The problem with predictions is that you have to make them before an event occurs. We reached the peak infection rate and thus herd immunity when we flattened the curve back in March 2020 when the initial lockdowns began. In other words we destroyed our economy and society for nothing. And we did it without a vaccine.
Humanity has been achieving herd immunity by exposing themselves to virus etc. Americans have been locked in their cells for nine months and when they leave to get essential goods like Taco Bell and lottery tickets they've been covering their face/ social distancing from each other and washing their hands twenty times per day.
Essentially they've weakened their immune system so when flu season hits they are more likely to get it. But the 'experts' including Fauci have told us the only way out of this is to take their experimental vaccine.
MSNBC/ YAHOO Dr. Anthony Fauci predicted Monday that the United States could achieve herd immunity against Covid-19 by "the end of the second quarter 2021" after vaccines are more widely deployed.
Fauci — director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases — said that, depending on the "efficiency of the rollout," the Covid-19 vaccines should be widely available to most Americans by spring. Depending on whether enough people can be persuaded to get inoculated, he said "
By the time we get to the fall, we can start approaching some degree of relief where the level of infection will be so low in society we can start essentially approaching some form of normality," he said. He said extraordinary public health measures — such as mask usage, event cancellations and enhanced hygiene protocols — are likely to continue "several months into the second half and beyond of 2021.
Only when you get the level of infection in society so low that it's no longer a public health threat can you then think about the possibility of then pulling back on public health measures," Fauci said.
To encourage others, Fauci also volunteered to be vaccinated publicly as soon as possible.
