h/t Dr. Willie Soon; According to Professor “Lockdown” Neil Ferguson, the unusual concentration of Omicron cases in Scotland suggests the outbreak may have been seeded by the COP26 Climate Conference in Glasgow.
Professor Neil Ferguson warns a full lockdown might be needed to stop Omicron overwhelming NHS as he says super-variant may have been seeded at COP26 summit in Glasgow
- Ferguson – who was dubbed Prof Lockdown – said return of stay-at-home orders ‘certainly might be possible’
- Growing concerns about UK Christmas freedoms after number of British Omicron cases rose to 437 yesterday
- No10 is already drawing up new plans for Britons to work from home and offices to shut, according to reports

The Government scientist, whose modelling bounced No10 into the original lockdown last spring, said the return of stay-at-home orders ‘certainly might be possible’ if the mutant strain threatens to overwhelm the NHS.
Omicron cases are concentrated in London and in Scotland. As Britain’s major transport hub, London has often been the UK’s epicentre for new variants. But Professor Ferguson claimed Omicron might have been seeded in Glasgow at the Cop26 climate summit at the start of November in Glasgow.
Personally I’m surprised the virus wasn’t killed off by all the COP26 private jet diesel exhaust fumes, but clearly if COP events are going to spread new Covid variants, all future COP events should be cancelled.
