In this article for The Telegraph Alexandra Phillips reveals the illogical thinking behind the call for a second lockdown in the UK.
First, Phillips shows us that the new model developed by the Cambridge University used to project the impact of the SARS-CoV-2 is based on incorrect assumptions. Next, Phillips slams the model for utilizing an outdated COVID case fatality rate (CFR).
Phillips also points to the reality of an "authoritarian approach to scientific group think" which has led to the gagging and defaming of world renowned epidemiologists who propose new solutions that challenge the mainstream COVID narrative [ see The Great Barrington Declaration: Life must return to normal for the healthy, the vulnerable must be protected].
Editor's Note: From this article we see how the government is repeating its mistakes. First, they are again utilizing a secretive model that has not passed the assessment of epidemiologists. Second, the assumptions of the model are wrong. There is pre-existing immunity to COVID-19 and the current CFR of the disease is 0.025, not 0.9.[efn_note]Data from Worldometers as of writing is 1,220,807 deaths and 47,869,426 cases. The number of deaths is also in question as several countries are combining deaths WITH COVID and deaths FROM COVID.[/efn_note]
Many new articles are already pointing to an innate immunity to COVID-19 and data worldwide shows that for a majority of the population, COVID is not at all deadly [to read on cross-immunity, visit the article category The significance of host resistance.

We should beware the false assumptions spurring us on into a second lockdown
There is no such thing as ‘The Science’, only a myopic and potentially dangerous application of dogma
