“In critical situations, Yoga and Ayurveda-driven community immunity plans are better than open-ended herd immunity.”
Amit Ray (Author of Yoga, The Science of Well Being)
It's clear that the United Kingdom pandemic strategy is aiming for herd immunity by the winter, although no one likes to use those words. Having achieved the highest possible vaccination rates by persuasion, ‘freedom’ means unleashing the virus on carefree anti-vaxers: so that real infections can result in some resistance where artificial immunity has been turned down.
This is probably unavoidable in terms of Government policy - we can't stay locked up forever. But it is also really dangerous at an individual level, for those who can't - or won’t - be ‘jabbed’.
So please READ ON .. as we advocate maintaining a high level of caution - social distancing, masks, and working from home where possible - and we suggest that it really is time for young people to get vaccinated.
This is the 200th of our weekly commentaries covering a wide range of issues, and you can find links here to the full list over the past four years.
Danger of infection may abound, but the economy is flexing its muscles again and our programmes this week reflect the surge in activity. Both The Financial Outlook and This Money reflect on motoring inflation; meanwhile The Bigger Picture takes a longer look at road pricing before turning to Afghanistan and Cuba. Motley Fool Answers unveils the scale and challenge of scamming, while The Hypnotist offers an episode on spring-cleaning your mind. There’s a new Modern Mindset on tutoring for filling the gaps caused by the pandemic, and we take our regular look at gadgets and movies.
