Abstract
Lockdown policies are thought to reflect the scientific consensus. But how do we measure that consensus? Daniele Fanelli (LSE) set up a site that enables academics to anonymously give their views on the ‘focused protection’ model endorsed by the ‘Great Barrington Declaration’, and found some striking differences between both countries and genders.
