I'm just rather appalled that we've tried to "stop the spread" all summer and now into fall when we should have actually been encouraging a bit MORE spread so that we would have fewer infections this winter when people will be forced indoors where there is higher viral load. Above a quote from Damfino. I'm not good at this replying yet. Yes, herd immunity. The age-old system for defeating illnesses -sometimes called "umbrella immunity" (if you listen to FAuci, and please don't listen to Fauci). Used by Sweden who never shut down anything in their country for Covid. Schools never shut down. Businesses, restaurants, open. And it's the country where the Covid pandemic is virtually over, but nobody knows this thanks to the media. They're GOOD. With herd immunity, the virus gets passed on, constantly being degraded as it goes (Covid becomes less & less dangerous, because viruses are programmed to "live" and therefore if it kills the patient it won't survive) and it's transferred to people who have the strongest immunity (those with weakest immune systems are always hit first). Virus dies out. But here in this country politicians are up for prolonging this crisis as long as possible. Or at least till after the election.
