Perspective | Trump wants to try for herd immunity. Without a vaccine, it could kill millions.
The new White House strategy won’t be able to protect vulnerable populations.

My latest with @RWalensky, @CarlosdelRio7, @mlipsitch. The herd immunity approach is dangerous, unscientific and inhumane and won't work. washingtonpost.com/outlook/2020/1…

"The question of whether to... “go herd” is not a scientific debate. There is no scientific data showing that a country like the US can protect those at greatest risk while letting the virus spread uncontrolled." @gregggonsalves @CarlosdelRio7 @mlipsitch washingtonpost.com/outlook/2020/1…

In an op-ed, Harvard Chan School's @mlipsitch and colleagues say calls to pursue a herd immunity strategy, including the recent "Great Barrington Declaration," amount to "unilateral disarmament" against #COVID19. wapo.st/374MS6P

So many good points here, and this is one rarely discussed: "the return to 'normalcy' hoped for by herd-immunity proponents will not occur, as fear of exposure would keep people home even if there were no rules requiring it." washingtonpost.com/outlook/2020/1…
