Fauci Predicts Massive Death Toll If Rules Are Eased

Aug 14, 2020

Herd immunity is reached when around 70% to 90% of a population becomes immune to a disease either through infection and recovery or vaccination. When that happens, the disease is less likely to spread to people who aren’t immune because there just aren’t enough infectious carriers to reach them.

It is still unclear whether survivors of Covid-19 have immunity, though some have still suggested that allowing Covid-19 to plow through populations might help reach herd immunity more quickly if possible — but it would be a disaster for hospitals.

Doctors would be overwhelmed and more people would die, not just from coronavirus but from other infections, too.
