    A coworker of mine that sits closes to me was diagnosed with Covid. That was more than a month ago, but she got first symptoms on a Friday, and in that office space we aren’t using masks, share same doors and use same lunchroom. I’ve been there all that time, no time off. She got the virus, nobody else in the office did (we tested). So, I have a very real life example of how it works, and all coworkers that interacted with her are fine just like me. We all had back to back mild colds back in January-February, and this coworker is new - she is the only one who got it, which leads me to believe that we all had Covid back at the beginning of the year. Problem is - it’s easy to get tested for the virus, but next to impossible to get tested for antibodies, therefore the state scares a ton of people for no reason without providing any means to challenge the restrictions with scientific findings. At the beginning of the year we were told the virus is highly contagious and spreads before any symptoms show up. Wouldn’t that mean that we all should have had it by now?

    Typically, herd immunity means one has already been exposed and/or vaccinated. Having a natural immunity is different. Or conversely, it is helpful to know why some people are more susceptible to it as they move through the vaccine phases.

    I uphold your right to your uninformed OPINION but the Scientists who actually KNOW what they are talking about DISAGREE with you.

    They are predicting that the infections will INCREASE through the Fall and Winter when people are crowded together to remain warm.

    Meh, it doesn't matter what Trump does you will criticize it for political purposes. If you were truly worried about this pandemic you would be furious with China for allowing it to become a pandemic. Early on China stopped domestic flights but allowed international flights thus allowing Covid 19 to spread globally.

    Your lack of outrage against China only reveals your bias and true purpose. You are not qualified to criticize Trump.

    Are these the same folks who said in the beginning that Covid 19 was not contagious? Yeah, we should believe them........NOT!

    The only “illness” herd mentality ever cured is critical thinking.
    Follow the herd. No need to think for yourself. That’s the trump supporter mentality.

    You claimed that “herd mentality” cured an illness. Which one? Just identify one.

    Actually yes

    isn’t it a constant complaint that “liberals” are the intellectual elite?

    That's the funny thing about scientist, they all don't agree, they are not factoring in vaccination and science is always changing. It's as if the leftist are wanting doom and gloom, I wonder why? At first the scientist told us 30 million infected and 2 to 3 million deaths in AMERICA. Many on the Corona board were preaching this in March. Since then its been projected down substantially, was it because of the task force reaction and action with the states? Was it because other scientist figured out how to better treat this Wuhan Virus or was it because their projections were wrong? Why did Fauci tell us Feb 27th to keep doing what we were doing and the threat wasn't great here? Why did Fauci talk about it being in the flu family and "may" diminish in warmer months in early Feb? Why did Fauci say mask may stop big droplets but was ineffective in stopping the virus? Did he lie or has the science changed?

    We will have vaccine options as early as next month, the left seems to dismiss this for POLITICAL reasons. The spout their armchair qb ideas that somehow they would've saved the world, ignoring that their beloved scientists projected 2-3 million deaths here. We will not get anywhere close to that thank god.

    Well, due to me having the ability to read Russian, following their news is a fetish of mine and besides all of the government propaganda in their media, none of the predictions about high death tolls, overflowing hospitals and morgues came to life. And their quarantine (if you can even call it that) lasted about 2 weeks.
    So, we have a country with 150 millions residents that is doing nothing about Covid (even spreads untested vaccine) and seem to be doing fine, and at the same time we have a country with 350 million people and a whole bunch of freaked out people who think of they don’t shut down every business and don’t put a mask on everyone then they will all die.

    I’ve had my own up close and personal brush with the virus and survived to tell the story, so I don’t need your scientists telling me something that disagrees with my own experiences. At first we shut down because we had no immunity to it. That’s total BS that was scientifically proven. Then we are told the virus is as deadly as flu, but because it spreads so fast, it’s deadlier, but now we are told you need to be in close, extended, and personal contact with someone before catching it.
    Sorry for being honest about it, but why am I getting the impression that soon after the November elections it will be declared that Covid is just another common cold virus that has been around for millennia and no one knew about it? Why in some countries the lack to response to the virus lead to exact same results as in countries that did shut down? Why can’t scientists explain that?

    if you never got it, you can't know your immune, you have to get it to know that

    even with a vaccine, you will still get it, your body will just be better prepared to fight it

    This has been EXPLAINED to you multiple times already and yet you PERSIST in spouting the same DEBUNKED drivel over and over again.

    Sad!

    I don’t give a damn what you label it.
    If I can be in the same room with the person who has it 5 days out of the week, 8 hours per day, then I’m immune to it. Whether I don’t get it at all, or get it asymptomatically, same result to me.

    :roflol:

    You cite Russian bovine excrement and then PRETEND to being "honest"? :eek:

    Putin and your wannabe Fascist-in-Chief don't give a crap how many people DIE as long as they remain in power.

    The MATH, which does NOT lie, shows that the virus is THIRTY TIMES more DEADLY than the common Flu.

    But thanks for trashing your own credibility on this topic.

    Have a nice day!

    I like that you respect math.
    Explain to me, why do countries in Africa don’t have overflowing hospitals, and semis full with half-decomposed Covid bodies?
    Give me the math that explains why no action in an African sh!thole country amounts to the same (or better) than the results in countries that went for full lockdown.
    Please explain from mathematical perspective how that can happen.

    Yes, bring them on.

    In addition to Sweden providing evidence that we can survive Covid without going into lockdowns, a US federal court also ruled that PA's lockdowns were unconstitutional.

    https://reason.com/2020/09/14/federal-court-rules-pennsylvanias-lockdown-order-unconstitutional/

    Many Democrats don't care about that lately, as well as certain Republicans, but America only exists because of the US Constitution.
