'Infect the young and isolate those at risk' - One German scientist's plan to end the lockdown
Prof Alexander Kekulé says the lockdown is in danger of going on too long and causing more damage than the virus
A leading German epidemiologist who predicted the coronavirus crisis in Europe is now calling for governments to end the lockdown.
Prof Alexander Kekulé warned the virus was about to engulf Europe and publicly urged Angela Merkel’s government to start screening international travellers as early as January.
But he now believes the lockdown is in danger of going on too long and causing more damage than the virus, and has drawn up a plan for how it can be safely lifted.
