"There are good, epidemiological reasons that lockdowns don't work," he told Carlson Tuesday, "which is why, for 15 years, experts on pandemics said this was not a good idea and all of a sudden in March they threw out everything they been saying."
Berenson, the author of "Unreported Truths about COVID-19 and Lockdowns," said "there is good reason to believe, if you look at some of the Sun Belt states, that maybe the worst of the second wave or the summer spike is behind us."
"Hospitalizations in places like Arizona and Florida and Texas are all declining ..." he added. "Other people in the media are going to be able to, probably, look at slightly rising death counts maybe for some period in the next few days and make hay with that if they want to, but if you actually look at hospitalizations, it looks like we are maybe past the worst of this in the Sun Belt."
Berenson elaborated on his ideas in this podcast with Dr. Drew Pinsky last month.
