More Than 8 MILLION COVID-19 Cases in the U.S.

With over 8 MILLION CASES and almost 220,000 Deaths in the U.S, Trump has totally failed the people of America. He's completely ignored the SCIENCE and turned Covid-19 into a political issue, ignoring/discouraging the most important prevention, wearing Face Masks. Let's recall what Trump said about the virus earlier this year.

  • The virus is a Democratic hoax
  • The virus is under "Tremendous Control"
  • Everything will return to normal by Easter Sunday
  • Inject BLEACH as a prevention measure for Covid-19
  • If you get the virus, take hydroxychloroquine.

There are two ways American could achieve "herd immunity". One is though a vaccine and inoculate enough people that the un-inoculated would not be exposed. The other is through natural infection.  The U.S. would have to have 70% of its population infected in order to achieve herd immunity.  In addition to overwhelming the health care systems, covid has shown that reinfections do occur, though rare. If we maintain the current 3% death rate for Covid, we would see 8.3Million deaths to get a 70% infection rate.  (.03*382.2 million  Americans *.7).  I do not see Natural Infection as a viable option. 

 

 

Herd immunity can also be reached when a sufficient number of people in the population have recovered from a disease and have developed antibodies against future infection

Experts estimate that in the U.S., 70% of the population — more than 200 million people — would have to recover from COVID-19 to halt the epidemic. If many people become sick with COVID-19 at once, the health care system could quickly become overwhelmed. This amount of infection could also lead to serious complications and millions of deaths, especially among older people and those who have chronic conditions.

    Red States are now getting a taste of their own medicine.   Far-righties will ignore it - that is what they do....   https://www.newschannel5.com/news/newschannel-5-investigates/officials-concerned-but-not-panicked-ov...

     Sort of begs the question, how many deaths does it take to decimate the Rural Mid West...

Actually the number should be 40-60% higher. Initially... when the virus appeared, the unreported rate was 85%. 

 

We would like passive exposure at 65-80% for heard immunity. You know I've posted the data and the science at least 5x now. Do you actually read any of it? 

 

Educate yourself.

If you do more testing than any other country, one would EXPECT more positives!
