Coronavirus: 'Of course fatigue is setting in'

Chair of Global Public Health at Edinburgh University Devi Sridhar says “the longer this [coronavirus stretches on, the worse it’s actually going to be for the economy because it’s kind of like slow strangulation”.

She also said Donald Trump’s situation shows “if you get access to early medical treatment with COVID-19, your outcomes are much better”, but adds that millions of Americans without health insurance “will not have access to that kind of medical care”.

    Remember Galileo? He was burnt at the stake for țțdaringțț to challenge his era,s official consensus.

    Lockdowns are morally wrong, most people prefer to die out of sCoVid than to die out of hunger and poverty. Poverty will bring more misery than the virus itself. Open the economy !!

    PS Why nobody challenges China, as they are deliberately declaring fake figures since April. China? No cases since April ?? Gimme a break …

    PS2 China is the only economy on plus for 2020, while we all in the West are contemplating mass unemployment. Rings a bell ?!!!!

    Asking questions of one expert without another present to debate or rebut their points is just propaganda.

    Did she not get the memo? Even the infection numbers are wrong as stated by Boris in the Star today.

    The UK population got the simple message early on and believed in the save the NHS policy but now they are disillusioned and do not trust the government. We do not have adequate testing procedures or availability, we have inadequate test and trace and as expressed in the interview only about 10% are self isolating following a positive test of contact with an infected person. The UK people will look for ways to circumvent the restrictions rather than comply with them… they can be very creative. The young under 50's see low personal risk of catching or dying from the virus and they need to work to fed families etc… this is more important to them than the lives of the elderly who, even if they are their parents or grandparents they are expendable, after all they are going to die sometime from something. The UK should have been more aggressive at the outset, starting in February, to eliminate the virus from our island. Failure to do that has cost us £billions more and will now cost a lot of jobs.

    USA has a population of over 331 million so of course their absolute numbers are going to be larger than most. Every year they have about 8,800 deaths per 1 million people. Covid accounts for 646 deaths per million or about 7.5% of the total (UK is 623 per million). And that's not allowing for the scandalous manner in which Covid deaths are counted – it's not always the underlying cause. Let's have some context here.

    5:57 Says it all reallly in the UK in May people with covid symptoms were admitted to hospital so late a third of them died, compared to South Korean and Germany which lost 1% of patients due to early intervention and admitting people to hospital with mild symptons. What were we told 'Stay home, protect the nhs….don't save lives!

    PCR "test" is a scam. Do your research. A critical mass of people that understand the limitations of the PCR "test" will bring the house of cards down. Humanity Arise!

    Absolutely, fact, we have been given bad advice, if someone recognised with COVID should get medical intervention asap not stay until things getting wors, this is really the real conspiracy that people talking about, although I don't belive in a conspiracy, however, it is wrong advice has been taken from one decision-makers person passed to other and accepted under stress as the brain is less functional when under stress. Even trace and track has been done without considering books advice, like motivation, and all other factors, which is the reason it failed as lots of people predicted.

    I really like that Snoopy print behind the person talking about a virus. Quite fancy one of those in my living room.
