After a nationwide Covid-19 lockdown, some parts of the country have continued restrictive practices.
But more and more studies are finding they don't work.
Sunday on Full Measure, I follow up with Stanford Professor of Medicine Jay Bhattacharya. He was one of the first scientists to speak out and say that science showed lockdowns would do more harm than good.
Since then, thousands of scientists have signed on against lockdowns. And a new study looking at hard data in a dozen countries confirms that countries with strict lockdowns didn’t fare better than ones like S. Korea where less restrictive safety measures were imposed.
I'll also follow up on my reporting on transgender athletes in high school.
A new executive order signed by President Biden is creating confusion. It seems to suggest that athletes should be allowed to switch from the boys' team to the girls' team.
That creates a clash with an unusual alliance of conservative groups and feminist activists who say that allowing transgenders to compete on the opposite sex team robs women of opportunities guaranteed under Title IX civil rights legislation.
We'll take a deeper look.
And speaking of a deeper look, Lisa Fletcher takes us on a deep dive to the bottom of the ocean in search of life's true origin.
