..regarding handling of the Cornavirus, IMO this BB has been full of examples of 'Hindsight bias'... ...also known as the knew-it-all-along phenomenon or creeping determinism, which refers to the common tendency for people to perceive events that have already occurred as having been more predictable than they actually were before the events took place. As a result, people often believe, after an event has occurred, that they would have predicted, or perhaps even would have known with a high degree of certainty, what the outcome of the event would have been, before the event occurred. Hindsight bias may cause distortions of our memories of what we knew and/or believed before an event occurred, and is a significant source of overconfidence regarding our ability to predict the outcomes of future events If we look other countries the UK has fared far better than others in some areas where they have been heavily criticised, for example care home deaths. In truth, the UK is not even close to being the worst. Whilst the Guardian International edition led with an article highlighting that Hong Kong has had NO care home deaths using it as a stick to beat the UK Govt (no surprises there!) it fails to mention the fact that the UK has, according to a European report recently published, the LOWEST Care home death rate in Europe. Whilst that is nothing to be proud of, too many people seem to be biased by their own political views and believe the UK Govt are alone in having mismanaged every aspect of the pandemic. However, using statistics (like I have just done) in a situation as complex as a Global pandemic to compare different Govt strategies is extremely dubious given all the different methods being used to extrapolate the true state of affairs from all the data.
