The British Prime Minister was moved to intensive care on Monday night, casting a dark shadow on the policy his government initially followed to combat Covid-19.
The UK government waited too long to impose quarantine and social distancing measures, touting the notion of “herd immunity”.
Initially, Johnson simply suggested that vulnerable older people refrain from going on cruises, and that schools consider canceling international trips.
But “herd immunity” requires that around 70 percent of the population become infected. As a deliberate policy, according to knowledgable epidemiologists, it is usually achieved through a vaccination programme, and is has never been a response to a pandemic.
Johnson’s dangerous gamble was denounced by epidemiologists at Imperial College London.
Professor Derek Hill at University College London warned that it was now “very likely” Johnson would be placed on a ventilator. A patients’ life expectancy drops dramatically once placed on a ventilator.
Johnson may soon be unable to govern as he will need to be placed in a medically-induced coma.
