#1 Yet, in America, about 99% of the population has yet to be infected.

Even in Israel,more than 99% remain uninfected/undetected.

Are we done flattening the curve yet?

#2 ^Robert.
(a) So far, and you'd expect some, there is no evidence that recovered CV19 patients are immune.
(b) There never was any evidence for "herd immunity". It's an artifact of sloppy mathematical modeling.

#3 Sloppy like the "modeling" from Imperial College, the former home of one Neil Ferguson?

#4 Sloppier. At least imperial model had death rates in it.

#5 So if you have no symptoms and you dont die, is it really a deadly pandemic?

Asked and answered.

#6 ^Tell it to 1/2 a million who died already.

#7 Most of whom might've died regardless? Pffft

#8 ^Only in the sense that everyone dies, Frank.

#9 Not buying this chicken little nonsense any more Grom. You have completely discredited yourself as far as I am concerned.

#11 I guess the libtards only "follow the science" when it's PC/convenient:

#12 Go back and look at #1. We are a long, long, long way from being finished with this. Never did 'finidh' with the Hong Kong flu, by the way.

So we either lock down until we get a vaccine we know is safe and effective and plentiful, or we get on with life until the death toll gets so high no one wants to go out.

Pick one.

#14 The longterm health hazards from Pandemic M@sturbation, Grom are not in your favor

#15 "in America, about 99% of the population has yet to be infected."

If you start off with an unproven assertion (commonly known as "a lie", or mopre courteously as a "misrepresentation"), the rest of what you say is extremely suspect.

And the "herd immunity" has some decent mathematical underpinnings. Please post credible citations to the contrary - you're marking the assertion, show your work. Otherwise you're just another ass, braying at barnyard.
