Swamps is still trolling, he isn't seeking an answer for his question, more a reaction. It's basic Reddit trolling. It's either cos he's still being comicly dumb - like dumber than those two racist idiots that got banned - or cos he's having to double down after being the ignorant boomer stereotype...

Re: Coronavirus

On herd immunity - population density has to be part of the thinking. For example, Sweden has a population of 10m and a land made of 450,000 km2. The UK has 66m and a land mass of 250,000 km2. Or put another way 22 people per square km against 264. So for Sweden, the speed of the spread would presu...

Re: Coronavirus

If there's no such thing as a herd immunity strategy, why was it raised here in Germany as a possibility when health experts first began debating how best to deal with the problem. It also seems to be the strategy that Sweden are following. As for your question – I’m simply not getting drawn into a...

Re: Coronavirus

Re: Coronavirus

I think maybe you need to factor in population size and land area per capita, swampash.
