Just a few weeks ago, British Epidemiologist Neil Ferguson published a viral “study” that predicted several million people would die from the Chinese Coronavirus, but he is now making a stunning reversal.
His findings went viral a few weeks ago, which threw the whole world into a panic. However, Ferguson is now walking back his claims, saying that the predicted death rate will be much lower than initially believed.
Reporter Alex Berenson summarized this reversal in a series of tweets, and it is great news for anyone who is looking for the proverbial “light at the end of the tunnel”.
Here is the easy-to-read text version of his tweets that you can see below:

1/ This is a remarkable turn from Neil Ferguson, who led the Imperial College authors who warned of 500,000 UK deaths – and who has now himself tested positive for #COVID;
2/ He now says both that the U.K. should have enough ICU beds and that the coronavirus will probably kill under 20,000 people in the U.K. – more than 1/2 of whom would have died by the end of the year in any case bc they were so old and sick.
3/ Essentially, what has happened is that estimates of the viruses transmissibility have increased – which implies that many more people have already gotten it than we realize – which in turn implies it is less dangerous.
4/ Ferguson now predicts that the epidemic in the U.K. will peak and subside within “two to three weeks” – last week’s paper said 18+ months of quarantine would be necessary.
5/ One last point here: Ferguson gives the lockdown credit, which is *interesting* – the UK only began ita lockdown 2 days ago, and the theory is that lockdowns take 2 weeks or more to work.
6/ Not surprisingly, this testimony has received no attention in the US – I found it only in UK papers. Team Apocalypse is not interested.full story
