The human tragedies caused by the COVID-19 global pandemic will be counted for decades. Now, important questions are being asked about how much damage was caused by the public health measures implemented to suppress the virus, especially lockdowns. Covid Collateral is an investigative documentary which reveals that the severe lockdowns imposed by western governments were not driven by scientific consensus or accurate data. Instead, important scientific debate which would have served the public good, was shut down. How was the powerful medical establishment, big tech and the government involved in the suppression of prominent scientists who were critical of lockdowns? How did an unquestioning mainstream media support the government narrative?

The film begins when COVID met politics, as soon as the virus surfaced in Wuhan, China in late 2019. The Communist Party of China censored news about its spread and covered up evidence of its transmission. Dr. Anthony Fauci led a staunch campaign rejecting the “escaped from a lab in China” theory, publicly demonizing scientists/doctors who suspected the lab leak theory to be true. Now, through the Washington 2023-2024 hearings of the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic, this lab leak “conspiracy theory” has proven to be very credible.

What happens when science is censored in a free society?


With unfettered access to the leading dissenting doctors/scientists such as Jay Bhattacharya, Scott W. Atlas (Trump’s special advisor to the White House Coronavirus Task Force) and the journalists chosen by Elon Musk to curate the “Twitter Files”, we will expose the orchestrated take-down of esteemed medical figures, which extended throughout social media and in legacy media such as The New York Times and The Guardian.

“This whole lockdown philosophy has fundamentally changed our civilization. It will come back over and over again unless we, as a society, decide that we do not want to live this way.”

Jay Bhattacharya MD, Ph D
Professor of Health Policy, Stanford University
