Re: The NON-TRUTHS of Our Current Covid-19 Policy

Herd immunity works by reducing the number of potentially infectious contacts between infectious and infectable people. This can be done by reducing the number of contacts between everyone (social distancing), targetted reduction of infected or likely-infected people by self-isolation and quarantin...

Re: The Dangerous Irrationality of Masking our Vaccinated People

Vaccination does give us herd immunity... Not by itself. It can only give us herd immunity if we let immune (vaccinated) people participate in achieving herd immunity. Keeping immune people socially isolated from the herd does NOT give us herd immunity. Standing in the shade does stop you getting s...

Re: The Dangerous Irrationality of Masking our Vaccinated People

Did I just read a theory of disease transmission that assumes humans are some sort of vacuum cleaner and viruses are basically these permanent dust bunnies that we suck up? Even by philosophy now standards, bravo sir, you are a top quality stone cold bonker. Flash, you are only exposing your ignora...

The Dangerous Irrationality of Masking our Vaccinated People

The Dangerous Irrationality of Masking our Vaccinated People Masking and social distancing of our recently vaccinated population is dangerously counter productive. It prevents achieving herd immunity, thereby allowing the virus to continue to grow and mutate further, thereby killing more and more pe...

Re: The NON-TRUTHS of Our Current Covid-19 Policy

Vaccinating people will not work to combat coronaviruses. As we've already seen with the more commonal garden flu vaccines. Viruses will just get more and more virulent and become more and more of a danger to their host as they continue to evolve. We'll reach a point where we will be vaccinating ou...

Re: The NON-TRUTHS of Our Current Covid-19 Policy

In herd immunity, immune people shield vulnerable people from infected people by stopping the transmission of the virus. No they don't. Really. That is a non-truth. It seems that you are confused like many others, by falsely conflating herd immunity as some form of social distancing. These are two ...

Re: The NON-TRUTHS of Our Current Covid-19 Policy

This is fascinating data from the CDC. It seems the country was conducting over 2 million tests per day leading up to the presidential election and now that Dementia Joe is in the White House, they are only doing 1.3 million tests per day, a 35% reduction. Why would that be the case? Didn’t Basemen...

Can you remember which site you pulled it from? It was an image search, did not come from any specific site.

Re: The NON-TRUTHS of Our Current Covid-19 Policy

I would really like to know where you found it, so I'll ask a third time. Where did you find it? Whose epidemiological expertise is embedded in it? I pulled these images off the internet. ...that herd immunity is achieved by saturating a population with immune people such that when we reach a satur...

Re: The NON-TRUTHS of Our Current Covid-19 Policy

Mick, do you agree with the above distinction in the protective effects of herd immunity (as opposed to social distancing)? In as far as I can make out the distinction you have outlined, no. Do you not agree with science? ...that herd immunity is achieved by saturating a population with immune peop...

Re: The NON-TRUTHS of Our Current Covid-19 Policy

***************** The purpose of the three graphics above is to help clarify how herd immunity works, as there seems to be a general misunderstanding and confusion between the protective effects of herd immunity with that of social distancing. The main point I wanted to clarify is: Herd immunity wor...

Re: The NON-TRUTHS of Our Current Covid-19 Policy

Yes, RG1, that Oxford Vaccine Group article you have linked to explains the mechanics of herd immunity. It doesn't support your false "healthy people remove virus from the environment" version. Yes, you are correct, it doesn't (yet) support my conclusion that "healthy people remove the virus from t...

Re: The NON-TRUTHS of Our Current Covid-19 Policy

******************** We can't get the "protective effects" of herd herd immunity if we keep "masking" and "social distancing" our recently vaccinated and those previously infected . We need to let these immune people IMMEDIATELY start full time socializing (re-join the herd!) if we want to stop this...

Re: The NON-TRUTHS of Our Current Covid-19 Policy

The virus transmission is not person-to-person, but is from person-to-environment, and environment-to-person. A very important distinction. People get infected by being in contaminated environments (whether or not other people are presently in that same environment). How does the environment become...

Re: The NON-TRUTHS of Our Current Covid-19 Policy

Mickthinks, you apparently do not understand the mechanics of herd immunity. If immune people did not "remove" more of the virus from the environment, then they "contribute" back into the environment, then herd immunity would be an impossibility. That isn't the mechanics of herd immunity. You are a...
