Needless to say his foolish ideas never made the BBC news last night.Actually, the prof does make a good point. He says SAGE is still working with models and he's working with the actual data.
If you believe the models to be correct (ICL paper predicted 500k deaths if we did nothing) then BoJo has saved at least 450,000 lives.
Best PM ever.
No instead we had more Project Panicdemic fear, NE is closed, no one can be tested, cases rising daily, France is even worse and we're going to follow them.
Backed up by many Voxpops of people who frankly didn't appear to have so much as a mild headache, whining that they couldn't get a test.
Cases again over 3K and rising daily. Well yes in total they will be but then not point out it was less than the day before or a few days before that was considerably less and clearly not exponential.
A snippet from the confused expert in charge of some aspect of testing who couldn't explain it, presumably Prof Hennigan was still in the room and could have helped? Scare people into thinking they will die the second they develop anything slightly wrong and they rush out to find out if they will, seems logical to me?
Then to France where its much worse and cases are rising by xxx and so are deaths (yes and by how many ???), poor Pierre fights for his life surrounding by medics in full positive pressure suits.
Notice how NHS staff not being tested was quickly changed to schools at the start of the week, its as though someone figured out with the NHS having all the gear (and knowledge) it'd be hard to straighten that particular curve.
Anyway a single Froggy hospital is very busy and nearly has run out of ICU beds (so it hadn't then had it) and more voxpops of shouty fFrench babbling something in their heathen tongue about how bad it is though no one coughing or looking a bit peaky.
