As the Trump administration signals a willingness to build "herd immunity" by purposely allowing the coronavirus to spread, major scientific organizations are denouncing a plan they say would be life-threatening and practically impossible.

That plan, laid out by three scientists in a controversial document called the "Great Barrington Declaration," calls for only protecting "vulnerable" people and letting everyone else get infected with COVID-19. The authors discussed the strategy in a meeting with two top White House officials last week.

This week, the head of the World Health Organization and more than a dozen groups representing thousands of infectious disease and public health experts fiercely pushed back in a series of formal denouncements.
