COVID-19 Second Wave – Piet Streicher

31 October 2020

An interview with Piet  Streicher of PANDA on a COVID-19 Second wave, herd immunity, the dissemination of correct information by Governments and the fact that a one-size-fits-all approach is not effective.

Piet Streicher of PANDA in an interview with RSG on the so called COVID-19 Second wave and the effect on primary health care. He highlights the extended lockdown’s lack of impact on COVID 19 infections as well as the extremely negative effect on the economy. Piet Streicher’s experience in data analysis gives us an insight into the figures that the media are publishing and how these figures can be misrepresented. The true picture is far less frightening and the way to use the data is to shield the most vulnerable and allow the less vulnerable to build ‘herd immunity’.
