The UK has just made an unprecedented bet regarding their approach toward handling Coronavirus.
Whereas the rest of the world is aiming to contain the spread, chief scientist advisor Sir Patrick Vallance
has other plans. Advocating what’s called ‘Herd Immunity’, his proposal aims to allow 60% of the UK population to contract the coronavirus, to build up a natural immunity to the virus. In this way, he hopes it will actually help to mitigate the spread.
Of course, the plan is highly controversial. In this video, we discuss the merits of placing high risk bets without all the facts when the stakes are extremely high.
