Coronavirus antibodies finding 'demolishes' herd immunity push

The UK research also provides more evidence for reinfection with the SARS-CoV-2 virus

A rapid decline in coronavirus antibody prevalence demonstrated in a new UK study is further evidence that a herd immunity strategy would be doomed to failure, researchers say.

Findings from the REACT-2 (Real Time Assessment of Community Transmission) study also suggest that, as population immunity wanes, the risk of COVID-19 reinfection becomes increasingly likely.

Investigators from Imperial College London have reported that the prevalence of antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 among UK adults dropped by more than one quarter over the
