A Royal College Ledge professor whose name the infamous computer modeling asked Britain for a lockout earlier this year has finally admitted where the motivation behind the drastic measures originated. Hint: This is exactly where the virus originated.
In an interview with the Times of London on Saturday, Professor Neil Ferguson said the lockdown was inspired by communist China. Ferguson said he was skeptical at first, then surprised to see a downdown in Europe and then in the UK.

In the year 2019, at the time when someone was infected by bats, no European country took seriously the possibility of an epidemic plan to stop the country.
Then, the same thing China did. “I think people’s perceptions of what’s possible in terms of control changed dramatically between January and March,” says Professor Ferguson.
“They claimed to have pinched the turn. I was skeptical at first. I thought it was a huge cover-up by the Chinese. But as the data was received it became clear that it was an effective policy. “
Then, like anger boiling over on the map, the infection is being sown all over the world, however, discussing whether it will be effective here. “It’s a communist one-party state,” we said. We thought we couldn’t escape with it in Europe. “One of those boils in February came just below the Alps.” And then Italy did it. And we realized we could. “
They saw an opportunity to seize power and they took it.
Ferguson published a report using modeling in mid-March predicting that 2.2 million Americans and half a million Britons would die if the two countries did not implement a strict lockdown. Defective modeling played a crucial role in both countries’ decision to implement a lockdown earlier this year.
