Question to ignoble donald supporters.

  How many Covid 19 deaths are acceptable?    



Spain's large-scale study on the coronavirus indicates just 5% of its population has developed antibodies, strengthening evidence that a so-called herd immunity to Covid-19 is "unachievable," the medical journal the Lancet reported on Monday.

The findings show that 95% of Spain's population remains susceptible to the virus. Herd immunity is achieved when enough of a population has become infected with a virus or bacteria -- or vaccinated against it -- to stop its circulation.
The European Center for Disease Control told CNN that Spain's research, on a nationwide representative sample of more than 61,000 participants, appears to be the largest study to date among a dozen serological studies on the coronavirus undertaken by European nations.
It adds to the findings of an antibody study involving 2,766 participants in Geneva, Switzerland, published in the Lancet on June 11.
There was once a difference that the RW took for granted, their geographical area was "unaffected", so they didn't seem to care.   Donald took to the stage to say that the only people affected were East & West coasts and most of his voters were in the mid-West - so essentially eff them.    
Look at any may and people will see that middle US is now where cases are occurring ( but don't forget FL, TX).    There is no herd protection that some here cheered about  -  perhaps now those folks complaining about having to be forced to wear a face mask, will reconsider?   maybe????

Well, maybe the virus will kill or at least have Republicans in the Hospital. Did the dumb one ever realize these may be votes he is throwing AWAY by getting so many sick, does he care? 


I think he doesn't even care Who he gets sick or From Where just vote for me if you're NOT sick from my rallies. 


All he cares about is DONALD, and DONALD winning at any cost.

If we wanted to "speed up" herd immunity, that would mean no social distancing or masks.  But that would again overwhelm hospitals.  I've had too many friends with different types of "elective" surgeries and chemo needs who have been bumped because of the high patient loads in hospitals, or because the virus just presents more danger than postponing chemo.  It's crazy.   

Wear a mask.

No one advocating "speeding up" anything except a vaccine... for the very reasons you list. 

However if only 50% of people vaccinate,  I'll assume a higher percentage of at risk individuals, then we have a lot of people who will continue to get infected. 


There are many benchmarks worthy of review that show how this pandemic will work itself through the whole world... eventually. 


Again... over time viruses tend to become less virulent and more contagious. 


Does any read the compilation of scientific links I posted? I know it's a lot to read, but it answers most questions we have answers too.

  Hilariously, donald has now decided that all the liberals are going to go to Brazil and attack "christ the redeemer"  statue.    



President Donald Trump’s determination to preserve iconic statues and monuments is so profound and all consuming that he’s apparently extending his policy abroad. 

In a round of new digital ads, the Trump re-elect asks people to support the president as he stands up to the angry mobs trying to tear down iconic memorials. In one specific ad, the endangered statue that the campaign spotlights happens to be the famous Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.



     Oh wait, it is the con game to get more money from his 'followers" - yea, Jim Jones analogy is looking more and more realistic.    I wonder if many of those who follow donald know / remember how that ended?

 Achieving herd immunity by the repeated process of infection of one person, recovery and immunity will take a long time,  many, many months or even years, to find it's way through the herd. By 2022 60-80% of Americans will be exposed and the disease and the virus will actively stay with us through 2025. 


The last poll about virus vaccine indicated only 50% would get vaccinated. 


Over time the virus will likely get less virulent and more contagious.

Small problem with the GOPer notion of beating Covid via "herd immunity" - ther will be about 15,000,000 DEAD Americans due to complications from 80% of the population getting Covid19. While the GOPerLords might consider this a great way to make Social Security and Medicare fiscally solvent for the foreseeable future WITHOUT having any rich people pay their fair share of taxes, I'm fairly certain the 15M and their families would count this as a really BAD plan, worthy of the most avid Toad Worshipers.


Perchance we should consider the tried and true solution that has worked for the rest of the World: MANDATORY Mask wearing and social distancing in ALL public places, 14-day quarantine of travelers and anyone else with any sign of the disease, and very stiff fines for scofflaws.


lil donny bonespurs won't  be able to have his rallies but it WILL break the spread of the disease so donny's stupidity and incompetence will only have killed 200-300,000 Americans when THIS round is all over, and we have a Government that will reinforce all the PROACTIVE protective measures (emergency action teams around the World to spot the disease before it gets here, more emergency action teams to mobilize our defense, well maintained stockpiles of medical equipment and strict protocols for Nursing Homes dealing with a Pandemic. Toad trashed all that because he's too dumb to know better, but based on the experience of other countries that had and used those proactive measures, we could have avoided about 3/4ths of the deaths.

Apparently big numbers...trump followers have said that it’s appropriate for Citizens to give their lives to support trump’s economic policies. And certainly have no concern for this hitting minorities more than whites. 
It’s almost taking on a jim jones Ghana 

kool aid fest atmosphere...will people sacrifice themselves for trump...if he says that he needs it in order to be

re-elected...or if god told him that it was necessary...get ready, we are about to really enter the “twilight zone”!
