    Hopes that the population will become immune to COVID-19 have been dashed by new research showing antibodies fall rapidly after recovering from the disease. So-called herd immunity has been proposed by some scientists as a better alternative to lockdowns in tackling the coronavirus pandemic. It would require around 50-60% of the population to have protection against the virus so it could no longer transmit efficiently.
