“The epidemiological hallmark of a new transmissible disease is that it spreads exponentially until it has saturated a susceptible pool of the population, a process described by Farr’s law.” -Peter H. Duesberg in “AIDS Epidemiology: Inconsistencies with Human Immunodeficiency Virus and with Infectious Disease:” Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA, Vol. 88, pp. 1575-1579, February 1991.
The attempt to “flatten the curve” was not an attempt to reduce the number of infections but rather an attempt to delay some of the infections so that hospitals would not be overrun with patients in the short run. If some of the people in the susceptible pool of the population have managed, so far, to avoid becoming infected with the virus, when the masks, self isolation and social distancing restrictions are removed, they are at a greater rick of being exposed to the virus and thus to become infected. This is not a “second wave”, it’s simply a continuation of the process of the original spread of the virus.
A scientific question that might be asked under the circumstances would be what is it that makes the difference between those who are in the susceptible pool of the population and those who are not? That is, of course, if an ounce of prevention is still worth a pound of cure.
