Oh, I completely agree with you that the chance of most American states switching directions and adopting the herd immunity approach is close to zero now. That ship has sailed.Cortopassi wrote: ↑Tue Oct 13, 2020 5:39 pmYou’ve got some good responses, for sure.
The realistic comment is in the US, in the current environment, regardless of Nov 3, makes your scenario less likely than an 18 year old dying of Covid. A vaccine is going to be rolled out even if it is only 50% effective. No way is herd immunity an option, unless we just get there naturally. Things may improve as things go on just because they are and people are tired, before a vaccine, but I see no other path.
But I disagree that it's not an option. It always has been -- and still is -- a sensible option. Our society just refuses to seriously consider it because we've gone collectively bonkers over Covid-1984.
