The original article posted in the Daily Mail on October 30, 2020 was written by Dr. Yeadon himself. For those who may be pressed for time and just want to cut to the chase, we’ve chosen a few key sentences and phrases that cover the core issues laid out in the full article.
Three facts No 10’s experts got wrong: DR MIKE YEADON says claims that the majority of the population is susceptible to Covid, that only 7% are infected so far and virus death rate is 1% are all false
“…in the UK there are at least four known strains of coronavirus which cause the common cold. Many individuals who’ve been infected by other coronaviruses have immunity to closely related ones such as the Covid-19 virus.”
“Multiple research groups in Europe and the US have shown that around 30 per cent of the population was likely already immune to Covid-19 before the virus arrived – something which Sage continues to ignore.”
“After extensive world wide surveys, pre-eminent scientists such as John Ioannidis, professor of epidemiology at Stanford University in California, have concluded that the mortality rate is closer to 0.2 per cent. That figure means one in 500 people infected die.”
“The fact is that people don’t get reinfected. That is how the immune system works and if it didn’t, humanity would not have survived.”
“…children are rarely made ill by the virus.”
“…not only is the virus less dangerous than we are being led to believe, with almost three quarters of the population at no risk of infection, we’re actually very close to achieving herd immunity.”
