'Lockdowns are not effective. We need a targeted test system'

As the threat of further lockdown measures looms restricting how people move while Covid-19 grows in communities, experts caution that there are other more effective ways to tackle the virus

“Lockdowns in general are not effective,” Kingston Mills, a professor of experimental immunology at Trinity College, warns.

“They are only effective as a short-term measure to stop health systems from getting overwhelmed. They are only a short-term measure in terms of reducing the spread of the virus, but if the virus is still in the community it will not prevent the spread once the so-called lockdown is opened up. It is a crude weapon for containing the spread of the virus.
