This morning, UK broadcaster Sky News declared “Lockdown is working! COVID-19 infection rate plummets in England.” “One of the largest and most authoritative coronavirus surveys has found that infections are quickly falling in England, confirming that lockdown is working to suppress the virus,” states the report.
The report claims that vaccines aren’t a factor in the reduction in deaths and cases because they are observed across all age groups.
However, as Dr. Eli David highlighted, COVID deaths in Sweden began dropping off even sooner without the need for harsh lockdown measures.
“The strict lockdown in the UK was so effective that it stopped the spread of Covid in Sweden as well,” joked David.
In comparison to the UK, which imposed a full national lockdown in early January, Sweden refused to follow suit, only encouraging voluntary social distancing measures.
