Here is Professor Sunetra Gupta explaining in laymans terms: a) are variants more transmissible, b) are variants more virulent, and c) are variants able to evade vaccine-induced or naturally-acquired immunity.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis holds a public health roundtable in Tallahassee Thursday morning.

The governor is joined by Dr.Scott Atlas, Professor Sunetra Gupta, Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, and Dr. Martin Kulldorff at the Florida State Capitol.

Among the panel of scientists and researchers is former Trump White House coronavirus advisor Dr. Scott Atlas. Atlas, a former Fox News commentator, resigned from his position in December after contradicting many public health officials, CBS News reports. http://bit.ly/2Q7jer9

Sunetra Gupta, October 27, 2020

Co-author of the Great Barrington Declaration Professor Sunetra Gupta has said a new study that suggests coronavirus immunity could only last a few months has not changed her mind on herd immunity.

Research from Imperial College London showed immunity was “waning quite rapidly”, which could lead to an increased risk of reinfection.

Speaking with talkRADIO's Ian Collins, Professor Gupta said scientists with differing views had been staging "ad hominem attacks" over the issue.

"I do think that universities should actually come up with a set of regulations and recommendations for how people should behave on platforms such as Twitter.”

Area of specialization

Evolutionary ecology of infectious disease systems

Research interests

My main area of interest is the evolution of diversity in pathogens, with particular reference to the infectious disease agents that are responsible for malaria, influenza and bacterial meningitis. I am also interested in the evolution of host diversity under selection from infectious disease, with an emphasis on hemoglobin disorders that protect against malaria and the MHC.

Dr. Martin Kulldorf von der Harvard University, Dr. Sunetra Gupta von der Oxford University und Dr. Jay Bhattacharya von der Stanford University sind namhafte Wissenschaftler, die die bisherige Lockdown-Politik der Regierungen kritisieren:
„Die derzeitige Lockdown-Politik hat kurz- und langfristig verheerende Auswirkungen auf die öffentliche Gesundheit“, so die Wissenschaftler in ihrer „Great Barrington Erklärung“, die von den etablierten Medien komplett ignoriert wird. Sie sagen: „Diejenigen, die nicht schutzbedürftig sind, sollten sofort wieder ein normales Leben führen dürfen.“

We spoke to Sunetra Gupta, Professor of Theoretical Epidemiology at the University of Oxford and head of the team that released a study in March which speculated that as much as 50% of the population may already have been infected and the true Infection Fatality Rate could be as low as 0.1%.

In her first major interview since the Oxford study was published, she goes further by arguing that Covid-19 has already passed through the population and is now on its way out. She said:

On antibodies:
• Many of the antibody tests are “extremely unreliable”
• They do not indicate the true level of exposure or level of immunity
• “Different countries have had different lockdown policies, and yet what we’ve observed is almost a uniform pattern of behaviour”
• “Much of the driving force was due to the build-up of immunity”

• “Infection Fatality Rate is less than 1 in 1000 and probably closer to 1 in 10,000.”
• That would be somewhere between 0.1% and 0.01%

On lockdown policy:
• Referring to the Imperial model: “Should we act on a possible worst case scenario, given the costs of lockdown? It seems to me that given that the costs of lockdown are mounting that case is becoming more and more fragile”
• Recommends “a more rapid exit from lockdown based more on certain heuristics, like who is dying and what is happening to the death rates”

On the UK Government response:
• “We might have done better by doing nothing at all, or at least by doing something different, which would have been to pay attention to protecting the vulnerable”

On the R rate:
• It is “principally dependent on how many people are immune” and we don’t have that information.
• Deaths are the only reliable measure.

On New York:
• “When you have pockets of vulnerable people it might rip through those pockets in a way that it wouldn’t if the vulnerable people were more scattered within the general population.”

On social distancing:
• “Remaining in a state of lockdown is extremely dangerous”
• “We used to live in a state approximating lockdown 100 years ago, and that was what created the conditions for the Spanish Flu to come in and kill 50m people.”

On next steps:
• “It is very dangerous to talk about lockdown without recognising the enormous costs that it has on other vulnerable sectors in the population”
• It is a “strong possibility” that if we return to full normal tomorrow — pubs, nightclubs, festivals — we would be fine.

On the politics of Covid:
• “There is a sort of libertarian argument for the release of lockdown, and I think it is unfortunate that those of us who feel we should think differently about lockdown"
• “The truth is that lockdown is a luxury, and it’s a luxury that the middle classes are enjoying and higher income countries are enjoying at the expense of the poor, the vulnerable and less developed countries.”
