Herd Immunity Will Slow and Stop COVID-19 Pandemic

Health Editor’s Note: Herd immunity (protection) is achieved when a virus cannot spread anymore because all it does it encounter people who are protected against the virus.  The virus will not find hosts in which to replicate and will not be able to continue its spread. Everyone in the population does not need to be immune if you have enough who are. 

How do we achieve herd protection? With a vaccine, people can become immune without getting ill or for this virus, COVID-19, possibly dying in the process. The more people who cannot get ill with coronavirus, the more that will be protected from being exposed to the virus. 

To follow Trump’s bonehead plan, to let the virus run its crazy, killing, course without intervention and sickening and killing hundreds of thousands along the way, is positively medically and ethically unacceptable. Until we have a safe and effective vaccine, until we start vaccinating people, we will not see a way to get control of this pandemic without loosing hundreds of thousands more.  That is not acceptable.  Any deaths are not acceptable no matter how old, sick, burdened with comorbidities, immune suppressed an individual is.  It is well past time to get this pandemic stopped. No help is coming from a crazy clown who pretends to be in charge…..Carol

  1. Actually, the Antibody therapies can be given like vaccines, as preventatives. And they are farther along than vaccines. Regeneron already applied for the FDA authorization for their Polyclonal antibody. I would take that shot in a heartbeat when they offer it. Eli Lilly has both a Polyclonal and a Monoclonal in the works, too.
