In a Tuesday appearance on Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle, a former official of the World Health Organization alleged that there has not been a documented link between an increase in coronavirus cases countries and regions ending months-long lockdowns.
“As you look at all the data around the world where people have come out of lockdowns, things are actually going along quite nicely on the whole, and it’s strange,” Professor Karol Sikora, an oncologist and professor at the University of Buckingham Medical School, said during an appearance on Laura Ingraham’s show. “It’s as though something has changed, and none of us can explain why.”
“There are almost certainly other immune mechanisms going on, including T-cells, helper cells, natural killer cells, a whole range of things that we don’t understand as well as we understand antibodies,” Sikora added, noting the likelihood of increasing immunity to the virus.
Sikora expressed skepticism toward what he called “doom-laden theories” predicting a second wave of the virus coming in the fall. Sometimes, he said, a pandemic’s conclusion can be a bit mysterious and quite difficult for the medical and scientific communities to understand.
“We’ve seen [pandemics] peter out, we don’t understand this petering out, despite all the very sophisticated computer mathematical models we’ve seen, we just don’t know what’s going to happen,” he said.
For what it’s worth, the coronavirus does not appear to be “petering out” just yet.
Although most available reports do not distinguish between those who suffer severe symptoms and those who experience a more mild infection, outbreaks of the virus have cropped up in apparent connection to relaxing of social distancing observation.
Several people who attended a high school swim party in Arkansas contracted COVID-19, Governor Asa Hutchinson said at a press conference on Saturday.
“A high school swim party that I’m sure everybody thought was harmless. They’re young, they’re swimming, they’re just having activity and positive cases resulted from that,” Gov. Hutchinson said.
The governor did not provide further details on the incident or the individuals affected, but simply said it served as “an encouragement for us to be disciplined in our activities.”
