One of Donald Trump's top coronavirus advisers has issued a statement saying the White House is not pursuing a "herd immunity" strategy after a report claiming he was privately pushing the approach.

Scott Atlas, a neuroradiologist from Stanford's Hoover Institution who joined the White House in August, was reported by The Washington Post to have urged the US to adopt a model pursued by Sweden.

The herd immunity strategy proposes looser Covid-19 restrictions so the population at large can build up antibodies to protect themselves from the disease.
