Coronavirus (1037) White House Embraces Herd Immunity in Latest Push to End COVID-19 Lockdowns (3)

17 October, 2020

Thank you Neil for sharing the link to these two declarations. I guess declarations represent another contribution to the confusion whether coronavirus exists, does not exist, harmful not harmful, action no action, close down no close down, schools no schools or partial schooling, etc. The use of evidence is clearly retreating and more is following the trends in social media which I think has contributed greatly to the misinformation campaign. I would go for evidence as it has been coming from reliable sources. WHO is a lead on that.
