The only other way to achieve herd immunity is to let everyone who can be infected, get infected, and the survivors will have acquired a natural resistance to the virus.

it was rumoured that this had been discussed by the UK government. When the question if this was government policy was put to Matt Hancock by Andrew Marr, the answer was to a different question.

The lockdown will only be needed until a cheap, effective vaccine is available.

John McEnroe had a statement for comments like that.

money vs lives is really what is being asked here..

maybe not that simple ... any resources put into dealing with problem A ... for example CV19 ... are by definition not being expended on problems B, C, D etc ... for example cancer therapy, malaria, smoking prevention ...

 

At some point, the resources put into either maintaining a lockdown (or dealing with consequences of releasing a lockdown) will divert into the next problem that floats to the top of the pile ... which may be B, X, Y or Z.

 

Nobody controls this stuff, it all happens as a result of squillions of individual decisions and random natural events. 

 

I can't see a TV poll making things any clearer.
