Health Editor’s Note: I cannot see how ‘herd immunity’ can be attained without the use of a vaccine, especially if there are no physical practices to keep people from being close to each other. Lack of restrictions on physical closeness can only lead to more infections, especially since this virus is spread so easily. The only way for the majority of a population. to have antibodies to COVID-19 is for those people to have already had COVID-19. We are experiencing that to have coronavirus can be a death sentence for some and would not be a preferred way to attain herd immunity…Carol

A vaccine is impossible for a rapidly mutating virus like this. We don’t even have a universally effective vaccine for the flu and it still kills between 40-80K people in the US annually. Even worse, according to the Pentagon’s own studies of the 1997-8 flu season (which killed 80,000 people), the flu vaccine was seen to have made people more vulnerable to other respiratory infections, particularly from coronaviruses. I have become increasingly alarmed by Carol Duff’s agenda on this virus. It is driving away long time VT readers. What is happening here?
Victor, What agenda do you think I have? The vaccine is not impossible…..think Swine flu….COVID-19 is not mutating…there appears to be different strains….
