Retired GP thinks he knows better than Sridhar and Bauld

Remind me, do general practitioners tend to be world experts or rather do they have broad knowledge across a wide range of conditions and, crucially, know when to pass you on to a specialist? Yes?

Not Dr Michael J Laggan.

Professors Sridhar and Bauld have no right advising the Scottish Government when they haven’t so much as taken a blood sample or given a flu jab. Who do they think they are encouraging the FM to lock him down and deny him his bools and gowf? Sridhar was an adviser on controlling Ebola but has she had to look up someone’s rectum?

Laggan is incensed that hospitals will be functioning at reduced capacity because of Covid-19 when it only produces symptoms in 90% of those infected.

What should the other 10%, 540 000 do doc? Just take it on the chin?

The Herald’s letter page is become Bedlam, a place of irrational rants edited for maximum clickbait revenue.

  1. Wee correction Prof. What he said was that ‘results from the UAE suggest that 90% of people tested were asymptomatic’. “Suggest” is the clincher – so scientific, exact, precise etc….not

    It really was a remarkably silly letter that took no account of the extent to which the NHS has started up again or the extent to which the rate of start-up and daily function is constrained by the need to protect patients AND staff from infection and possible death.
