Dr. Fauci Drops Bombshell Regarding Herd Immunity in USA

This is a new take on the subject, for sure.

Published

There appears to be a great deal of confusion in America these days, as many of us prepare for the inevitable end of the coronavirus pandemic…one way or another.

Much of the optimism for the coming weeks has been due to an acceleration in the deployment of a number of vaccines that should be ushering us toward “herd immunity”:  The point at which enough of us are in possession of antibodies that the virus itself runs out of places to go.

But now, just as many states are beginning to reopen, Dr. Anthony Fauci has some bad news.

Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, the Biden administration’s top adviser on Covid-19, acknowledged the shift in experts’ thinking.

“People were getting confused and thinking you’re never going to get the infections down until you reach this mystical level of herd immunity, whatever that number is,” he said.

“That’s why we stopped using herd immunity in the classic sense,” he added. “I’m saying: Forget that for a second. You vaccinate enough people, the infections are going to go down.”

And he’s not the only one worried about the possibility of America never reaching this milestone.

“The virus is unlikely to go away,” said Rustom Antia, an evolutionary biologist at Emory University in Atlanta. “But we want to do all we can to check that it’s likely to become a mild infection.”

Dr. Fauci has long been a controversial figure among vaccine-skeptical Americans, and this latest change in linguistics won’t likely do much for their confidence in the epidemiologist.

More Americans have Died from Coronavirus than in WWI, WWII, Korean, and Vietnam Combined

According to the most recent numbers, more Americans have died from the coronavirus than died in most of our recent wars combined.

According to the most recent numbers, more Americans have died from the coronavirus than died in combat during WWI, WWII, the Korean, and Vietnam wars combined.

China should be thrilled. They’ve killed more Americans than all our modern wars combined.

Per Breitbart News:

There have been 673,472 deaths in the United States due to the Chinese coronavirus, more than the combined numbers of American military lives lost during battle in World War I, World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.

As of Sunday afternoon, Johns Hopkins University & Medicine reported 42,050,638 confirmed cases of the coronavirus and 673,472 deaths.

In November 2020, the Department of Veterans Affairs recorded 53,402 battle deaths in World War I, 291,557 battle deaths in World War II, 33,739 battles deaths in the Korean War, and 47,434 battle deaths during the Vietnam War.

The combined number of battle deaths in the four wars totaled 426,132.

Recently an artist created a performance piece featuring small white flags to help visualize the death toll.

“This week, over 660,000 white flags were put on display in a tribute at the National Mall in Washington, DC, to represent the lives lost during the pandemic for an exhibit titled, In America: Remember, the New York Post reported Friday,” Breitbart added.

“The 20-acre installation — which was unveiled Friday near the Washington Monument — is the second chilling exhibit that artist Suzanne Brennan Firstenberg said is based on a project trying to capture the ‘human dignity’ behind the staggering death toll,” the Post wrote.

IF China is not the world’s most dangerous enemy, who is?

Major Disparity Discovered Between Moderna and Pfizer Vaccines

This could make an enormous difference when it comes to the subject of COVID boosters.

Published

on

These days, when you get your polio or tetanus vaccines, you don’t really go shopping around, right?  These two inoculations have been perfected to death, over decades and decades, and really just come with one choice:  Be vaccinated or don’t.

But, in the case of COVID-19 and the swiftly-developed vaccines against it, there are several competing options to choose from, which has created and fomented a hotly-debated choice for many Americans.

Now, new evidence seems to suggest that there is truly a difference in efficacy between the two most popular jabs.

Data collected from 18 states between March and August suggest the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine reduces the risk of being hospitalized with COVID-19 by 91% in the first four months after receiving the second dose. Beyond 120 days, however, that vaccine efficacy drops to 77%.

Meanwhile, Moderna’s vaccine was 93% effective at reducing the short-term risk of COVID-19 hospitalization and remained 92% effective after 120 days.

Overall, 54% of fully vaccinated Americans have been immunized with the Pfizer shot.

The news could create a major shift in the way country considers the possibly of vaccine booster shots, which has been a confusing and fraught subject over the course of the last several weeks.

One clinical study suggested that the Pfizer boosters could return the efficacy to the 95% range, but the addition of another shot is likely to move the needle on vaccine hesitancy as well, which is a balance that health experts are wary of teetering.
