"What’s striking about all the above predictions of infections and deaths is not just that they were all wrong. It’s the arrogance and confidence behind each of them"

It is time the lockdowns were ended. There is no excuse for these over zealous lockdowns. They are nothing to do with health and have everything to do with control. It is our right to meet, travel freely and continue normal life.
