British scientists discover 16-year-old plan to fight COVID

A plan to combat coronavirus infection has been found in the UK, which was lost 16 years ago. This document outlined a strategy for responding to the spread of COVID-19.

One of the creators of the document said that she has no idea where this plan disappeared at that time. It is emphasized that it contained recommendations on the introduction of a self-isolation regime, measures restricting the movement of people.

David King, who is an ex-scientific adviser to the British government, said that the document was overlooked.

“We could have saved tens of thousands of lives,” King said.
