You thought herd immunity would save us? Maybe not

Coronacast 28 de enero de 2021 9

For much of the coronavirus pandemic, there’s been an idea that when enough people are infected and then recover the health crisis will be over.

It’s known as herd immunity – and early on in the pandemic some countries thought it would be the best long-term strategy in dealing with COVID.

Well, it’s lucky that the herd immunity strategy was mostly abandoned, because a peer-reviewed study published in medical journal The Lancet has found that herd immunity might not work.

On today’s Coronacast, Tegan Taylor and Norman Swan discuss some of the reasons why.

Also on the show:
