Boris Johnson wanted to reopen pubs, restaurants, zoos, outdoor attractions and non-essential shops in time for the Easter Bank Holiday weekend, until his Chief Scientific Adviser Patrick Vallance told him that doing so, could kill 91,000 people.
Papers released last night reveal that SAGE ( the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies) warned the PM that there would be at least another 30,000 coronavirus deaths and possibly as many as 91,000 caused by a dramatic spike in cases if lockdown was scrapped for Easter.
Yesterday, Johnson revealed his compromised four point roadmap out of lockdown. Tory backbenchers have criticised it for being too slow. Johnson’s strategy could see restrictions fully eased by 21 June, but only if strict conditions are met.
Chief Scientific Adviser Vallance said: “The sooner you open up everything, the higher the risk of a bigger resurgence. The slower you do it, the better.” Vallance and his SAGE colleagues are basing their caution on an Imperial College report from last week. It warned that easing restrictions at Easter would cause a massive fourth wave of cases and tens of thousands of deaths.
Patrick Vallance is a witchdoctor and Imperial College London and its resident clown Neil Ferguson have an appallingly poor record when it comes to modelling Covid scenarios. These muppets warned us early last year that 500,000 could die from the virus if no measures were taken. It has been widely debunked.
Back in 2001 Ferguson said that Foot & Mouth disease would kill 150,000 people here. Less than 200 died. “Swine Flu will kill 65,000”, Ferguson screamed back in 2009. In reality, less than 500 succumbed to it. The Swine Flu vaccine did far more damage.
Boris Johnson is not running the country. A small group of scientists are calling the shots now, no pun intended. The vast majority of the quacks on the SAGE committee have strong links to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and its subsidiaries The WHO, GAVI and SEPI.
The SAGE mission is simple, impose maximum discomfort on the population, in order to get maximum take-up of an experimental and dangerous gene therapy drug. It’s medication by coercion.
