News Description

BUSINESS INSIDER The head of the World Health Organisation (WHO) has warned that allowing Covid-19 to spread freely in the hope of achieving herd immunity is "simply unethical." WHO director general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said that herd immunity — where a large portion of a community becomes immune to a virus, limiting its spread — must come through a vaccination, and cannot be achieved by allowing people to become infected.
