After some harrowing technical difficulties causing significant delays in the release of this week’s episode, we’re back! This week we’re talking about how one might go about creating herd immunity? As well as what it even is? How do we plan to achieve it in the concept of coronavirus? Join hosts Shanti and Danny as we discuss what science means when they say herd immunity and why it’s so important in this current atmosphere.
