Time to End Isolation?

Perspectives on the Pandemic | Professor Knut Wittkowski

Social-distancing and sheltering-in-place were launched in the absence of full data, in an abundance of caution. But much more is now known about the infection, how to treat it, and who is susceptible to severe disease. Is it time to end the isolation of healthy people?  Should we allow herd immunity to build in healthy individuals? Professor Knut Wittkowski believes so.

From Journeyman Pictures on Youtube:

Perspectives on the Pandemic Episode 2: In this explosive second edition of Perspectives on the Pandemic, Professor Knut Wittkowski, for twenty years head of The Rockefeller University’s Department of Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design, says that social distancing and lockdown is the absolutely worst way to deal with an airborne respiratory virus. Further, he offers data to show that China and South Korea had already reached their peak number of cases when they instituted their containment measures. In other words, nature had already achieved, or nearly achieved, herd immunity. Watch episode 1 here: https://youtu.be/d6MZy-2fcBw
