Your first line says herd immunity won't work, then you continue on to spout a plan for herd immunity.garyboy wrote: ↑Thu Oct 08, 2020 11:32 pmwhat i am saying is that lockdowns don't work
herd immunity won't work
and that the situation is now at the critical stage where this turning point of the contagion could become a catastrophe, but could, by adopting a different world strategy, be less disastrous than continuing with the failed accepted solutions.
Protect the vulnerable .. by age, medical condition, mentally struggling, or afeared, or even just lazy or opportunists .. by measures that the several hundred billions of pounds now already spent, could have made nearly viable. there could be blocks of flats dedicated to old gits and infirm (like wot i live in lol) policed by monitors locally. .. or even permanent lockdown areas containing nursing homes etc etc etc.
No testing, no tracing, no failed expensive apps, ..
Nightingale hospitals for covid only, clear the scandalous backlog of other medical emergencies etc etc etc
Big stores to reintroduce one way systems.
No thought of herd immunity, as it may be temporary anyway. .. just natural immunity helped by some gained immunity.
The point is that some people can resist the virus, and some set off an autoimmune response which is what kills victims ,,
So, let everyone not vulnerable continue as old normal ..... why? ... because the overall consequences are far far less than on the present course of `actions` which are devastating our health, wellbeing, economy, businesses, etc etc etc ..
Yeah great some people will be ok let's let it run rampant and see how that goes, I know there's over 210,000 people in America that'll tell you it went absolutely swimmingly.
And clear the "scandalous backlog" in the NHS if you can find the extra staff needed to run it as normal with increased amount of people on sick leave because they're ending up with it, extra staff on the ITU's to deal with people with AND staff the nightingale hospitals you've said to use maybe you should run the NHS.
The lockdown did work, it worked everywhere that did one, it vastly reduced the infection rate and overall number of cases. What didn't work was letting people back out to be Muppets and go and spread it again.
Its not hard, wash your hands, dont go out if your not well, don't get to close to people and wear a mask. I feel like I'm going to need to start telling these lockdown doesn't do anything people that they shouldn't be licking strangers in the street soon.
