Imperial College’s Neil Ferguson defends UK lockdown against criticism from Swedish epidemiologist—you can probably guess where this went.


The highlights of Neil Ferguson’s interview are listed in the articles bullet points if you don’t want to listen to the full interview.

Ferguson didn’t really need to say much in defense of the UK’s lockdown. The Swedish epidemiologist’s criticism of Ferguson’s Imperial epidemiological model and the UK’s strict lockdown was JUST SLIGHTLY UNDERMINED by the disastrous results of Sweden’s “do nothing” public health strategy. Sweden ranks #14 in the world for total deaths, right below Canada (which as 4X the population of Sweden) AND has recently slid into 8th place for deaths per million citizens. The United States is #10.
