In this article written by Lucy Johnston for Express, Oxford Professor Carl Henegan says that people misunderstand and exaggerate the risk of COVID, and the fear instilled in people is a real problem. Henegan says that it is the government’s responsibility to explain the true risk of COVID, which, according to data, is relatively low.
Henegan says that we have lost focus on the critical issue of the disease’s impact, and goes on to say that governments need to adapt an evidence-based approach. He says that evidence shows that despite the reopening of some countries, a deadly outbreak has not occured. Henegan also says that the increase in the number of infections is not something to panic about as it has not corresponded with an increase in critical admissions and deaths. Even with the increase in infection detections, Henegan says that it does not mean that the disease is out of control as many of these cases will be asymptomatic or not serious.
Lastly, Henegan stresses that lockdowns, even localized ones are dangerous. During the lockdown, Henegan says that non-COVID deaths increased. Also, lockdowns force people in their homes, which also increases the risk of infection among vulnerable members of the family.
Editor’s Note: Those who truly examine the data on COVID will come to the same conclusions – that COVID is not as deadly as we first thought, that lockdowns increases risk of infection (among other concerns), and that it is now safe to go back to normal.
Hence, it remains a surprise for us that despite all the evidences to the contrary, people insist the only way we can go back to normal is through a vaccine. It also surprises us that so many people are deluded with the belief that we can have zero infections [Zero infection will never be possible as long as we use the RT-PCR to detect the virus, see Why COVID-19 is guaranteed to never end and Faulty COVID-19 tests: Why prisoners love their jailers and never-ending lockdowns]. Moreover, zero infection is undesireable as it means that we will continue to be vulnerable to the disease as this means that immune systems have not learned how to protect us from the virus, see Understanding the immune system of children may be the key to understanding susceptibility to SARS-COV-2].
Are governments turning a blind eye to the evidence? Or is this a testament of their ignorance?
