Johnson imposes new lockdown restrictions after UK crosses 1M COVID-19 cases

England surpassed 1 million COVID-19 confirmed cases this week which led Prime Minister Boris Johnson to announce new lockdown restrictions which would strictly levy till December 2. ’Unless we act, we could see deaths in this country running at several thousand a day,’ Johnson claimed, adding that the lockdown would begin from Thursday.

I love how governments around the world are doing this nonsense. Instead of "flatten the curve" to not overload the ICU it's all about found cases with an absolute failure to look at how many are in ICUs now, how many are dying with it and what age groups are being infected with it now. Sure cases have gone up but (with few exceptions) hospital ICUs aren't overloaded.

Oliver, some ideas for you to ponder 1. Individual humans are incapable of reasoning about non-linear processes. 2. COVID infects exponentially 3. At the very start exponential function is very close to linear. That's kind of general stuff, worth thinking about... Now on a different note - what you see today happened 2 weeks ago. What happens today will reflect on the medical system in two weeks from now. This and above ideas together mean that more responible decision making is needed. What is the best course of action? Hard to tell. I am not UK citizen. Visited only once, some 15 years ago. But whatever you decide - do it wisely and not by knee jerk reaction that media is trying to provoke.

I suggest you all have a look at what Tony Heller has to say about the coofcoof on youtoob. Lockdown is not the most effective way to deal with it, in fact, identifying the most vulnerable people and quarantining them and keeping your economy going is much better.

Don't know about the UK but hospitals are overloading in France and Belgium is sending patients to Germany.

Name one nation on Earth where these "lockdowns" have worked? And isn't it funny how lockdowns are only practiced in Western domocracies where "freedoms" are supposedly enshrined in the whole democratic process?

Buck Nasty - define "worked", please. I might be able to have an answer to your question then.
