  1. And meanwhile in the UK… the reported death numbers are still high… and I wonder how many will have occurred ‘under the radar’? It is by no means guaranteed that later deaths are always correctly reported with Covid on the certificate, for example if acute or chronic organ damage has been caused by prior infection which may even have gone unrecorded (not detected/not tested). Doctors are no clairvoyants, have been under constant stress for over two years… if someone’s life is shortened by the consequences of an early infection originating during the times when testing was not even available (or had beed stopped), doctors would have to guess and cannot know.

    And how on earth can the government expect advice from scientists if data is scarce and/or not compiled and political opportunism is a selfish driver which makes the government ignore a pandemic? They have pitted public health against the economy. This was shortsighted because the unfolding long term damage to the economy through the wrong public health responses will be felt for a long time.
