    It started last month, when the Herald’s business editor Fran O’Sullivan accidentally tweeted what was meant to be a private message to Covid modeller Rodney Jones, thanking him for a “well-timed article” and calling out the government for relying on “bogus modellers like Hendy”.
    O’Sullivan apologised the next day.
    But anti-expert views have surfaced again over the last week or so.

    Over at Stuff, political editor Luke Malpass argued that it’s time to start looking beyond what he called the “epidemiological echo chamber”.
