Writing in the Daily Mail, Mark Harper MP & Steve Baker MP - Chair and Deputy Chair of the Covid Recovery Group, say the government response to Covid must be 'rational and balanced, not driven by panic and should take full account of all the health and economic consequences of lockdowns and restrictions.'
The Covid Recovery Group - set up in November 2020 - has repeatedly asked the Government for regional cost-benefit analysis showing the non-Covid health impact on society as a whole, including the impact on people’s livelihoods and businesses. It asks, 'are these restrictions saving more lives than they cost?'
They add that lockdowns and restrictions cause immense social and health damage, from people not presenting for treatment and deteriorating mental health to the impact on young people’s education, job prospects and our country’s soaring debts.

ExcludedUK is a non profit grassroots NGO founded to provide a platform for those denied fair and adequate financial support from the Governments COVID-19 Support schemes since the pandemic began in March. With a community of over 60,000 members across all industries, age groups and regions, we estimate that three million UK tax payers have been excluded from the same support as others, which has lead to thousands of people losing their livelihoods, careers, and homes, and sadly, for some, their lives.
ExcludedUK has been fundraising to provide urgent help and support for those affected in the forms of business and career advice, debt support and 121 counselling sessions within 48 hours. Please find more information on our website www.excludeduk.org.
