The Lancet: Evidence informing the UK’s COVID-19 public health response must be transparent

A new paper in the Lancet. A quote from this…

We welcome the UK Government’s announcement that the modelling and data considered by its Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies will be published in the future. However, we request that the government urgently and openly shares the scientific evidence, data, and models it is using to inform current decision making related to COVID-19 public health interventions within the next 72 h and then at regular intervals thereafter. Time is a luxury we simply do not have as we face this critical public health crisis. As we have already seen in other countries, a matter of a few days can prove critical in terms of saving lives and avoiding health system collapse.
