Lockdowns: Is now the time for a better solution?
HART members Profs Karol Sikora, David Paton, Norman Fenton and Drs Clare Craig, Lee Jones and Zenobia Storah are joining a host of other experts at the first Question Everything summit. The event entitled Lockdowns – Is Now the Time for a Better Solution? takes place on Saturday 17 July 2021 in London. The panellists and speakers, from science, social sciences, law and industry, also include Luke Johnson, Dr Peter McCullough and Francis Hoar. They will critically assess the global response to COVID-19 in a one day summit which will be live-streamed to the public. The aim is to explore how the world can responsibly return to normality, without further harmful lockdowns.
The event, the first in a series, will consist of a full programme of nine sessions across the morning and afternoon. Some sessions will see expert speakers give short keynote presentations on the scientific, political, legal, economic and social issues, interspersed with longer moderated panel discussions. The main thrust of the day is to critically assess lockdowns and also to look at recommended policies and explore potential frameworks for an independent global inquiry and future global pandemic preparedness. The format will encourage open and transparent discussion and there will be two open Q&As which will make for a fascinating and educational day. More information can be found on the Question Everything website where the public can also register to receive full details about the event and to watch the summit via live stream.
