The experts and powers that be:
all seemed to catch it, while lecturing us on how not to
said no evidence of human to human transmission
said it wasn't airborne, then it was
said little risk of spread at large indoor events, then outlawed them
said little risk of spread at large outdoor events, then outlawed them
put perspex screens everywhere which block airflow, and do nothing for airborne particles coming over the top
said masks are useless then enforced the wearing of them
decided public health policy with mathematical models which routinely get it wrong
patronised the public with silly slogans and songs to wash your hands to
over ventilated people, and bought shedloads of unused machines
built nightingale hospitals which were clearly never going to be used
went around shaking people hands in a pandemic
allowed the infected into old peoples homes
allowed the uninfected to get infected in hospitals.
have moved the age at which you can get certain approved vaccines due to safety worries, another mathematical model.
have as far as I know done little or nothing to assess the cleanliness,safety,airflow,practices of the hospitality/leisure industry which is about to open up.
People who question this aren't the same people claiming the vaccinated can stick spoons to their heads. You don't need any expertise or hindsight to question it, it was obvious from the start.
next slide please.. Smart motorways.
Smart motorways are, indeed, a dumb idea. But they are purely a political decision, no one forced it on anyone. A virus however, doesn't follow a political agenda, it follows biology.
So, given your "clear" expertise on the subject, explain Brazil, and how no action at all has been better or worse than your (factually inaccurate in places) assessment of places that have dealt with the pandemic.
