The sad math of lockdowns

The professor whose grim warning that 500,000 Brits may die from Covid-19 without action-triggered lockdown has admitted Sweden may have suppressed its outbreak as well as Britain — without imposing the draconian measures. 

Professor Neil Ferguson, of Imperial College London, revealed he had the ‘greatest respect’ for the Scandinavian nation, which has managed to suffer fewer deaths per capita than the UK. 

He made the comments at a House of Lords Science and Technology Committee this week during his first public appearance since flouting stay-at-home rules to have secret trysts with his married mistress last month.  

The epidemiologist — dubbed Professor Lockdown — has come under fire for his modelling which predicted half a million Britons could die from Covid-19 and heavily influenced the UK’s decision to rush into a nationwide quarantine.  

As of Wednesday, the United Kingdom reported about 40,000 coronavirus-related deaths. 

Sweden has been criticized by world health officials bent on lockdowns for not shutting down its economy to combat the spread of COVID-19. 

Pandemic hysteria pushers in the mainstream media Wednesday glommed on to comments by Anders Tegnell, Sweden’s chief epidemiologist, that he believed too many people in the European nation had died of the virus — more than 4,500 out 10 million people. The death count is significantly higher than neighboring Scandinavian countries, but lower than the United Kingdom and France, which ordered nationwide lockdowns. 

Epidemiologists preaching quarantine had projected Sweden would record tens of thousands more deaths than it did because of its looser approach. 

“If we were to encounter the same disease again, knowing exactly what we know about it today, I think we would settle on doing something in between what Sweden did and what the rest of the world has done.” But he later said, “We basically still think that is the right strategy for Sweden.”
