UK Covid crisis – what the scientists say

We spoke to Prof Yvonne Doyle, medical director at Public Health England. (Subscribe:

We began by asking her why we could be looking at more deaths this winter than in the first phase of the disease.

We were then joined by Prof Liam Smeeth, a clinical epidemiologist at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. He’s also a GP.

    So how do people know they have cv? When cv and flu are the same. The uk government and the CDC down graided cc to the flu. Why ant you reporting this?

    Ch4 ‘forgot’ to put this in context so I will. NHS data shows that only 39 people under the age of 40 have died directly from Covid. Scaremongering season has begun…

    We have kept in our own small social groups and family bubbles and followed the rules and no one we know has had covid. Why can’t everyone else just do that?

    Channel 4 persuing their anti government stance yet again. "You cannot teach stupid" if you listen the message is very clear. Imposing a blanket lockdown makes no sense …. complete lunacy. It is not at all clear that it is working in level 3 areas anyway …. why would closing the entire country be any better?

    No figures given on how many people are returned back into the community after hospitalisation.

    Maybe if we made a few adjustments to the law on tobacco. We could save 7 million lives globally each year. But are we really concerned with people dying prematurely.

    Decline in COVID19 deaths might also be mainly due to the full stops on Trump's FAKE "cures" as Hydroxychloroquine and BLEACH!

    In fact FYI, I am 100% certain that NY and NY's death tolls were initially that high mainly due to the Trump admin FLOODING those "Liberal" areas intentionally with said heart-crushing anti-Malaria medication.

    Other than that little ignored medical and political detail though #AskDerrick wouldn't what we right now in Oct 28 2020 know about the virus and the recent ongoing strong American increases in hospitalizations contradict the Trump admin's ongoing "Herd Mentality" uhm I mean Herd Immunity approach?

    Then the next consequential question would be: wouldn't giving businesses and big Pharma "immunity" WHILE knowingly obstructing adequate pandemic response, for months as pertaining in the #WoodwardTapes , not in fact constitute an attempt of Planetary Genocide by president Trump and his ilks?

    FYI, yes it does! 😊😷🤗😘😍

    C. Provide ALL medical personnel and carers in homes for the elderly with PPE…PPE…PPE!
    D. Apply the HAMMER i.e. a FULL LOCKDOWN for a short spell, support the needy during this phase and then learn to DANCE with the virus until a vaccine becomes available!

    America and UK was wrong from the start
    We all have a rise of cases because
    Schools were open
    Bars was open
    No mask mandate
    That’s why We are in trouble

    It's winter the NHS is always overrun now that pneumonia and influenza are being included in the coronavirus figures as stated on the public health england website of course the figures are goin to go up, even if coronavirus didn't exist there will be days of 1000+ . You need to ask yourself why are they trying to fool you, what is there real agenda.

    So channel 4 are with borris on this today
    1600 dead everyday in the uk, 10000 a week, 600.000 a year all non covid, 18.000 die from flu a year, 50 a day, 350 a week all non covid so lockdown should be permanent according to the science

    It’s either full lockdown or everyone out and about,full lock down get virus down,everyone out and about gets it and maybe it disappears.

    I wonder what the Barrington Scientists are saying now, and what their views on Long Covid are? Big answers are needed for the post-viral fatigue, that for many seem to have no end in sight after six months.

    There are no excess deaths from last year this month. The flu killed more in the first three weeks. Why does the media never report this?

    Can British journalists STOP being so combative. Your job is to ELICIT not argue! We decide on what's rubbish because we can cross check. We're not the same as an American electorate. Give us SOME credit!

    I did not quite get an answer there from Professor Yvonne Doyle. Was this just me or is she being evasive?
    I thought the whole point was to get a cohesive answer.

    The tier system doesn't work, we need a national lockdown now so we can have some kind of normality for Xmas because if we don't we will be locked down then. It's not hard to see if you've kept up with this since the beginning.

    When the human race interfere with nature, ie genetically modifying food and crops and mosquitos…you know it will run out of control exponentially!
