1/ Dr. Hendrik Streeck, top German virologist says we can beat C19 without lockdowns: “It is time to stop all this alarmism. We can outsmart the [C19] virus using all our knowledge” telegraph.co.uk/business/2020/…
2/ “It is no good looking at just [C19] case numbers any more. You have to look at what is happening in the medical wards and intensive care beds. That is a much better guide to this pandemic.”
3/ “We’ve had over 30m [C19] cases worldwide and only two described cases of reinfection. That tells you there must be more lasting immunity”…

1/ Profs Sunetra Gupta, Carl Heneghan & Karol Sikora have written an open letter to PM Boris Johnson urging him to rethink his Covid lockdown strategy spectator.co.uk/article/boris-…
2/ “our view is that the existing policy path is inconsistent with the known risk-profile of COVID-19 and should be reconsidered. The unstated objective currently appears to be one of suppression of the virus, until such a time that a vaccine can be deployed”
3/ “This objective is increasingly unfeasible (notwithstanding our more specific concerns regarding existing policies) and is leading to significant harm across all age groups, which likely offsets any benefits.”

1/Easing C19 hysteria in Indiana "using public data from the Indiana State Department of Health, StatsIndiana, and the Insurance Information Institute" ibj.com/articles/consi…
2/ "It turns out that for people younger than 20 the likelihood of dying from COVID in Indiana is a 1.7-in-a-million chance, far lower than being killed in one’s lifetime by lightning or by a dog."
3/ "The chance of drowning in a pool is 19 times greater for individuals ages 20-49 than dying from COVID. Persons 50-69 years old have a lower risk of dying from COVID than they do of dying by falling down steps or being killed in a motor vehicle accident"
