Is Herd Immunity without Vaccine the Worst Strategy? - Virus 9

Herd Immunity to halt diseases spreading
(credit to USA Today).

Originally, Herd Immunity is an idea to stop spreading infection from human to human by vaccinations.

It is proved that if 70% to 90% of people injected by vaccine, the herd immunity is achieved to contain following diseases, just for some examples:

- chickenpox
- mumps
- polio
- measles

In respect to SARS-CoV-2 virus which responsible to COVID-19 pandemic, we do not have vaccine yet. So, how do we reach herd immunity?

Previously, one America bio statistician, then followed by some British scientists to propose to let at least 60% population exposes to virus.

It is mean, just for illustration purposes that number of people infected to virus will be:
- 60% x 68 million = 40.8 million in the United Kingdom
- 60% x 328 million = 197 million in the USA

Let’s say fatality rate was 2.3%, the dead toll is going to unbelievable number:
- 938,400 people dead in the UK
- 4.5 million people dead in the USA

Thus, the idea to have “herd immunity” without vaccine is not only very bad idea, but also crazy or insane.

Physical distance or lock down seems work well in several countries. 

The countries that are able to at least “reduce” spreading of virus by this method include Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong and China.

We hope that other countries replicate the success of these nations, and Covid-19 disappears soon.

  5. Yes, I think precautions work especially in populated areas. It amazes me that the media doesn't focus on the flu or abortion which numbers are stagering as well. New York subways are now filled with the homeless making it unsafe for our healthworkers to get to work. They didn't seem to care about them when they were on the street either. We will see what happens next.

  7. Herd immunity is probably nature's way, but let's hope this little experiment of social distancing works.

  9. The corona mortality rate is closer to 0.1%. 2.3% is overestimated.
    Have a sunny day.

  10. I also think that this is not a bad idea, although really crazy
    well, unfortunately Covid will not disappear, he will probably stay with us and you have to, unfortunately learn to live with him
    Some scientists believe that 80% of the population will get it

  14. Herd immunity is the most stupid idea that I ever heard. We definitely should look up to Korea, China and so on.

  20. It has been a long road and will continue to be. Social distancing really is the most important key to getting through this.

  21. When I first heard the idea of the herd immunity in this situation I was amazed and outraged. I couldn't understand how was it was possible that in this era people were ready to sacrifice other people so easily. We reach some levels in human understanding, comprehension and compasion that we risk to loose due to one epidemic. I agree with you, we should work better on containment because the only functioning herd immunity is when there is a vaccine.
