Prof Neil Ferguson, foot and mouth and now cv19…

Its generally agreed the Governments handling of foot and mouth was utterly and deeply flawed, a total disaster with not much notice being taken of all the experience gained from the 1969 foot and mouth epidemic and the recommendations from the then Duke of Northumberland (ie major landowner and farmer) … Prof Neil Ferguson was involved in the 2001 foot and mouth epidemic disaster and now he is or was involved on the cv-19 problem.

Methinks he is the wrong person for such activities.
