Why will you see a lockdown next year? Well, let’s put it this way: the government will try a lockdown. I’m not sure if the people will go for it, but the government is sure going to try.
Why? Because we will see almost as many coronavirus deaths next year as this year. And if the government is successful in doing a lockdown again, you’ll see almost as many coronavirus deaths the year after that.
This will go on and on and on until we either reach herd immunity or the people wise up.
Will we have a vaccine that can be implemented? I hope so, but I doubt it.
When Dr. Fauci sequestered away huge segments of the population inside their houses, he prevented them from becoming immune to the coronavirus.
The coronavirus is not going to die out. It will move to the southern hemisphere for the winter, infect those people, then return back to America to find virgin territory again.
You see, there will be just as many elderly people next year as this year.
Do you remember those round tubular ice cream treats that were sold many years ago in which you pushed a central stick up in order to lick more ice cream. Well that’s how humanity is. There’s a baby machine pump at the lower end of the stick. It pushes people into older age groups. All those people who died of the coronavirus this year will be replaced by the people right behind them.
Most of the new elderly people were sitting inside their houses this year. They will be easy pickings for the coronavirus, as will the elderly who didn’t die this year.
There is no vaccine; and there is little herd immunity.
Yes, some herd immunity was built up. This happened for sure. Unfortunately, too many people were locked inside their houses. It was these people, especially children and younger people, who, had they been permitted to contract the coronavirus and become infected, would have protected the elderly people.
Do you see what we are doing? We are kicking the can down the road.
Now, some may argue that we can not let the elderly die. They say that the lockdown saved lives. The proponents of extreme social distancing, the lockdown, are very good at making the proponents of herd immunity look cruel.
But we are not cruel. What we are recommending is to quarantine and protect the elderly and the vulnerable while we are allowing herd immunity to build up.
Dr. Fauci didn’t do that. He could have shipped the elderly down south for a few months. He could have created super-lockdown sites for the elderly. That would have been far cheaper economically.
Instead he created a culture of fear that forced low-risk people into their houses where they sequestered themselves into sanctuary status – thus enabling them to become infected next year.
Dr. Fauci’s plan was to protect the elderly by locking everyone down.
What his opponents recommend is to protect the elderly by quarantining them while allowing other low-risk Americans to protect them by contracting the disease.
Lives will be saved by rejecting Dr. Fauci’s advice.
That’s right, more lives will be lost through these lockdowns.
The road to hell is paved with good intentions.
What Dr. Fauci did was pander to the wimps and candy-ass millennials who have to be tucked into bed at night at the age of 35.
It’s too late this year to do the right thing.
Next year we will hopefully be a little smarter.
At any rate, Sweden chose a different route which is to develop herd immunity. It’s not entirely fair to compare the USA and Sweden as they are different countries; they have different demographics, and they sit at different latitudes. Still it will be interesting to see which approach fares better.
Unfortunately, COVID-19 has become a political disease. A lot of money and people’s reputations are bound up in it now.
