Moreover the delay in action occasioned by nonsense about herd immunity and the like has really p155ed off some medicos along with the continuing failure to deliver PPE and slow ramp up of testing. The forthcoming letter from Johnson is described as a lie by one medico in a impassioned you tube video.
1. That's conflating two completely unrelated issues: Police over-reaction, and epidemiology theory.
2. [Edit: @PeteSpencer made this point earlier] I strongly suspect that the YouTube video you refer to is the one circulating from Dr Rupert Read. He is not
a "medico": his first degree is PPE, his doctorate is in philosophy* and he is an Extinction Rebellion activist. I am heartily sick of partisan politics muddying the waters of a serious health threat to the World population. "Never let a crisis go to waste" is not
a good look.
