So nobody really knows how long immunity will last if you get Covid. If you get it and you are not immune after 6 months that means you can get it over-and-over again. BUT that does not take into account T-cells and other bodily immunoresponses. So we may have immunity for longer, we really just don't know.

New evidence comes out almost every day.







Actually NO it won't die out. It will come back again and again because it is in different stages in different parts of the world and even within different parts of the nation. So no way it will die out. Hell we still have the bubonic plague and lepercy in parts of the world.
And you just couldn't stop yourself from bringing up the plague right Bob, now look what you have done.

I've been saying from early in this thread, it is not about death counts.

Here is the Republican Governor Tate Reeves from Mississippi, in an interesting Tweet storm about Covid and the concept of HERD IMMUNITY. I believe some members here have suggested that we need to spread this disease around to get to herd immunity.

For ease, I'm just posting the content below. But if you want to see the actual Twitter feed it is here ==> https://twitter.com/tatereeves/statu...83825219682304
1) "Let's talk about herd immunity. I've listened to some people argue that the rapid spread of cases is a good thing, and we need to reach herd immunity in Mississippi and elsewhere to survive. I'm not a health care expert by any means, but I am a math guy. And I have thoughts:"

2) "The experts say we need 70-80% of the population to get COVID-19 to achieve herd immunity. Let's assume they're wrong (it's certainly possible, they have been before.) Let's assume they're being way overly cautious and we actually only need 40% infection for herd immunity."
close dialog

3) "In Mississippi, our population is 3 million. We've had 36,680 cases so far. We'd need 1.2 MILLION infections to achieve that hypothetical 40% threshold. (Remember, experts say it's double that.)"

4) "Over the last two weeks, our hospital system has started to become stressed to the point of pain. We are seeing the early signs and effects of it becoming overwhelmed. We had to suspend elective surgeries again."

5) "On our worst day of new cases, we had just over 1,000. It has typically been between 700-900 during this most aggressive time. To get to 40% infections, we'd need 3,187 new cases every day for a full year from today. We would need to TRIPLE our worst day -- every day -- for a year."

6) "I'm not one of these guys that immediately dismisses any idea that challenges the expert status quo talking points. I'm pretty skeptical by nature. That's healthy. But herd immunity is not anything like a realistic solution in the short or mid-term. I wish it was."

7) "Unless you're willing to go without hospitals after a car wreck or heart attack, we need a different approach. Right now, despite mixed messages at the beginning, it seems like masks are the best bet. They're a hell of a lot better than widespread shut downs. Please wear one!"

Bob, I absolutely agree with the Governor. I'm an engineer and also a math guy. I ran a very similar exercise for the State of Texas with 29 million population and came to the conclusion that I'll probably be wearing a mask until the day that I die. I'll also throw something else in here, the idea of "herd immunity' is a totally unproven concept. Nobody knows if such a thing actually exists and yet, that is what we are striving for. If it does exist, how long does it last, a lifetime a few years or a few months? We don't know but that is what we are going all in on. We'll see.

When Texas started to open up I watched the people in our little town completely abandon all precautions, no masks, no social distancing, partying hearty over memorial Day and July 4th and posting it all on Facebook. We're starting to pay for it now. There's been a big spike in the number of cases and probably more to come. If that's what they want to do, fair enough, but it just doesn't affect them. It affects everyone they come in contact with. I know a couple of people who are already regretting their actions but it's too late.
