Erm, it did, in fact, spread very widely. People did travel (millions of troops worldwide) and this facilitated the spread. The Spanish flu infected 500 million people around the world, or about 27% of the then world population of between 1.8 and 1.9 billion, including people on isolated Pacific islands and in the Arctic. Also, you state that it 'came back' at least twice. But this wasn't due to lack of herd immunity, its because it mutated: The second wave of the 1918 pandemic was much deadlier than the first. The first wave had resembled typical flu epidemics; those most at risk were the sick and elderly, while younger, healthier people recovered easily. By August, when the second wave began in France, Sierra Leone, and the United States, the virus had mutated to a much deadlier form. October 1918 was the deadliest month of the whole pandemic.

#20911 Correct, and a good example for the government's advisors. People didn't travel then on the whole. Therefore it didn't spread very widely. So no 'herd immunity', it came back, at least twice.

Speaking of which we have the joys of TB testing the herd over the next two weeks.

What’s an acceptable cost in terms of lives? 50m infections where 0.5% die? Thats 250,000. A very high price. If we knew there was an effective vaccine round the corner we’d act differently.

so what did they do after the massive spanish flu epidemic of the first world war?it ran its course until people developed immunity. shutting every thing down is not going to get rid of it,in time it will come back.. i think today people are becoming hysterical about it..

Nor bacteria - Prevention of TB involves screening those at high risk, early detection and treatment of cases, and vaccination with the bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) vaccine.

Herd immunity never worked on other Viruses, Measles, Polio, and even the Flu required Vaccines!

Think that part of the strategy is to enable the NHS to cope - avoid sudden large increase in patients.

Essential - "I suppose when you are in good health you can use terms like herd instinct with impunity, some of us would prefer not to catch this." "Herd IMMUNITY", Essential, and that includes vaccination. Relax, bro'.

GSK is not developing a vaccine but they are providing a proprietary adjuvant for a vs vaccine

Weak sterling helps GSK and other dollar earners.

monty, Not necessarily a good thing as there is not much spare capacity for vaccines production at GSK. Look at the delays to global marketing of Shingrix - new plant (Belgium) won't be running till 2024. Last thing GSK wants is governments to commandeer facilities that GSK needs for lucrative production.

You would think so, Monty. "Coronavirus is likely to return “year on year” and millions of Britons will need to become infected to control the impact of the disease, the government’s chief scientific advisor has said. Sir Patrick Vallance told Sky News around 60% of the UK population would need to contract the deadly COVID-19 in order for society to develop “herd immunity” from future outbreaks."

If vaccines found and they reckon not far off, surely GSK vaccine facilities will help produce it.

You can sleep at night holding GSK. Just holding GSK, less sure about, but Michael knows what he's doing I'm sure.
