WSWS.ORG: Scientists set up independent committee to challenge UK government’s COVID-19 response: “there is no transparency”


A group of prominent scientists—including epidemiologists, virologists and public health experts—have challenged the Johnson government’s misuse of scientific evidence, including that used to justify ending lockdown restrictions and ordering a return to work.

The group was established by Professor David King, former chief scientific advisor to the UK government, and Professor Anthony Costello, professor of Global Health at University College London and former director of the World Health Organisation (WHO). The scientists have convened an alternative scientific advisory panel to rival the government’s official Scientific Advisory Group on Emergencies (SAGE).

The government has access to a virtually unlimited number of experts and advisors. That means that even ONE mistake is very unlikely.
The fact that a catastrophic series of “errors” have occurred makes it painfully obvious that the disaster we now see unfolding is DELIBERATE.
Same in the US.
