I was under the impression that the government strategy was based on advice from the Chief Medical Officer and the Chief Science Officer. The CMO is one of England’s foremost epidemiologists – which means he is considered an authority identifying patterns of infection and researching new diseases. He has experience of tackling a virus outbreak when he played a leading role advising on the UK response to the Ebola epidemic in 2014 as chief scientific adviser to the Department for International Development. The CSO is similarly qualified for his role too.The government *could* have chosen to act on medical advice. It didn't. That is the issue. You are deflecting again, which answers my previous question.
So whose "medical" advice would you prefer the government to follow?
