🎧 Herd Immunity Is Not a Strategy (Social Distance)

Listened Herd Immunity Is Not a Strategy from The Atlantic

But β€œherd-immunity strategy” is a contradiction in terms, in that herd immunity is the absence of a strategy.Β Herd immunityΒ is an important public-health concept, developed and used to guide vaccination policy. It involves a calculation of the percentage of people in a population who would need to achieve immunity in order to prevent an outbreak. The same concept offers little such guidance during an ongoing pandemic without a vaccine. If it were a military strategy, it would mean letting the enemy tear through you until they stop because there’s no one left to attack.
