It was not known and will not be known at the time what was the best way to contain the Corona, the professor Mark Woolhouse, an infectious disease expert at the University of Edinburgh, said the damage caused by the closure resulting from the outbreak of the Corona virus outweighed its benefit.
He added that Corona is “highly discriminatory,” as some people are more at risk than others, including the elderly and people with severe health problems. According to the Guardian newspaper.
He stressed that the generalization of the severity of the virus and the consequent isolation of all and the application of closure procedures in various parts of the country caused severe damage. “It is this failure to understand the wide differences in individual responses to Corona that has led to Britain’s erroneous responses to the emergence of the disease and its imposition of a long-term national blockade,” he added.
To this, he added, “we have caused severe damage to our children and young people who have been robbed of their education, work and normal life, as well as damaging their material future, as they inherited a mountain. record of public debt “.
Herd immunity again
However, Woolhouse rejected requests to fully open up the company, while allowing the coronavirus to spread among people to gain herd immunity.
The UK expert added that the UK has spent a fortune killing the virus and will continue to pay the resulting debts for generations to come, while it has spent next to nothing to protect the vulnerable in society, considering the closures indicate the failure of public health. policies.
