Stockholm could reach herd immunity by May

Stockholm Expected To Reach Herd Immunity In May, Swedish ...

Sweden’s ambassador to the United States has said the capital of the Nordic country could reach herd immunity by May – a result of a controversial response to the coronavirus pandemic involving few public restrictions.

“About 30 percent of people in Stockholm have reached a level of immunity,” Karin Ulrika Olofsdotter told National Public Radio (NPR).

“We could reach herd immunity in the capital as early as next month,” Olofsdotter said in the interview published on Saturday.

So-called herd immunity occurs when a large enough percentage of a population becomes immune to a virus, either through infection or vaccination, thus preventing further spread throughout the group.
