Re: Coronavirus Thread. Virus v humans

Pillar 3 testing for anti-bodies has shown the test isn’t accurate enough yet. The Govt announced that on 2 April.

Looks increasingly like the uk has already achieved herd immunity. On what basis? Look at the curves last year. Are they much different this year?

Re: Coronavirus Thread. Virus v humans

I think compliance has with restrictions has decreased significantly in the UK and the willingness to be tested. So the absence of a rebound is very good. And what makes you think that?

Herd infection if you’re young. There’s no evidence that Under 50s won’t get Covid again this year or perhaps worse than last time.
