    The CEO of IOHK, Charles Hoskinson, who doubles as the co-founder of Cardano (ADA) and Ethereum (ETH), has recently questioned the reason why more data are not made available to justify assumptions that led to ongoing lockdowns across the world, initiated by the outbreak of coronavirus.

    Charles Hoskinson believes that the unavailability of such data cast doubt on the justification of locking down the whole world.

    Obviously, the coronavirus is still spreading across the world, and its effect across the board is obvious. Economic, social, and other activities in all nations of the world have been put on hold. Many local businesses are shutting down.

    At press time, going by the record made available, the world has recorded 3.42 million coronavirus cases, with 1.09 million recovery and relatively 244,000 deaths.

    The question which Charles Hoskinson is asking now is the methodology in place to support people, small businesses, and industries to survive the total lockdown.

    However, the Co-founder of Cardano (ADA) Charles Hoskinson still believes that the closures and quarantines are working to contain the highly contagious virus, despite the unavailability of necessary data he requires.

    Charles Hoskinson’s Opinion on Necessary Measures to Contain Coronavirus

    In a periscope video, titled “A Quick Question”, shared with his teeming followers on Twitter a couple of hours ago, Charles Hoskinson opined that a coordinated effort by the United States corporate leaders could deliver vital data that would help in this struggle.

    He said:

    “If you take Kroger, Walmart, Target, Amazon, and Costco, and you add these companies up together, I believe there are about three million employees there, which constitutes about a percentage point of the entire US population.”

     “Now these companies are still operating, and they’re open. And four out of the five of them regularly interact with millions of Americans because people buy their groceries and other essential goods at these places.

    So the question is, why are we not taking a statistically significant subset of the employees of these organizations, especially the ones that involve lots of contact with the public. Millions of Americans, let’s say at least .1%, or something around there, have Covid or are carrying it. Let’s just use that as an argument. That’s tens of thousands of infected people exposing these millions of people every day.

    Why are we not taking a statistically significant subset of these people on a regular basis – every two weeks, four weeks – and testing them to see if they’ve been infected or are already infected — they have antibodies? Why aren’t we doing that? Isn’t the goal to reopen the country, and we’re trying to understand what’s going to happen when we reopen? No. We’re not doing that.

    Instead, the media just wants to call apparently anybody who has the audacity to say we should end the quarantine ‘Nazis’.”

    “These five entities, Costco, Amazon, Walmart, Target, Kroger, and so forth, having millions of people going to work every day, interacting with millions of people every day, and yet, somehow, we don’t have massive coffins outside of these stores. And somehow we don’t bother to even look at that as a good statistical set to draw from to get an understanding of what ending the lockdown is going to mean. 

    I’ll also remind all those people that are pro-lockdown that I just read something today – that the United Nations and the World Health Organization said we could see up to 260 million people die of famines as a consequence of Covid, specifically the economic consequences of the global lockdown.”
