Re: London director of PHE issues warning
Thanks for this - he assumes that young people who have had it become immune and are then unable to catch it and then pass it on again. This is out of keeping with the experience of pre-19 corona virus - Herd immunity is a good story but potentially just that. Unless partial immunity from a vaccine also reduces the severity of the illness in subsequent infections, ditto for that story.
Now it's endemic there is a fair chance that it will persist and circulate yearly and that everyone will have to undergo a trial by ordeal.
Each according to their station. Unless older people remain interred there will be no good way to protect them.
