The British Government is Surrendering to the Wuhan Flu

On March 12, 2020, the British government announced that it will be pursuing a strategy of “herd immunity” to fight off the Wuhan flu.

According to ITV, herd immunity is “what happens to a group of people or animals when they develop sufficient antibodies to be resistant to a disease.”

Raheem Kassam, the Editor-in-Chief of The National Pulse, believes that the British government’s herd immunity strategy would “let everyone get infected.”

He even suggested that President Donald Trump “might wanna rescind that travel exemption.”

Kassam was referring to the Trump administration’s decision to suspend all travel between the U.S. and continental Europe, with the exception of the UK and Ireland.

The British government thinks that it can allow the Wuhan flu to sweep across the entire population so that it can obtain herd immunity, albeit at a slower rate so that those who suffer the most acute symptoms can actually receive the urgent medical care they need. In doing so, the country’s health infrastructure would not be overwhelmed and depleted by the total volume of cases it has to attend to at any given moment.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has effectively capitulated on the issue by stating at a press conference that “I must level with the British public… many more families are going to lose loved ones before their time.”

From here on out, it appears that the UK government is pursuing a strategy of herd immunity to fend off the Wuhan flu, which goes to show that prost-Brexit is off to a rocky start.
