For all those who said in March that UK must wait for lockdown because “people won’t like it so we have to start as late as possible”: if we had locked down 2-3 weeks earlier we would have entered lockdown with only 10% or even 5% of the actual cases we had
(don’t look at confirmed cases they’re only a fraction of actual cases). We therefore would have had a much lower base to get down from and could be out of lockdown maybe 6-8 weeks earlier will happen now. So way less time in lockdown!
Fundamental lack of understanding of exponential growth! and we were “following the science”?
