Another mystery is how so many left wingers have gravitated to lockdown support when lockdowns predominantly hurt the poor and underprivileged.
Based on the accumulating evidence coming in from medics, epidemiologists, psychiatrists, economists, and educators, I am willing to bet that lockdowns will go down in history as one of the most catastrophic policy errors of modern times.
“Beware of forecasters. Humans have a large appetite for forecasts and predictions across a broad spectrum of domains. People must recognize that the accuracy of forecasts in systems with phase transitions is dismal, even by so-called experts.” Think Twice by Michael Mauboussin
100K dead figure for Covid isn't reliable. It's deeply misleading. It combines data from two seasons (2019-20 and 2020-21). It includes people who did not die with covid at all. It includes many who died with it but not because of it. It doesn't note 50K excess deaths in 2017-18.
