We’ve been told repeatedly by government that the ‘lockdown’ and shutting down entire economies and societies is all about “saving lives.” However, upon closer examination, this proposition by government does not appear to be as straightforward as the popular sound bite might suggest.

Were these policies really thought through by our political leaders, or merely driven by wild speculation, a hyperbolic media and general mass panic? Do they even make any scientific sense?
