Yes, good article, especially for those on the left and still convinced of the standard covid narrative to read. This in particular:

Lockdowns are a luxury of the rich,” Bhattacharya said, “and affect a certain class of people at the expense of others. A lockdown doesn’t mean all of society stops and we all sit in cages alone while we wait for the fires to go away. The poor and working class, many of them vulnerable and older, are asked to risk themselves, while another class of people stays at home protected.

I recall raising at the time, but it fell mostly on deaf ears. Again, note the lukewarm (and critical) reception at the TLN.
