Last week, ASPPH along with fourteen partner institutions, published a statement condemning the herd immunity scheme for controlling the spread of SARS COVID-2. The statement states that “If followed, the recommendations in the Great Barrington Declaration would haphazardly and unnecessarily sacrifice lives. The declaration is not a strategy, it is a political statement. It ignores sound public health expertise. It preys on a frustrated populace. Instead of selling false hope that will predictably backfire, we must focus on how to manage this pandemic in a safe, responsible, and equitable way.” Read the full statement.
