The Lancet’s Richard Horton calls for international pandemic inquiry

How do you rate the UK’s coronavirus response?

We were too late with everything. In The Lancet, we published five papers in the last week of January that told the entire story: a new virus, rapidly killing people, human-to-human transmission. We could have mobilised more quickly.

Didn’t you also underestimate the risks? You tweeted on 24 January that the virus had low pathogenicity?

On 24 January, there were newspaper headlines that were in danger of fostering a panic: things like “Killer virus”. Panic isn’t a very good public health response.

How should the UK have reacted?

The World Health Organization (WHO) called a public health emergency of international concern on 30 January, and then [in the UK] in the next six weeks, the government took its eye off the ball.

Is that with the benefit of hindsight?

Nobody can say we didn’t know this was coming. Pandemics are number one on our national risk register. Don’t you think there is an obligation to be prepared for that? We know that the conditions for pandemics have been increasing – to such an extent that there was Exercise Cygnus in October 2016, when we [simulated] an influenza pandemic that killed hundreds of thousands.

The message from that was that the country wasn’t prepared. There needed to be a pretty dramatic scaling-up of intensive care facilities, and so on. And ministers didn’t pick up on how important that was. Yet we had chief medical officers standing up saying that we were well-prepared for this pandemic. Although individually they were excellent scientists, the system in which they worked failed. We are talking about tens of thousands of deaths that were preventable.

What do you think of lockdown being eased in the UK?

We are playing roulette. You shouldn’t be releasing lockdown until you have got test, trace and isolate 100 per cent secure. We have an R value that is very close to one. I understand why we are doing it, because of the economic pressure, but it is a gamble and if that goes wrong, people will have died unnecessarily. What I am really frightened of is if we get a flare-up like the first wave again, it is going to be another 10 weeks of lockdown.

Why do you accuse US president Donald Trump of a crime against humanity for defunding the WHO?

The US government is the largest single funder of the WHO. That means it is damaging an organisation whose primary duty is to protect the health and well-being of the world’s most vulnerable populations.

Aren’t there valid criticisms of the WHO?

Yes. I think the WHO performed superbly during January. But after it declared a public health emergency of international concern on 30 January, it should have called an emergency [session of the] World Health Assembly and worked out a global strategy. You have every country in the world struggling to work out its own strategy. Some have acted superbly, like New Zealand and Germany, and some countries acted appallingly, like the US, UK and Brazil.

Would an assembly have made much difference?

Yes, we know the people in China who were leading the fight against the disease. You invite them to present on what is taking place. If they had stood up in the first week of February at an emergency meeting, our [science advisors] looking at the evidence from China would have come back to London and said “this is serious”.

How do you rate China’s actions?

Chinese health workers and scientists did an incredible job to stem the epidemic and to tell the world about its seriousness. But there are questions about the political response. The first patients admitted to hospitals in Wuhan were in the first week of December and the WHO wasn’t informed until 31 December. Those were four crucial weeks.

The WHO has praised China’s response. Do you think it is hamstrung by trying to keep on good terms with countries’ leaders, as it was accused of with Ebola in 2014?

Dr Tedros [Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the current head of the WHO] is a very fine public health leader, [but] I think the WHO is afraid to hold member states accountable and that is one of its critical weaknesses.

What should be done about that?

The WHO needs to call it as it is. So if countries have made mistakes or acted inappropriately, the head of WHO needs to say so. There needs to be an international inquiry into how this pandemic has been handled.

Hasn’t The Lancet also made some mistakes, like accepting a now retracted paper on using hydroxychloroquine to treat covid-19?

I don’t think we were at fault for accepting it. The paper passed through peer review. We took the paper, as did our reviewers, as being an accurate description of a piece of science. What peer review isn’t is a way to validate a piece of science. The only way you can validate a piece of science is by repeating the experiment.

In his new book, The Covid-19 Catastrophe: What’s gone wrong and how to stop it happening again, Horton condemns most countries’ responses to coronavirus. He spoke to New Scientist about how the crisis has been mishandled around the world.

Money Grows on Trees: The Capitalist's Worst Nightmare Come True: The Crucifixion of Capital

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

CAPITALISM IS FAILING; TIME REPLACES MONEY. CANADIAN FINANCIAL INDUSTRY VETERAN RICHARD M. KIERNICKI PROPOSES A REALISTIC ALTERNATIVE IN HIS BOOK “THE CAPITALIST’S WORST NIGHTMARE COME TRUE: THE CRUCIFIXION OF CAPITAL,” TO RESURRECT HUMAN EQUALITY, SOLVE INCOME INEQUALITY, INCREASE SUSTAINABILITY & TURN THE ECONOMY INTO AN ECOLOGY, ITEMS OF GREAT CONCERN TO PEOPLE TODAY

Toronto, ON (June 8, 2020) Canadian financial industry veteran and author of “The Capitalist’s Worst Nightmare Come True: The Crucifixion of Capital,” Richard M. Kiernicki is officially releasing his physical book on July 14, 2020 to help resolve many of the issues of great concern to people now, at a time when lockdowns and restrictions are leaving many without income and government subsidies for individuals have not been extended.

Capitalism is not working, weakening democracy, and we need a system that works for everyone, that will resurrect humanity’s potential and shine a light at the end of the tunnel, in contrast to all of the doom and gloom going on across the world today. The book outlines the problems the world faces today associated with capitalism, particularly now, with the COVID-19 crisis, businesses closing, a huge percentage of the population out of work and unable to afford their housing and bills and the uncertainty in worldwide stock markets, creating fear and stress. If we didn’t have all of these financial challenges to deal with, we could focus on the health and social challenges and find solutions to those aspects of the crisis, curtailing the pandemic and reducing social unrest. So many resources are being directed towards financial stability.

If capitalism wasn’t the ruling principle of our society, there would not be financial limitations on supplies and the production and distribution chain, and people wouldn’t have to worry about where they’re going to live, how they’re going to pay for their next meal, or if there will be enough money for the necessary medical supplies and solutions for curing this pandemic. As a financial advisor, mentor to financial professionals and entrepreneur, Richard utilizes his 30+ years of experience in the financial industry, helping clients build wealth with the techniques he learned from his self-made billionaire mentor.

Seeing how the “money game” is rigged by the regulations put in place to create income disparity and widen the gap between the rich and the poor, Richard has a new vision of the future, one where money doesn’t rule people’s actions, where sustainability and resource creation replaces financial wealth creation, where everyone is recognized for their contribution. It may sound idealistic, yet it’s realistic to replace an antiquated system with something completely different that addresses modern-day concerns and challenges.

Richard’s book goes beyond the problems presented by capitalism and offers a realistic solution, along with resources, projects and organizations that have put into place solutions that will support his idea. “Capitalism has brought us to where we are today and is now an outdated system, limiting the ability for humanity to thrive in the future of life on this planet.

It’s time to turn the economy into an ecology and promote equality and sustainability for our survival and growth into the new era, taking all of our current challenges and utilising unprecedented potential to oppose the unprecedented negative changes currently unfolding,” says Kiernicki; “at a time when the world is working together to find answers for our shared dilemma, it is the perfect occasion for finding ways to collaborate in a new system for unleashing unlimited human possibilities and unparalleled initiatives for ongoing sustainability of our planet.”

The limited edition digital book was released on Sunday, April 12 on his website, https://www.richardmkiernicki.com/author, chapter by chapter and is available until the worldwide paperback release on July 14, 2020. Advanced copies of the paperback are available and include the limited edition digital book. For more details on the book, visit richardmkiernicki.com.
