Covid-19 crisis


Herd immunity
Most people think that herd immunity is a risky strategy for a country to adopt, as the rapid spread of the covid-19 virus can cause serious illness and deaths. 

There are several epidemiologists who prefer to avoid a lockdown, as it does not solve the problem. It will cause a lot of harm to the economy. When the lockdown is relaxed, as it cannot be continued for too long, the virus will continue to spread as a large proportion of the population has not gained immunity.

These experts prefer a strategy to isolate and protect the vulnerable population, i.e the elderly and those with pre-existing medical conditions, and allow the general population to gain the immunity.

I wish to share the views of these experts and a political leader.

It is important for everyone to keep an open mind and hear the views of both sides of the spectrum. After that, you can make your decision.

I have watched the video interviews of by these experts and also the experts advising the governments who have implemented a lockdown. I have also looked at the data.

I believe that their strategy, to isolate the vulnerable population, will work better and will not cause so much damage.

Vote - do you agree that the lockdown (or circuit breaker) is bad?
