“Experts divided in UK plan amid “soaring” cases” | SCMP

“Soaring”? Not at all. As I castigate the South China Morning Post:

The highest UK cases recently were on 23 March, 19 days ago! [correction: 21 March, 21 days ago]

They have since *plunged* by 50%, even as NPIs were kept relaxed. This goes against the narrative that relaxing = rising cases. Is that why you printed this tendentious nonsense from Associated Press? 
Could not someone at SCMP have done easy check at Our World In Data, before publishing? 
I write this not necessarily for publication, but to bring to the notice of your editors. Some would call this article “misinformation”!
