"SAGE used data from WIKIPEDIA to model Covid crisis in spring, did not have a single coronavirus expert in its ranks, and wrongly predicted virus would peak in June rather than April, damning BBC documentary reveals"

Amazing really, when you think, they could have just logged in here, or on BBC comments section to find thousands of 'experts'

Do you need to be an expert to know that leaving our borders open was a good idea? Of course they did eventually close them, but we have never closed them fully.

And of course we now know that the best plave to have your eyes tested is at the opticians.

Our leaders need to set a good example and not go around shaking hands with patients in hospital.

Boris is certainly not an expert, Angela Merkel on the other hand can speak more than one language and was awarded a doctorate  for her thesis on quantum chemistry in 1986, she worked as a researcher and published several papers.

What was Boris Johnsons degree in, remind me?

Where on earth would they have found an "expert " on a disease that had only been in existence for 3 months?

Scientific expertise is built through study and analysis of data and data takes time to collect and process.

There is some good news from real experts who are involved with developing the Oxford vaccine. Their phase 2 results show their vaccine works equally as well with the over 60's as with the 18 plus age group. The Government have placed by far more orders with the Oxford project which is 100 million doses. The Oxford group are also doing deals with poorer countries which I presume will involved licencing to enable production of their vaccine to take place in many different countries. It's important for all countries to have access to the vaccines in order to finally bring the pandemic under control.

Perhaps they couldn't fit an expert in because they had to make room for Dominic Cummings and Ben Warner.

There is plenty of good news at the moment. Improved treatments, several excellent vaccine candidates and a build up of medical expertise.

 

All we need now is patience. If the idiots who won’t mask or social distance could just take a couple of months off, and if the rest of us play our part, things will begin to ease soon.

I agree.  All of us have a part to play in the fight against Covid-19.

strangely theres scientists out there that have been fighting previous outbreaks of coronavirus, sars, swine flu, bird flu, ebola etc

Who have spent their whole lives devoted to learning and fighting viruses

sadly just seen a post on facebook from south yorkshire news about a young lad that got beaten up for backing up a tram driver when he told two lads to wear masks. The whole of the comments were from young (i presume) people A: mentioning he should mind his own business and B: They shouldnt wear masks if they dont want to. the virus being a hoax and them being real truthseekers was thrown in there as well :(

I wish the Press and Journalists would act more responsibly.  They shout out the news of scientists making big steps towards a workable vaccine, wind up hysteria for an end to Covid, then days later report that that may not be the case after all, and that it may be Spring before we get a big rollout of a vaccine.  Next, we get a prospect of a break in lockdown restrictions for Xmas, so we can all get together and make jolly for a few days.  Hurrah!  This is followed by warnings that we can't, and if we do, Covid will run riot again.  The latest is that more people than ever will break restrictions come what may around Xmas, as we all need a break.  Many will, because that's what the press have predicted!
