24 Aug 2020 – “The) lockdown was a panic measure and I believe history will say trying to control Covid-19 through lockdown was a monumental mistake on a global scale, the cure was worse than the disease,” said infectious diseases expert and University of Edinburgh professor Mark Woolhouse. The decision to lockdown in March was a “crude measure” enacted because “we couldn’t think of anything better to do.”

Woolhouse is now calling on the government to unlock society before more damage is done.

“I believe the harm lockdown is doing to our education, health care access, and broader aspects of our economy and society will turn out to be at least as great as the harm done by COVID-19,” said Woolhouse.

Richard Sullivan, professor of cancer at King’s College London, previously warned that there will be more excess cancer deaths over the next 5 years than the number of people who die from coronavirus in the UK due to the disruption caused by the coronavirus lockdown, which is preventing cancer victims from getting treatment.
