These Three Things Should Mean an Immediate End to the Lockdowns

1. There is no empirical evidence for these lockdowns.

Wilfred Reilly looked at the "data from the Worldometers Coronavirus Project, along with information about the population, population density, median income, median age and diversity of each US state, to determine whether states that have adopted lockdowns or 'shelter in place' orders experience fewer Covid-19 cases and deaths than those which pursue a social-distancing strategy without a formal lockdown."

He controlled for a number of variables, also looked at the experiences of other countries, and then says: "I do not find that lockdowns are a more effective way of handling coronavirus than well-done social-distancing measures."
