Herd immunity


This is an important read which suggests herd immunity  from Covid-19 is still achievable. Acknowledgements to Anglo-Swedish writer Pelle Nethrop Taylor.

There exist three types of anti body immunity, and some of these are detectable by current antibody tests only in severe infections.

Also, we have t cell immunity. ON TOP of that.

This article gets technical but basically the fact that antibody immunity tests that show for instance that only 8% of Stockholmers have antibodies severely understates Stockholm's real immunity. It may be five times higher than that. So, 40%.
