UK Government Scientist Says Lockdown a “Monumental Mistake on a Global Scale”

“It was never going to change anything fundamentally.”
– Infectious diseases expert and University of Edinburgh professor Mark Woolhouse

24 Aug 2020 – “The) lockdown was a panic measure and I believe history will say trying to control Covid-19 through lockdown was a monumental mistake on a global scale, the cure was worse than the disease,” said infectious diseases expert and University of Edinburgh professor Mark Woolhouse. The decision to lockdown in March was a “crude measure” enacted because “we couldn’t think of anything better to do.”

Woolhouse is now calling on the government to unlock society before more damage is done.

“I believe the harm lockdown is doing to our education, health care access, and broader aspects of our economy and society will turn out to be at least as great as the harm done by COVID-19,” said Woolhouse.

Richard Sullivan, professor of cancer at King’s College London, previously warned that there will be more excess cancer deaths over the next 5 years than the number of people who die from coronavirus in the UK due to the disruption caused by the coronavirus lockdown, which is preventing cancer victims from getting treatment.

  1. the claims re cancer deaths?
    uk usa survival rates after chemo/rad etc are less than brilliant for most cancrs
    but it sounds good ..
    meanwhile in aus the extremely old aged deaths from nursing home will also drop soon as they run out of residents.
    sad truth is most were likely to die soon anyway, very few were just there due to good health but frailty.
    the deaths are actually prob not much higher than normal
    but “you cant SAY that” it upsets people…

    • Laurel, Cancer treatment was postponed in the U.K and only restarted about a month ago, also none urgent surgery was cancelled and is only just restarting

  2. An excellent summation of the situation. We cannot ‘legislate’ against a virus and lockdowns cannot be 100% enforced.That is because essential workers, among others, are required to go to work, leave their homes and safe places and continue to function amid pandemics –and guess what? Many essential workers are healthcare providers.
    Many of these people are going to become infected no matter how expertly PPEs and other means are used, simply because these people are human and some will inadvertently break the barrier through misuse, or, through neglect in applying their gear properly. This is how ‘leaks’ in the sysem so often occur.

    The end result is that when viruses that are so easily transmitted as COVID-19 and the typical influenzas are, millions of people around the world will inevitably become infected. Breakdowns in the system occur! That is how pandemics happen.

    The question that was initially considered was: what are the most effective methods for altering the progression of the virus?
    ‘Flattening the curve’ became the goal, and initially spared critical care services from overload but it also prolonged the pandemic.

    Only when, and if, an effective treatment or vaccine is developed before the natural course of the disease is completed can the otherwise inevitable number of infected people and deaths be prevented: that is to say, barring a major breakthrough, the pandemic will infect and kill about the same number of people whether a lock-down is in place or not. In principle, without a lock-down the virus will spread more quickly but the pandemic will end sooner. Slowing the spread, the goal of lock-downs just means that the same number of susceptible people will die, only later in pandemic.

    We were naïve to think we could stop this. Our politicians acted before thinking this through, as did many of the ‘experts’ in infectious disease, acting in god-like roles, without any Heavenly Powers available to them.

    The worst case scenario, and inevitable as it now turns out, was for flares and smolders to keep occurring globally, in a prolonged and miserable fashion, resulting in economic and health chaos for all of us.

    If the vaccines in trials are very effective, the course of this pandemic may change, and three cheers for that. If not, we MUST return to whatever the new normal is going to be. The current ill-conceived mess is not a viable option. The proof of that is obvious to all, except for those who refuse to see it.

  3. Once again, Result = Intent.

    Since the Result seems to be the wrecking of the Economies of the Western Nations, then this could have been the Intent.

    • Cliffhild,
      What we are seeing now is not the intent, not the desired result– but only a step towards it. The full intent is a global order which has no citizen representation. It is to be run like a giant company, with the wishes of a tiny oligarchy enforced by impersonal computerized edict.

      Digital money provides the means of absolute dependence on the system. Total monitoring of every individual to be accomplished by 5G satellites acting upon an invisible tatoo identification.

      A chip will be updateable per the earlier animal studies. This leaves all decisions regarding the health or continuance of any individual outside of his own control.

      All decisions will be taken by the global company– from the type of work assigned to the food to be allowed. There are already indications that 2-tiered feeding is to be accomplished with “management” alone to be permitted meat. Travel or meeting with others to be by permission only. No cars; human settlements to be close to rail transport. Easily monitored stack & pack apartments. No single-family homes and certainly no one living in the countryside. Like the Chinese “empty cities” which were subsequently filled by forced migrants from the countryside.

      What is projected is a complete overthrow of rights. Indeed the UN Charter for many years has stated that rights which would limit the power of the Charter are not recognised.

      All of this and more– unless we prevent this “result.”

  4. The globalists are very keen that Britain should suffer economically after Brexit. Things were looking quite good – but the economy has now been savaged, ensuring that next year will be far worse than it would have been without the “lockdowns”, which were absurd from the outset. You quarantine the SICK not the healthy!
    Johnson was always a tepid supporter of Brexit.

  5. The IMF, The WEF, The UN and The Climate Policy Initiative had programs alreasy fully established to alter the entire global economy in mid April.

    The Pandemic was declared in mid March but somehow an intricate “Green Build Back Better” program was fleshed out a month later. Ever seen anything come out of any international, multi-institution entity that fast? Let alone such a sophisticated plan?

    This is not about stopping the spread of a virus. Not even a little. This is a takedown.

    What is the Climate Policy Initiative? A Geotge Soros organization that coordinates the “Greening” of the Global reset.

    This all must be stopped.

  6. Greatrighthope, I believe the only way to stop it is by arrests, Those who have fraudulently subsidized the global warming hoax are identified in the Senate investigation into the prime movers. They are a group of billionaire foundations specified in the document.
    It is a misnomer to describe them as leftists; after all, they are ultra-capitalists who’ve stolen govt power– i.e., fascists.

    Also we need desperately a law making powerful media companies answerable for false or misleading reporting. Or if we could just stop the censoring by mega internet platforms like youtube, facebook, etc.

    There must be some legal challenges already taking place regarding these two items. Does anyone have any info?
