My name is John Ward. I was a strategic planner on UK Government advertising during the AIDS crisis while I was married into a medical family of frontline GPs, practice nurses and specialist carers for the aged. During a market research/marketing career spanning 34 years, I worked extensively in the fields of both focus group and econometric models as media for predicting consumer responses and likely empirical outcomes respectively.
I am disturbed by the general one-sided media and Pharmaceutical lobbying/research funding that seems to me increasingly censorious about any attempts to question the nature, severity, general features, properties, overall species threat and optimal containment strategies in relation to the Coronavirus Covid-19.
I founded this forum to help ensure that best medico-social practice will triumph over fear, financial motives and questionable agendas.
