R-zero also affects the herd immunity threshold. For the old variant it was about 70% of the population. For this new, more infectious variant, it’s 90%.

But at least it solves Node’s problem. With infectiousness that high, everyone who doesn’t get vaccinated will get covid eventually, so there would be little point in the castigation he fears.
