and vaccine mandates — recently put out a headline on its website that encouraged its readers not to go outside without a mask on.
Really? The latest evidence finds this is less dangerous than a normal flu virus and tracking data suggest that the wave may have already peaked.
Even more disturbing is that the leftist medical community and media aren’t renouncing their calls for mitigation strategies that were catastrophically wrong in the panic era of 2020 and 2021 but instead calling for more of these assaults on freedom down the road. --->READ MORE HERE

Florida Doctor Reinstated After Losing Board Certification For Criticizing COVID-19 Vaccines
A Florida physician known for being outspoken about COVID-related topics has regained his board certification that was stripped because he publicly criticized COVID vaccines.
Now, Dr. John Littell is moving forward from the experience with plans to help future physicians defend themselves when disciplined for voicing viewpoints that are not in the majority, he told The Epoch Times.
Dr. Littell, a longtime family physician in Ocala and a medical school professor, began posting videos sharing his thoughts about COVID-19 testing, treatments, and vaccines early in the pandemic. He was frustrated to find his content often was pulled down from his YouTube channel.
But he fought against what he saw as censorship by moving the content to other platforms, such as Rumble, he said.
Then, in January 2022 and again five months later, he received warning letters from the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM), the organization that issued his certification for his medical specialty.
The letter stated that his videos on YouTube and Rumble spread “medical misinformation” and could put his board certification in jeopardy, he said.
The ABFM declined to comment on the matter because the board's "policy indicates we are unable to comment about professionalism cases," an unidentified spokesperson said in an email to The Epoch Times.
The ABFM is the third largest of the 24 boards of the American Board of Medical Specialties. More than 100,000 family medicine doctors are certified by the board, according to its website. --->READ MORE HERE
