See update below: Downing Street #10 didn’t follow science nor advice from SAGE experts ...
The Bull of herd immunity was advocated by the Trump administration, UK's Boris Johnson and Oxford "math" which in turn was parroted on the hour by Conservative PM Mark Rutte in The Netherlands.
Real people died unnecessarily, especially to loved one's grandparents and elderly in homes of Care. Nurses were confronted with unspeakable trauma and number of patients without the normal level of PPE. Greed and cronyism delivered tens of millions of pounds in deep pockets without delivering on substance of the contract to the NHS and Healthcare.
Take responsibility for your own failings and do not deflect the global media to go on a witch hunt for clearly political goals. Shame on you Joe Biden ... the UK, USA and EU-27 were unprepared for this pandemic. Commerce, privatization and profit markings on the stock market took priority over National Security, health standards and people's lives.
The world had been forewarned by SARS Cov-1 and earlier MERS outbreak in the Middle East.
The German scientists with a headstart to confront the Covid-19 virus did the extra research and were prepared early in January 2020. As soon as the genome data was available to the global community of virologists the tests were produced and in warp speed a very suitable vaccine from BioNTech. Yet in late March 2020 many political leaders starred in confused messaging and ditto decisions.

FOR AMERICA ONLY!
"We've got the BEST doctors, scientists, hospitals ... we're doing a great job. Very early I closed to borders to China ... saved thousands of lives!"
Public health experts warned of Covid disaster. Cummings confirms we were right | The Guardian OpEd |
On 12 March last year, Boris Johnson announced that attempts to contain Covid-19 would be halted and the country would have to accept the spread of the virus. As a global public health expert, this policy decision was baffling to me. The experience of China, Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore and Hong Kong had already shown us that Covid-19 could be contained through testing, tracing and isolation, border restrictions, social distancing and face coverings. By following this east Asian playbook, England could save lives and avoid harsh, extended lockdowns.
[Update-1] Blistering Criticism from Virologists
No transparency, decisions based on “pseudoscience” of politicians ... indeed tens of thousands people suffered and died as a result.
