Single source used to prompt panic and undermine government strategy

In another typically unreliable report, the Herald’s Scaremongering Correspondent uses one anonymous source to imply a wider problem, generating anxiety, at least amongst the Herald’s reduced readership.

The source‘ claims that Glasgow Royal Infirmary will not cope with increased Covid-19 cases even though it coped with a far greater surge in March and April and that there will be worrying bed shortages even though there were none then either.

The reporter forgot to mention the 516 bed NHS Louisa Jordan, unused in March or April but still ready for action thanks to the Scottish Government.

The source‘ was unable to quantify the word ‘several’ when claiming that several operations were postponed.

It is not clear if ‘the source‘ is a relative of Labour MSP Anas Sarwar.

It is not clear if ‘the Source‘ was working at the hospital in April 2019 when it was named as ‘one of the top 100 hospitals in the World.’
