Expert: 'corona parties' seeking herd immunity dangerous

LUBBOCK -

Trying to create herd immunity, there have been reports of people gathering to catch COVID-19. Dr. Craig Rhyne with Covenant Health says this is a terrible idea.

"The chickenpox had an almost negligible fatality rate, where as with COVID-19 you're playing Russian roulette," Dr. Rhyne said. "I mean, we've had five-year-olds die from this disease. We've had 30- and 40-year-olds die from this disease based primarily on their immune response to it."
