Covid restrictions served ‘no useful purpose’- Doctor Nick Coatsworth face of the ‘vaccine rollout’ hits out at restriction ‘demanders’

“We locked down our society, stopped children from attending school, closed playgrounds, fined the least fortunate, separated families, created mental illness, all in the name of protecting our most vulnerable, yet for some it will never be enough. When will the moralising stop?”

This is the statement and question raised by former deputy chief health officer Dr. Nick Coatsworth as he slammed the overzealous use of pandemic measures in dealing with the covid crisis.

Recognised as the national ‘face’ of the vaccination rollout, Dr. Coatsworth current stance promotes that lockdowns and restrictions did more harm than good to Australians.

Many commenters to his Twitter post agree while some were not so convinced.

While the doctor maintains that people should ‘get vaccinated’ he said that the nation’s response to the pandemic could have been handled better.

According to an interview with the Daily Mail Australia Coatsworth said ‘loud voices’ are still promoting covid-fear rather than promoting the need to learn to live with it.

“My preference was always to look at the benefits and consequences of whatever restriction was bought in.”

“I’ve thought in general that we were too slow to realise the negative consequences of most of the restrictions,” he said.

While he says covid has caused a lot of disruption, he believes Australia is in a “good spot” compared to other nations.

In a paper published on 5 May 2022 and tweeted by Dr. Coatsworth, a list of twelve unintended consequences of mandates and passports was discussed arguing that pandemic policies have caused more harm than good.

Coatsworth said that restrictions are no longer necessary and should be removed, particularly the forced wearing of masks for children.

The doctor also said some measures such as curfews and restrictions on outdoor activity “went too far,” adding that the taping up of playgrounds was “just bizarre.”

Amid the labour crisis facing the country, Coatsworth said the ‘fearmongering’ needs to stop. Citing that vaccination rates are at around 95 percent, the doctor slammed the persisting draconian health measures, which still prevent ‘unvaccinated’ workers from the workforce.

Dr. Coatsworth told the Daily Mail,

“At the really pointy end, which I think is what we always have to bring it back to with the pandemic, is how much actual morbidity and mortality is this disease-causing.”

“It’s really quite small compared to the number of cases that there are in the community,” he said.

While he said most people were ‘pretty convinced’ at the start that restrictions were needed, and that measures taken were reasonable, he noted that the health measures represented an “infringement on human rights” where civil liberties became an afterthought.

Dr. Coatsworth said,

“But unfortunately there was always a very loud group that thought Covid should be eliminated at all costs and I think that did hold us back a bit.”

In February 2022 Coatsworth acknowledged in an interview with Sky News that the flu was worse than the Omicron variant.

A press release in 2022 also saw Dr. Kerry Chant speak about the need for Australians to start learning to live with Covid.
