His forecast prompted White House to urge coronavirus lockdowns

The man behind the dire coronavirus death forecast that prompted the strict lockdowns in the United States and the United Kingdom has a history of conflicts of interest, including ties to the pharmaceutical industry.

Neil “Crystal Ball” Ferguson

Ferguson led the team at the Imperial College of London that published a report March 16 forecasting 2.2 million deaths in the United States and 500,000 in Britain from the coronavirus. However, just 10 days later, he told a parliamentary committee that the U.K. death toll is unlikely to exceed 20,000 and could be much lower. And more than half that number would have died anyway by the end of the year, because of their age and underlying illnesses, he told the panel. The current U.K. figure is more than 28,000 while the U.S. has recorded more than 65,000 deaths.

The Express of London noted Ferguson’s models in the fight against the swine flu a decade ago also were way off. He predicted 65,000 people in the U.K. would die. But only 457 succumbed to the disease.

Ferguson at the time was advising the World Health Organization while he had ties with the pharmaceutical industry.

The Express noted the 2018 documentary “TrustWHO” found Ferguson was drawing consultancy fees from GlaxoSmithKline, Baxter and Roche.

The companies were manufacturers of the swine flu vaccines and medications, but that was “not a problem for the WHO,” the documentary said.
