There are whisperings in the scientific community that herd immunity for Covid-19 may require less than about 20% of the population to become ill from the virus.


Here is the argument.

  1. normally, herd immunity is acquired when 1-1/R0 of a population has been infected and immune (at least for some time period, possibly forever. In the worst case where R0=5 (Covid-19) in the absence of this normally means that 80% of people need to become ill before herd immunity is achieved.
  2. a puzzling feature of covid-19 is that many infected people are asymptomatic. This has not been understood. However it is now being speculated that such individuals have T-Cell immunity acquired through other coronaviruses such as the common cold. Pre-existing immunity to SARS-CoV-2: the knowns and unknowns
  3. It is estimated that 45% of people infected with covid-19 are asymptomatic ACP Journals.
  4. If it is assumed that these 45% of people have pre-existing immunity to SARS-CoV-2 then we are much closer to herd immunity that previously thought. In fact only about a further 35% of the people need to be exposed when R0=5.
  5. In practice, modest social distancing and face covering measures reduce R0 well below 5 and closer to 3 or 2.5 even without lockdowns. https://www.thelancet.com/pdfs/journals/lancet/PIIS0140-6736(20)30567-5.pdf
  6. This means that only 15-20% of people many need to become ill before herd immunity is achieved. This may already be the case in Sweden, large cities such as Madrid, London etc.
  7. Once herd immunity is achieved the pandemic dies out naturally and relatively quickly. This happened in the case of Spanish Flu.

If this theory turns out to be correct it is very good news because it means that herd immunity is being achieved naturally.

Big Pharma and the medical-industrial complex stand to make tens of billions in profits from a vaccine that may not, in fact, be needed. It is very, very likely that they will attempt to suppress this science.

SARS-CoV-2 may be synthetic.


"The COVID-19 pandemic caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 has led to over 910,000 deaths worldwide and unprecedented decimation of the global economy. Despite its tremendous impact, the origin of SARS-CoV-2 has remained mysterious and controversial. The natural origin theory, although widely accepted, lacks substantial support. The alternative theory that the virus may have come from a research laboratory is, however, strictly censored on peer-reviewed scientific journals. Nonetheless, SARS-CoV-2 shows biological characteristics that are inconsistent with a naturally occurring, zoonotic virus. In this report, we describe the genomic, structural, medical, and literature evidence, which, when considered together, strongly contradicts the natural origin theory. The evidence shows that SARS-CoV-2 should be a laboratory product created by using bat coronaviruses ZC45 and/or ZXC21 as a template and/or backbone. Building upon the evidence, we further postulate a synthetic route for SARS-CoV-2, demonstrating that the laboratory-creation of this coronavirus is convenient and can be accomplished in approximately six months. Our work emphasizes the need for an independent investigation into the relevant research laboratories. It also argues for a critical look into certain recently published data, which, albeit problematic, was used to support and claim a natural origin of SARS-CoV-2. From a public health perspective, these actions are necessary as knowledge of the origin of SARS-CoV-2 and of how the virus entered the human population are of pivotal importance in the fundamental control of the COVID-19 pandemic as well as in preventing similar, future pandemics."

Based on the numbers of new cases per day now and the numbers when we went into full lockdown i would say the Govt is reluctant to repeat the actions of earlier this year. The 2.5 stage in Dublin is already proof of their hesitation in doing so.

Let us hope people do the right thing and wear the mask and maintain the rules of common sense.

I genuinely would like to hear From Start to Finish - gemma or even Jim Corr explain their theory as to what is going on .

Its all well and good retweeting bits and pieces here and there , but what exactly is the theory on Covid-19 .

please gemma or jim explain the whole thing in an article or video from START to Finish and then we can all make informed decisions as to whether you have a point or not

Whatever the Cov 19 was, like Elvis, it left the building late April /early May just like any other flu type virus,
