Oxford Study: Britain Has Reached Herd Immunity

A new Oxford University study suggests Britain has already reached herd immunity levels, as a new model predicts as few as 20% of the population may need to be resistant to Coronavirus to prevent a new epidemic spreading. Far below the 50-60% threshold previously thought…

The study has managed to demonstrate that when COVID-resistant people mix with those yet to contract the virus, the herd immunity threshold “drops sharply”, explicitly observing:

“Thus, a second peak may result in far fewer deaths, particularly among those with comorbidities in the younger age classes.”
