“One NHS document suggests that, two weeks ago, Faculty considered running a computer simulation to assess the impact of a policy of “targeted herd immunity”. https://t.co/gYeCZ9QgDM

So Cummings/Johnson's lethal "herd immunity" experiment was most certainly not based on any clinical evidence, but is now killing over 1000 people a day in the UK. How long before they are prosecuted ? I ask on behalf of the 10,000 who have so far died , and those who will die

A quick glance at #TomorrowsPapersToday suggests a pretty even split between the Boris Easter Miracle and UK Worst in Europe. Tricky week for the government lies ahead.

It is great to see Boris Johnson recover. Great to see him thank two nurses; one from New Zealand (Go Jenny from Invercargill) and one from Portugal. Great to hear him thank the NHS so strongly too.
Hopefully now he’ll reflect on his policy and rhetoric in the future too. pic.twitter.com/FhDClKpeV2

Anyone else think they’re protecting brand Boris through the worst of this nightmare in order for him to escape the flak when it eventually flies?
I can’t believe Cummings & the Tory’s wouldn’t have an out-game planned.

I don't understand the British media. I really, really don't.
Basic things: Ireland and the UK started this pandemic with roughly the same number of ICU beds (6.5 per 100,000 for Ireland, 6.6 per 100,000 in the UK).
If anything, the UK was slightly better off. pic.twitter.com/owhHMUZccU

Failing to hold Dominic Cummings & Boris Johnson to account: what I learned. You have to act now. After the event is after the event. You’ll be told to ‘move on’, to ‘get over it’ to ‘look forward’. This is already happening now. While people are dying.

Trump didn’t hedge on the Navarro email. He wasn’t ambiguous. He said he didn’t know about it. And then said didn’t ask to see it either. Why would he ask to see it if he wasn’t aware of it? It all comes out eventually. https://t.co/aFN8A68b1i

President Trump’s trade advisor, Peter Navarro, calls the suggestion that there were warnings of catastrophic consequences from a pandemic “fake news.” But after our interview, a late January memo he wrote surfaced warning almost exactly that. https://t.co/qRXfk86rzx pic.twitter.com/YXCrEOV1af

Peter Navarro could have had a commendable legacy-the guy who in lateJan warned Trump a looming pandemic cd kill a half million Americans. We all know that for the next 2 months Trump did nothing but spin fictional narratives. And now Navarro is just another liar for Trump

President Trump is a master storyteller. He casts himself as the hero and chooses different villains every day. All of us should see his briefings for what they are — sales pitches. They're more like infomercials than accurate sources of info. pic.twitter.com/mAh7hx9322
