The World Health Organization has changed the definition of ‘herd immunity’, removing the pre-COVID consensus that it could be achieved by allowing a virus to spread through a population, and insisting that herd immunity comes only from vaccines.
The change occurred in a section of the WHO website titled “Coronavirus disease (COVID-19): serology, antibodies and immunity”.
The original WHO definition (archived here) states that herd immunity “occurs when a population is immunized either through vaccination or through immunity developed by a previous infection. This means that even people who have not been infected or in whom an infection has not triggered an immune response, they are protected because the people around them who are immune can act as buffers between themselves and a person. infected person.
The original definition fails to identify the pre-COVID consensus on what is meant by ‘herd immunity’, that is, when a population becomes protected against a virus because a sufficient number of people were infected with it to create community immunity.
However, the updated WHO version is even more extreme, insisting that herd immunity can only be achieved through mass vaccination programs.
“’Herd immunity’, also called ‘population immunity’, is a concept used for vaccination, in which a population can be protected against a certain virus if a vaccination threshold is reached,” says the website of WHO, adding: “Herd immunity is achieved by protecting people from a virus, not by exposing them to it. “
“Collective immunity” exists when a high percentage of the population is vaccinated, ”the website states, completely omitting the original meaning of“ herd immunity, ”meaning when a population becomes immune. against a virus by being exposed to it.
By changing the definition of ‘herd immunity’, the WHO is literally rewriting hundreds of years of scientific understanding of what the term really means in an apparent effort to silence any argument that herd immunity has been an issue. better approach to tackling COVID -19 than lockdowns and social distancing.
In the age of mass censorship in Silicon Valley, it is essential that we stay in touch.
