'Act now on lockdown' - Birmingham scientist calls for urgent restrictions

The Birmingham scientist who has set up the city's first testing lab for coronavirus has joined a clamour for tougher restrictions, saying we are at a critical moment. Prof Alan McNally, director of Birmingham University's world-class microbiology and infection institute, previously called for pubs, restaurants and gyms to shut and travel to be limited as part of lockdown moves to reduce infection spread. He is among the 80-plus international scientists and researchers to sign a letter published in today's The Lancet setting out the evidence for urgent action. The letter implores the Government to do more or risk continuing misery. The signatories condemn a 'herd immunity' approach as 'a dangerous fallacy unsupported by scientific evidence'.
