Professor Sunetra Gupta: 'Lockdowns are a luxury of the affluent…the UK cannot afford it'



Professor of theoretical epidemiology Sunetra Gupta has criticised the planned return to a Covid tier system in December.

Speaking with talkRADIO’s Julia Hartley-Brewer, the Great Barrington Declaration co-author said it “still leaves the doors open to the enormous harms of lockdown”.

She added: “Lockdowns are a luxury of the affluent…the UK cannot afford it.”

It comes ahead of Boris Johnson setting out plans for a strengthened three-tier system of restrictions to replace England national lockdown and to pave the way for a limited relaxation at Christmas.
