Blinded by Corona: How the Pandemic Ruined Britain's Health and Wealth and What to Do about It

by John Ashton - £12.99  Gibson Square Books Ltd (2020)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781783341955 | ISBN 10: 1783341955

Professor Ashton has lifelong hands-on experience and a deep scholarly understanding of the science of public health, a discipline invented in Britain. In this scathing critique he notes that nothing that the UK government has done to deal with COVID-19 is recognisable against two centuries of knowledge. Instead, it is designing untested methods at exceptional expense that have created a public-health and economic crisis never seen before.
 
The government should urgently return to the science as set out in Blinded by Corona. From February, Professor Ashton has applied its precepts to Bahrain, where he was appointed special COVID-19 adviser, and the country topped the WHO league in August. It also suffered the least disruption of the economy and social life and did not have a general lockdown.
