Suddenly, Johns Hopkins Prof Sees US Herd Immunity By April (www.wsj.com)

Amid the dire Covid warnings, one crucial fact has been largely ignored: Cases are down 77% over the past six weeks. If a medication slashed cases by 77%, we’d call it a miracle pill. Why is the number of cases plummeting much faster than experts predicted?

In large part because natural immunity from prior infection is far more common than can be measured by testing. Testing has been capturing only from 10% to 25% of infections, depending on when during the pandemic someone got the virus. Applying a time-weighted case capture average of 1 in 6.5 to the cumulative 28 million confirmed cases would mean about 55% of Americans have natural immunity.

Now add people getting vaccinated. As of this week, 15% of Americans have received the vaccine, and the figure is rising fast. Former Food and Drug Commissioner Scott Gottlieb estimates 250 million doses will have been delivered to some 150 million people by the end of March.

There is reason to think the country is racing toward an extremely low level of infection. As more people have been infected, most of whom have mild or no symptoms, there are fewer Americans left to be infected. At the current trajectory, I expect Covid will be mostly gone by April, allowing Americans to resume normal life….[    ]

Yay! Hopefully this scamdemic will soon be over. If they didn’t do the lockdowns, we could could have been here much faster.

It’s beginning to look a lot like this fall, or Christmas, or 2022, or certainly by the time of the next honest Presidential election.

The virus will stick around like the national guard troop surrounding the Capitol Building as a reminder of who is in control.

There will be new variants that evade the current vaccine, and are more contagious and virulent that current viruses. If they don’t arise naturally, someone will create them.

I think it was JHU who showed there was no increase in the overall death rate for 2020, maybe even a slight decline. That news was “cancelled”. So will this.

But, but, but……if we reach herd immunity in April 2021, how can we “manipulate” the 2022 mid-terms? Or the 2024 general? Covid-21? Ebola-22?

No ‘herd immunity’ from a virus that does not exist.

Now, the elections are successfully stolen from people, so we can go back to normal.

The first liberal to say going maskless is safe will be like the first Soviet to stop clapping for Stalin.
