Abstract in another language

Governments around the world are closing in on a crucial turning point regarding the COVID-19 crisis. The long-hoped-for vaccines have arrived, and thanks to them, the two predominant goals behind many of the current lockdown restrictions—protecting the high-risk groups from infection and protecting the healthcare system from a collapse—are within reach. Once high-risk groups are vaccinated, many will be yearning to relax the burdensome restrictions still levied on society and the economy. However, it seems that numerous governments have revised their goals: They seem to aim for herd immunity through vaccination. This new goal is, if at all, attainable only with a significant delay unless governments acknowledge and use the natural immunity of the convalescent. The convalescent immunity is especially important for developing countries.
