Neil Lock’s Analysis of the UK’s Covid strategy!

Neil has carried out a very detailed analysis of the UK in comparison to other countries. It is well worth a look.

Check it out.

COVID-19: Europe Report, Omnibus Edition | The Ludwig von Mises Centre (misesuk.org)

Here is his conclusions.

How well has the UK done?

As an Englishman, currently resident in England, I feel a need to assess the performance of the UK over the COVID virus so far.

  • Fourth out of 45 European countries in deaths per million from COVID. Second only to Belgium among countries with comparable populations (over about 10 million). And on the way to catching up.
  • Seventh out of these 45 countries in cumulative deaths per confirmed case. Second only to Italy among countries with comparable populations.
  • Seventh out of 42 European countries in average level of lockdown through the epidemic. Second only to Italy among countries with comparable populations.
  • Only 16th out of 46 European countries in cases per million, even though the UK is one of just seven of those countries which have done more tests than their populations.
  • Third in Europe in current percentage of hospital beds occupied by COVID patients.
  • Fifth in Europe in current percentage of ICU beds occupied by COVID patients.
  • While the UK is top out of 33 European countries in people vaccinated per million, it is third from bottom in people who have had both vaccinations.

I'd like to hear from you...
