OPINION: STAMPEDING THE HERD OVER THE CLIFF ONTO THE ROCKS BELOW

" Mask It or Casket"

IF YOU MISSED THE EARLIER POST: 


Without doing any further research, the past three days of global wire service Laboratory reports are all confirming there will not be, and cannot be, a herd immunity established with COVID19... So, if you have been following that unscientific theory... good luck !

As we said in the 12 July article above, and earlier, way back in May, the inability of the human body to retain the COVID19 virus antibodies for more than 2-6 weeks (after having the virus), and the great risk of getting it a second/third time again, PLUS, the fact the virus has, and is, constantly mutating into different versions, simply cancels out "Herd Immunity" and makes it dangerous belief to follow, it simply is not happening.

 Yahoo News Medical Contributor Dr. Dara Kass said "We’re seeing in other countries evidence that people may be losing their antibodies over a short period of time,” the World Health Organization has for months cautioned against the notion that antibodies provide permanent immunity "Unfortunately, with a virus like COVID19, if antibodies (immunity) stops working after a period of time, that would affect the idea of natural herd immunity”.

As we said in the earlier article, this also calls into question the feasibility of a "long term" vaccine, and of course, totally cancels any thought of "lifetime" immunity.

Studies published in June from China, Germany, Italy, the UK and elsewhere have all found that patients infected with the novel coronavirus make protective antibodies as part of their immune system’s defenses, but these fell sharply within two to three months after infection.  In America, Johns Hopkins University research showed antibodies may start to decline 20 to 30 days after the onset of COVID-19 symptoms and that detectable amounts of those antibodies fell rapidly in the weeks afterward.

There actually is a long-standing Scientific belief that most Herd Immunity is unachievable...  The US has vaccine coverage for measles at over 90 percent, and Europe has over 85 percent.

Those 10-15% not vaccinated are anti-vax believers, who argue that vaccines are unneeded because there is a natural herd immunity to Measles that has been achieved by the 90%.

When the US saw a sudden spurt in measles cases in 2015, 147 people were found to have gotten measles after their exposure to the virus at an amusement park, none of the afflicted had  been vaccinated, their belief in the herd immunity theory did not protect them from the measles virus.

Later, the US saw its worst measles outbreak in 25 years in 2019, that same year, Europe reported more than 90,000 cases of measles in the first six months, again, herd immunity did not work.

So, be careful what you wish for, ignorance is contagious, and so is COVID19.
