Professor claims Government has ‘terrorised’ Britons into believing coronavirus will kill them

Professor Robert Dingwall, a sociologist who has advised UK governments for thirty years has made huge claims that HM’s government have “effectively terrorised” Britons “into believing that this is a disease that is going to kill you” even though most those infected will not be hospitalised.

He told today’s Chopper’s Politics podcast, that the Government should let people come within 1.5 metres of each other inside and outside as part of measures to ease lockdown.

Prof Dingwall is based at Nottingham Trent University and sits on the Government’s New and Emerging Respiratory Virus Threats Advisory Group (Nervtag), which feeds into its Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage).

Speaking for himself, he said: “We have this very strong message which has effectively terrorised the population into believing that this is a disease that is going to kill you. And mostly it isn’t.

“Eighty per cent of the people who get this infection will never need to go near a hospital. The ones who do go to hospital because they are quite seriously ill most of them will come out alive – even those who go into intensive care.

“We have completely lost sight of that in the obsession with deaths, the human interest stories about deaths, the international comparisons about death rates, the opportunities for intrepid television journalists to put on lots of PPE and go into high tech where people are acutely ill.

“All of that helps to create this climate of fear and I am not surprised in a sense that the Government might take a rather cautious approach to try to unlock the lockdown – simply because they would really be nervous that if they pushed it too quickly it would like giving a party and nobody came.”

The academic continued: “There is a fair degree of consensus now among people who are more expert on these things than I am that outdoor transmission is negligible…

“Personally I think we could quite safely go to 1.5 metres which seems to be an internationally acceptable standard, inside and outside.”

Prof Dingwall said he had been told by a senior public health specialist that “we knew it was one metre but we doubled it to two because we did not think the British population would understand what one metre was and we could not trust them to observe it so we doubled it to be on the safe side”.

Speaking on the podcast in relation to this he said: “If you think of it as a circle around a person that you are trying to protect, if it is 2 metres, that circle is 12 square metres, 1.5 metres that circle is roughly 7 sq m, if you come down to 1 metre it is three and a bit sq m.

“You can immediately see what difference that makes to any shop, any leisure or retail place. As you reduce the distance the area that is sterilised shrinks quite dramatically.”

He added: “Fleeting contacts are really irrelevant – if a jogger runs past you in the park, this is not a big deal.

“If you are standing next to somebody in the supermarket and you both take a jar of instant coffee off the same shelf, and you reach up and your hands touch, you put it in your trolley and you turn away and go on your separate paths. That again is not something to get unduly worked up about.”
