Sam Bowman on the UK’s COVID response

The Times of London – ICLE Director of Competition Policy Sam Bowman was cited in a Times op-ed by Dominic Lawson on the faulty epidemiology practiced by advocates of “herd immunity.”

As Sam Bowman, of the free-market Adam Smith Institute — and therefore far from an illiberal interventionist — observed: ‘By this point, 36,000 had died of Covid in the UK. If 100% of the UK’s population had had Covid by then, the UK would have had to have a population of 360 million people for her low-end IFR to be right.’
