HUGE NEWS: The very same man who brought about the shutdown with his extreme claims about massive death tolls has now massively backtracked:

Up to two thirds of people who die from coronavirus in the next nine months are likely to have died this year from other causes, a government advisor has said.

Professor Neil Ferguson, who is recovering at home from Covid-19, told the Science and Technology Committee that experts were now expecting around 20,000 deaths, although said it may turn out to be a lot less.

But he said that many of those deaths were likely to be old and seriously ill people who would have died from other conditions before the end of the year.
This is the very man, the man from Imperial College, who said there would be 410 000 to 550 000 UK deaths (and 2.2 million in the US) if we didnít bring in all the measures, including five months of total lockdown. A claim based on his own work, and the paper he was lead author on. Now heís massively changed his tune. Suddenly itís no big deal.

I think he has a point.

I read the other day that a man aged 98 died from it. He could have died anyway without coronavirus or could have died from the flu, also?

Clutching at straws but I also saw some Nobel guy - may have been on here come to think of it - was saying that it won't go exponential all the way as people move in relatively small social circles.

I've got my daughter on lockdown - only coming into contact with 3 people until it's all over.

When this is over, I'm doing loads of things including a Fred Meet.

The unfortunately named Mr Pfister there, about to discover nominative determinism.
