Nadine Dorries said there’s no such thing as herd immunity – only 7 responses you need

Here’s Tory MP (and health minister) Nadine Dorries giving her considered verdict on coronavirus and the possible impact (or otherwise) of herd immunity.

She was responding to a question from Arron Banks, who need not bother us anymore here, flagging up Covid cases and deaths in Sweden.
