Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The larger the group that is immune, the less chance that the virus will jump to vulnerable elderly people and people with poor health.

Anecdotal evidence is enough to conclusively demonstrate the sheer insanity of this approach.

I just got off the phone with a youg family member in the UK. Gig economy, two zero-hours contracts. She lives in a household of four, all in the same demographic. ALL of them work in close contact with vulnerable people.

One is an optometrist. He has a lot of elderly clients. None will die if they don't get new glasses, but his employer can't afford to close down. One of his colleagues is off work with suspected coronavirus.

Do I need to go on?
