‘Arbitrary’ nature of COVID-19 response will be revealed: Creighton

    Sky News Australia – Aug 18, 2020

    Sky News host Alan Jones says it is clear now Sweden and Taiwan got it right in their coronavirus response, by looking after the vulnerable and elderly, practicing good hygiene but at the same time “letting the rest get on with their lives”.

    Mr Jones said prestigious academics have suggested COVID-19 would have made little difference in the world had it not been noticed in the first place.

    Mr Jones noted the words of Stanford Professor John Ioannidis who wrote, “If we had not known about a new virus out there, and had not checked individuals with PCR tests, the number of total deaths due to “influenza like illness” would not seem unusual this year.”

    Mr Jones spoke with the Australian’s Adam Creighton about the matter.

    “Sadly I think it’s going to be many years before the conventional wisdom is that this was a grotesque policy failure, because the government of many countries is just so invested in it,” Mr Creighton said.

    “I think the truth will eventually come out … the arbitrary nature of the response will be seen.”
