Typical lamestream media propaganda below: They want the coronavirus pandemic to last forever. They claim it’s science but it’s just opinions.. If you keep wearing masks and keep people away from each other of course you’ll never reach heard immunity or end the pandemic. You need to stop wearing the masks and stop socially distance yourself to get exposed to the virus. Now of course people will say; well your going to murder people with this idea. Sure people die daily from all types of issues but the strongest survive and those who would have died anyway, get listed as a covid death to pump up the numbers for the corrupt states and hospitals to get paid more. It’s all a sham. Wake up! The vaccine wont save you from getting covid nor will it help us live normal lives. Just live your life maskless and never look back. The only way to normal pre-pandemic life is to ditch the advice from the fraudsters and use your brain!
Since the coronavirus first appeared in New Jersey last March, wreaking deadly havoc in every corner of the state, one phrase kept being uttered regularly, a seemingly magical yet nebulous two-word goal: Herd immunity.
It’s a point when a community reaches protection from an infectious disease because a sufficient percentage of a population has become immune to infection through vaccination or previous illness. Only when we reach that point can we truly get back to our old way of life.
The problem: reaching herd immunity across the state may never happen, according to public health experts. Even as vaccinations in New Jersey are being doled out at breakneck speeds — more than 3.2 million people, or 48% of the state’s 6.9 million adults, are fully vaccinated as of Thursday — it still likely won’t be enough.
A combination of factors most likely will prevent New Jersey from the threshold, the experts said, including: researchers aren’t certain how transmissible COVID-19 variants are in fully vaccinated people; it’s not known exactly how long vaccinations or previous infections offer immunity from the virus; and a significant portion of residents appear to be refusing to get vaccinated.
“As long as you have multiple uncertainties, getting to herd immunity is something I’m not betting on, because I don’t know how the uncertainties are going to play out,” said Daniel Varga, the chief physician executive at Hackensack Meridian Health.
The other complicating factor is no one knows what percentage of the population needs to be protected to reach herd immunity. Some experts initially estimated it could be achieved with roughly 70% vaccinated or previously infected. But predictions still vary wildly and change almost month to month.
“It’s all speculation,” said Brian L. Strom, the chancellor of Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences. “There are some diseases, you can do at 60%, 70% or 90%. But we don’t know for this disease.”
Many now are switching focus from the idea of reaching herd immunity to preparing society to live with COVID long-term.
Social distancing outdoors, and especially indoors, and proof of vaccination to gain entrance into private venues also are realistic possibilities, the experts said. Some school districts could still temporarily close when cases pop up, and remote working could linger for years.
“It’s pretty clear that coronavirus is going to be part of our future for quite some time,” said Martin J. Blaser, director of the Rutgers Center for Advanced Biotechnology and Medicine. “But the more people who get vaccinated, the smaller a part of our future it’s going to be.”Propaganda Source
