China’s Zero COVID policy is being criticised as a means of legitimising the abandonment of public health in the West.
Focusing mainly on therapeutics and vaccines, without attempting prevention of transmission at a population level, is flawed public health.
“Brace yourselves” for rising COVID cases, the UK Government says. The scandalous failure to plan for long-term protection of lives.
Why shouldn’t we look for ways to pursue better health care in the UK? And why wouldn’t we want “to do more” to prevent deaths? Dr Deepti Gurdasani on the scale of normalisation of excess deaths in the UK media.
Suggesting that the benefit of wearing face masks at school to limit the spread of COVID-19 is more based on hope than evidence is misinformation. Even when it comes from the BBC.
All suggest that the observed reduction in severity is very likely due to the fact that a much larger proportion of omicron cases are people with prior infection.
