Brown University Study Shows COVID Rules are to Blame for Decline in Children’s Development

The Daily Mail reported on a “disturbing study” that “shows scores in three key cognitive tests slumped between 2018 and 2021, with face mask rules among possible culprits.” The federal government is forcing mandates on your children in the name of safety, health and the “greater good” but the reality is a very dark one.

The study was conducted by Brown University and shows that COVID rules are blamed for a 23% “dive in young children’s development.” Researchers analyzed 1,070 assessments administered on 605 kids prior to March 2020, before COVID rules such as masking and lockdowns went into effect.

Daily Mail writes “a further 154 assessments from 118 kids administered between March 2020 and June 2021, during the height of the pandemic, were then carried out.” Also, 39 children born in 2018 and 2019 were analyzed over the course of the pandemic into 2021.

The report found there was a 23 percent drop in scores which measured kids’ intelligence quotients since the start of the pandemic. “The study also found similar dips in the same span in regards to developing children’s ability to communicate, both verbally and through subtle facial cues.”

Verbal development “quotient also dropped dramatically, from an average of 100 in 2018 to just below 90 in 2020, and around 70 in 2021.” Non-verbal development “also experienced a similar dip, from a mean score of around 105 in 2019, to 100 in 2020 and around 80 in 2021.”

In conclusion, the study found that “children born during the pandemic have significantly reduced verbal, motor, and overall cognitive performance compared to children born pre-pandemic.”

“In addition” the report adds, “masks worn in public settings and in school or daycare settings may impact a range of early developing skills, such as attachment, facial processing, and socioemotional processing.”

Children at the most risk are boys from poor backgrounds: “we find that males appear significantly more impacted than females and that higher socioeconomic status (SES, as measured by maternal education) helps buffer against this negative impact.”

Much of the world is getting on with life and attempting to recover any of the horrendous damage caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic. However, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has just imposed even more Covid-19 lockdowns sparking unrest.

Chinese citizens are banning together to protest yet another round of strict covid protocols and lockdowns suffocating their freedom.

In Shanghai, citizens chanted against President Xi Jinping’s rule, according to CNN. Chants “Xi Jinping, step down” and “Communist party, step down” were chanted. Some protesters held up blank sheets of paper to symbolize resistance against the Chinese government.

One social media user explained the black sheets of paper: “We don’t need to write anything on it. It is a symbol of the revolution of the people.”

An apartment fire in Urumqi, the capital of the far western region of Xinjiang, killed ten people and injured nine last week. The incident triggered “the most recent wave of unrest” because “it was believed that the mobility restrictions in the area either trapped the residents or slowed the dispatch of emergency services” reports National Review.

Various universities including in Shanghai, Beijing, and Nanjing, saw huge crowds of students who honored the victims and denounced China’s zero-Covid-19 policy and strict control measures.
