Quote:
Given this information, what would the ‘flu hypothesis’ lead us to expect? Simply that the Government will fall flat on its face. In 2018-2019, flu cases remained elevated until the 8th week of the year – that is, some time around late-February/early-March. If this pattern holds for COVID-19, then the government lockdown will not make a dent in cases. The chart from The Financial Times will break down.
The likely Government response to this will be to get angry. When stupid people do stupid things and the stupid things lead to bad or ineffective outcomes, stupid people tend to get angry and blame others. Expect that this is what the Government will do. They will blame people for not following the lockdown and they may even ramp up restrictions or clamp down on those not seen as adequately compliant.
This could go either way. The population may side with the Government. But they also may become annoyed at being heckled. My feeling is that people are pretty sick of this and scepticism of lockdown measures is widespread. But your guess is as good as mine in this regard.
Underlining is mine.
