i-sense Q&A series: Is herd immunity a reality?

Home > Videos > I Sense Qa Series Herd Immunity Reality

Each month we will explore different themes related to developing tools and technologies to track, test and treat infectious diseases. As preparing for and responding to an outbreak is a collaborative effort, we’ll gain perspective from experts in academia, government and policy, healthcare, and industry.

This month (November 2020) we discussed the topic 'Is herd immunity a reality?' with Prof Eleni Nastouli (UCLH) and Prof Michael Edelstein (Bar-Ilan University). We talked about how herd immunity works, the promise of a new vaccine and what this will mean for COVID-19, and what we have learnt throughout the pandemic.
