yes, it's starting to look like Neil Ferguson's predictions of half a million dead through covid as reason for the lockdown might not have been very accurate, actually 250ish  (under the age of 60 with no pre-existing conditions) as it turned out.

This is the solution to global warming, hopefully it is just a warm-up and the world will soon become communist :D

"Neil Ferguson’s team said 200million people might die from bird flu — just 292 died. They said there could be 65,000 deaths from swine flu — there were 457. We really must stop treating scientists as gods. They often get it wrong," says Brendan O’Neill

- NEW STUDY: 1.4 MILLION are expected to die globally from tuberculosis due to lockdown delaying needed care.

https://www.cnbc.com/2020/05/06/coronavirus-millions-of-people-expected-to-fall-ill-with-tuberculosis.html

- OLDER STUDY: economic downturn (of 2008) linked with at least 260K excess global cancer deaths.

https://www.hsph.harvard.edu/news/press-releases/economic-downturn-excess-cancer-deaths-atun/

And of course don't forget all the serious illness going undetected during lockdown as hospitals run at 50% capacity.

Reminder: Just 270 people under the age of 60 with no pre-existing conditions have died from covid in the UK.

All of it, everything is true. The only thing I feel as true from here is the smell of manure. Now I stop.

most of the data in the thread is either from the NHS or the ONS, both are govt controlled. You say you took all of 3 minutes on the entire thread so not enough time taken to open even a single link. carry on clapping.

Yep, it's ridiculous, it's full of conspiracy theories and links to dodgy websites, just ignore it.

haha, you've piped up again but still not able to refute any of the data of course 🙁. stick to your bbc inspired bias and carry on clapping.

The clapping and honking only lasted a minute or so here last night, maybe people have had enough of 'the clap'.

having bottled the initial (and correct) herd immunity response and instead ordering this disastrous lockdown policy the govt now needs to save faced and pretend it was right all along meaning the pubs will stay closed til the autumn.

But the issue is that people would have died unnecessarily because the NHS couldn't cope with an influx, even if it was just thousands/tens of thousands :(

Listening to clowns like Ferguson and ignoring real data from other Asian countries such as Taiwan, South Korea and Japan was the problem. Sweden got it right, no lockdown, no destruction of the economy and no collapse of the health service. And still less deaths per million than the UK, latest data May 7th see below.

    • unbelievable. Maybe this is why they lost the sub contract...
    • Market data to trade on Friday: GBP/USD; Brent UK retail sales are the focal point for Friday’s session and as such, IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor looks at GBP/USD. Then there’s consumer confidence in the States which, if strong, could take the Russell 2000 back up to a record high. https://www.ig.com/uk/market-insight-articles/market-data-to-trade-on-friday--gbp-usd--brent-210916
    • 'The UK regime knows they’d never get jab-only Vaccine Passports past a HoC vote. So they have them, as part of their Winter ‘Plan B’, to be introduced as an ‘emergency’ with just 7 days notice to pressurise sports bodies/events organisers to introduce them in advance.'    Neil Clark  @NeilClark66   2h   Meanwhile a reminder that the masks are just for the cameras;
