UK’s coronavirus lockdown was ‘futile and hasn’t saved any lives’, claim leading experts [LINK].
Meanwhile, Swedish researcher Dr Johan Giesecke has blasted Britain’s lockdown as “futile”.
The epidemiologist, who advises the World Health Organisation, said the UK’s death toll suggested imposing social restriction measures is not the best method of tackling the pandemic.
Sweden has not forced a lockdown, keeping open many schools, restaurants and businesses while the UK went into a complete shutdown on March 23.
Yet the most recent figures show that more than 10 times as many Brits have died of Covid-19 than in Sweden where there has been fewer 3,000 fatalities.
