OK, so let's try to unpack this figure a little. As noted "it checks out" against https://t.co/swt2ys2aN7, as indeed it should as it's essentially using the same global data, compiled by Johns Hopkins. I used library(COVID19) in R and then aggregated. https://t.co/EfbiuMrZjr

Covid deaths are not tracking the uptick in cases found by massively increased testing since the summer. https://t.co/9oPp2yIlMT

"Politicisation of science was enthusiastically deployed by some of historyโ€™s worst autocrats and dictators, and it is now regrettably commonplace in democracies. The medical-political complex tends towards suppression of science to aggrandise and enrich those in power."

"The UKโ€™s pandemic response relies too heavily on scientists and other government appointees with worrying competing interests, including shareholdings in companies that manufacture covid-19 diagnostic tests, treatments, and vaccines."

"Science is being suppressed for political and financial gain. Covid-19 has unleashed state corruption on a grand scale, and it is harmful to public health." Extraordinary article from the executive editor of the British Medical Journal. https://t.co/j17nj1zw1p

According to lockdown/mask proponents, France did everything right and Sweden did everything wrong.  

France locked down hard and early; strict mask mandates starting in summer; 2nd lockdown in fall. 

Sweden: no lockdown, no masks.

How do you think answers would correlate to current case and mortality rates?
