Retired chief EU epidemiologist: “How long can you keep a lockdown in a democracy?” – UK Column

the Swedish government, decided early in January that the measures we should take against the pandemic should be evidence-based. And when you start looking around for the [basis for the] measures that are being taken now by different countries, you find that very few of them have a shred of evidence base. One we know, that’s been known for 150 years or more, is that washing your hands is good for you and good for others when you’re in an epidemic. But the rest — like border closures, school closures, “social distancing” — there’s almost no science behind most of these.
