Man. Is COVID19 brutal or what? Not only is it killing people and the economy, but it’s killing pointy-headed British government scientists’ careers.

Get some, Dr. Ferguson.

How do you like that?

At least he’s sorry, though:

Prof Ferguson told the Telegraph: “I accept I made an error of judgment and took the wrong course of action. I have therefore stepped back from my involvement in Sage [the government’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies].

“I acted in the belief that I was immune, having tested positive for coronavirus, and completely isolated myself for almost two weeks after developing symptoms.

“I deeply regret any undermining of the clear messages around the continued need for social distancing to control this devastating epidemic. The Government guidance is unequivocal, and is there to protect all of us.”

Well, sort of.

Heh.

Yeah. We’d agree with that assessment.
