Swedish MD Sebastian Rushworth on why the herd immunity question is not as simple as it appears
What Then Must We Do?
Bretigne Shaffer Podcast
I speak with Swedish ER doctor Sebastian Rushworth, about the workings of the immune system and Covid-19. Among other insights: The media (and much of research) focuses on antibodies, but T-cell immunity may be better suited to viral infections; antibodies always wane over time, this is nothing new; the evidence shows that the lockdowns have had no effect on transmission; as the data piles up, it is becoming clear that Covid-19 is indeed very much like a bad flu virus in terms of deaths. Oh, and Sweden is back to normal and we all should be too.
