Why would they need to infect people? Surely they could just wait for the billions of people who will inevitably test positive by then if we follow SAGE's model.
Nothing to do with the ratings crash after they got woke then. That's good to know.
Bet they don't discredit the Russia Collusion conspiracy theory or the Tump's a white supremacist conspiracy theory pushed by the MSM
Good luck with that. Boris has decided to destroy the entire country.
And this is the level of competence we sadly expect from publicly funded bodies. I'll include both SAGE and the government themselves in that generalisation.
PCR positives are irrelevant. They appear to be around 90% false positives. All that matters is hospitalisations and deaths which remain really low.
So only 10% of 'cases' show any symptoms at all - divide government case figures by 10 to get the real picture.
"Local authorities would get £1 per head of population if placed into tier two and £2 per head for tier three."
So councils are incentivised to get things as draconian as possible in their area. What could possibly go wrong?
We're doomed, DOOMED!

Changes in tiny numbers give huge percentages - great for making trivial numbers big and scary.
