Neil Ferguson, Doctor Behind Coronavirus Doomsday Imperial College Study, Revises Predictions | The Daily Caller
Renowned epidemiologist Neil Ferguson of the Imperial College suggested in his model last week the U.S. and the U.K. would have to continue to shut down for 18 months to avoid catastrophic death, but testified in front of the U.K’s Parliamentary select committee on science and technology earlier this week that he expects the country to be able to flatten the curve within 2-3 weeks. The Imperial College predicted that over 500,000 people could die in the U.K., and over two million could die in the U.S., but Ferguson said he now expects the death toll in Britain to be under 20,000, according to NewScientist.
Well this seems important. Expect to see this headlined on CNN and MSNBC. (satire)
