Survival of the fittest or the Rule of the Jungle

Dear prime minister, you don't have to follow the ancestors to the letter.   It's our parents who took us to get close to other children who had  mumps, measles or Rubella  etc so we have the immunity.  And that was in  the 70s and 80s. We are now in 2020.
World wide death rate 


Herd immunity concept perhaps ok to apply for children where it's use has originated. However, when the death rate is increasing to 3.7% please think about population of 100,000. The number of deaths would be approximately 3700 . It will not be a small figure. Medial officers may be correct but at what cost.
increase in UK

China's total number of deaths gone down to 7. (Total deaths stand at 3180 and less than whole Europe. There are still 80991 confirmed cases and WHO still rank china as high risk. In Uk it's now 21. Perhaps it's time to follow China and do the unthinkable.

I know we can't close schools yet. If the parents stay away from work it will affect our economy. But you can ban the public gatherings. Offer more support to the elderly. Stop panic buying by people and introduce some rules to stop it. we may lose some of our freedom but it's for greater good.
