We really shouldn’t allow people like this anywhere near the formulation of public policy:
Deaths are down. That’s good.
But the fall is most heavily in hospital (22%). At home it is 12% and in care homes 19%.
The NHS is being protected but people are dying elsewhere instead.
And that does not look like a healthcare policy to me.
The entire, stated, aim all along has been to flatten the curve. We’ve a new infectious disease spreading amongst the population. A disease where the death rate can be ameliorated by good, intensive, health care. Well, we think so at least. So, we have a limit on how much good, intensive, health care we can provide. Thus we want to spread incidences of the disease ridden who require that good, intensive, care over time.
That’s the entire justification for the lockdown. To spread the burden on intensive care units. To save the NHS that is. This is working. And this is described as not being a healthcare policy?
