I think this is it.The charade is that this has become a “let us not get blamed for this Covid fecker and especially for the deaths.”
Politicians hide behind the so called “science” which in truth is mathematical modelling by people like Ferguson who has been wrong in everything he has modelled for years.
With the government saying they it is following “the science” the scientists/modellers are bound to take an ultra cautious approach and recommend continuing restrictions. Otherwise they will get the blame if hospitalisations and deaths tick up
I believe policy was based on the IFR being around 3%. We now know it’s between 0.1 & 0.5%
Also studies have failed to find any meaningful instance of asymptomatic spread.
But the media driven hysteria has taken grip so hard, and government response so heavily scrutinised that they can’t turn the clocks back now.
Imagine the backlash should Johnson and Whitty come out and say ‘sorry folks, we dropped a massive *******, this Covid is nowhere near as deadly as we first thought, and if you’re not showing symptoms you can’t spread it, those economy and emotionally devastating lockdowns? Huge mistake, soz.’
