Afraid there could be a “Second Wave” of C19? Afraid there might be a “Second Wave” of C19? Afraid there may be a “Second Wave” of C19? Afraid that perhaps there will be a “Second Wave” of C19? Afraid that possibly there will be a “Second Wave” of C19?
Let me set your mind at ease:
There will be many “waves”, and increases in infection rates will keep happening until we achieve herd immunity.
This coming “Second Wave” isn’t how it’s portrayed. People somehow believe if we wait in our homes long emough the virus will disappear and no one will get sick. This misconception is dangerous.
A “Second Wave” will happen, and this has nothing to do with the C19 virus mutating into something more virulent, and this has nothing to do with “too soon.”
This has everything to do with herd immunity.
We need more people infected with the virus and producing antibodies. It’s that simple.
If you truly believe waiting at home creates long term safety then you are being misled. To stop the spread of infection the proven science is more people need to be exposed, to get sick, and to recover. 65% to 75% of the world population.
Staying at home slows the spread of the virus. It does not make people immune to the virus. It does keep our health system from being overwhelmed. We’re only putting off the inevitable.
We’ll be flattening the curve many times until we reach herd immunity. This shouldn’t be a surprise.
