Achieving Herd Immunity: How vaccines and masks are the keys to fight coronavirus | Just The FAQs 1


Without masks and a vaccine, we could reach Herd Immunity from COVID-19, but deaths would skyrocket. We break down the science of it.

The message to vaccinate is not lost on Americans calling their doctors and pharmacists to schedule a flu shot appointment before the start of the 2020-2021 season.

Experts said it's crucial to get vaccinated this year because the coronavirus pandemic has overwhelmed hospitals in parts of the country and taken the lives of more than 176,000 people in the USA, according to Johns Hopkins data.

It's hard to know how COVID-19 will mix with flu season: Will mask wearing and social distancing contain flu transmission as it's meant to do with SARS-CoV-2? Or will both viruses ransack the nation as some schools reopen for in-person learning?

"This fall, nothing can be more important than to try to increase the American public's decision to embrace the flu vaccine with confidence," Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield told the editor of JAMA on Thursday. "This is a critical year for us to try to take flu as much off the table as we can."

    Fake news

  8. Herd immunity happens whether you have a mask or not. Mostly it takes 2 – 4 months for it to end just like when the flu goes around… after 4 months it’s gone. Viruses mutate as they move thru communities.

    Have you figured it out yet why certain cities/states that no longer have a Covid death count…why they are still on lockdown. What’s the common denominator?

  9. Lovely 😍💋 💝💖❤️

  10. The only herd is the mask sheeple who believe the scamdemic.

  11. Ha….we had chicken pox parties when I was a kid….

  12. YouTube doesn’t want you to read this quote.

    “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. …We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.” – Edward Barnays, Author Propaganda

    If you get triggered reading this quote, I suggest looking in the mirror because you are the problem.

  13. “The further a society drifts from the truth the more it will hate those that speak it.”

    “It’s easier to fool someone than to convince them they’ve been fooled.”

    “We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.”

    “The American people don’t believe anything until they see it on TV.”

    If you get triggered reading these quotes, I suggest looking in the mirror because you are the problem.

  15. Whoever wrote this story is badly, badly misinformed and did not do the necessary research. Sweden’s case numbers are way, way down and they are not even having one death per day. Also, many researchers have reported that herd immunity may be achieved at 15 to 20%, not the 70% reported in this story. In regards to masks, explain California which has had a mask ordinance for months, but continues to have ongoing problems with cases and deaths. Very bad reporting.

  16. ‘progressive’ Sweden!!!!

  17. Wow, how incredible, tell me something I don’t know, it’s logic more then science.

  18. The only thing I know is they will never inject a poisonous vaccine into my body.

    Well than were there! The Recovery rate has always hovered around 75% CDC page…but evidently ignorance still controls the SHEEPLE.
