The model that has led the UK to change its COVID-19 strategy and has caused many more countries to implement lockdowns was based on a buggy and messy code. Experts have finally seen the original code following Neil Ferguson’s resignation, and some developers are saying that it is unreadable.

Experts are now raising concern: why did the government choose to use a model that did not receive the basic scientific concensus.
Editor’s Note: Neil Ferguson’s model single-handedly destroyed the world’s economy. Even those countries that did not impose lockdowns are bound to experience a contraction of their economic indices.
