As a concept, Herd Immunity works.
I certainly hope so - that is if Thailand ever gets around to getting enough people vaccinated - with a vaccine that actually works. I wonder if they even know how many people make up 70% of the population in Pattaya. I don't know the extent of where numbers will be counted. Will "The Dark Side" be included?
Another problem - whenever Pattaya reopens and businesses can operate normally, there is bound to be a major influx of workers from other provinces and possibly Laos, Cambodia, and Burma too, with a smattering from Vietnam. I wonder that will affect herd immunity.
I, for one, intend to continue the normal precautions at least until the number of cases dwindles down to an insignificant number and stays that way.
Maybe I'm just paranoid, but I don't trust anything we're told, I don't trust the efficacy of the vaccines, and I don't trust herd immunity.
