The War Room’s Raheem Kassam writes the following in the National Pulse:
Telling your friend they’re about to be hit by a bus will usually force them out of the way. If they came up to you afterwards and said, “Hey, that bus didn’t hit me! You’re a liar!” you’d probably be pretty peeved.
You’d probably also wish you hadn’t told them a bus was about to hit them.
Enter the throngs of internet people, who today have seized on re-reporting and mis-reporting of comments made by Professor Neil Ferguson at the Imperial College London – one of the world’s leading authorities on the spread of the coronavirus.
The Imperial model has been pretty clear since its original report on March 16th: do nothing and hundreds of thousands in the UK will die. Do something and we can lower it. Do everything and we can almost entirely avoid catastrophe.
On the basis of this, many nations concurred, and did “everything” possible to avoid getting hit by the coronavirus as hard as Wuhan, or Italy, or Spain.
