Introduction and summary
A study published two weeks ago by the COVID-19 Response Team from Imperial College (Ferguson20) appears to be largely responsible for driving UK government policy actions. The study is not peer reviewed; indeed, it seems not to have been externally reviewed at all.

That, in my view, shows a worrying approach to a matter of vital public concern.
