Shahid had clearly written in his article that decisions are not being taken on the basis of data. This is why the epidemic spiraled out of control. 

However, he had mentioned in his article that he has full support from his colleagues regarding his suggestions and these people believe that his suggestions are useful in fighting covid. But his suggestions were not implemented by the government.

He had said that the government officials had made a mistake in January ahead of time, assuming that the epidemic was over, as per Indian Express.
