Tragic Covid Milestone

America has reached a tragic milestone in Covid deaths. At least 160,000 Americans died in the last 6 months. Recently, the U.S. reported more than 60,000 new coronavirus cases on average. Globally, America has more than 25% of all cases. Nearly 300,000 Americans could be dead from COVID-19 by the 2020 election.  According to health experts, 70,000 lives could be saved if people wear masks.

Anthony Fauci, Trump’s top infectious-disease expert, says the United States can avoid another shutdown if Americans unite. Fauci also contradicted Trump by admitting that COVID-19 will likely never be eradicated or just “go away.”

I don’t think we’re going to eradicate this from the planet … because it’s such a highly transmissible virus that that seems unlikely,” Fauci said to Reuters. “But what I think we can do with a combination of a good vaccine and attention to public health measures —  then I think we can get behind this.”

There seems to be a misperception that either you shut down completely and damage a lot of things, mental health, the economy, all kinds of things, or let it rip and do whatever you want,” Fauci told POLITICO. “There’s a stepwise fashion that you can open up the economy successfully.” 

Some recent studies discovered that a large proportion of the population — 20 to 50 percent of people — might have immunity. These people have immunity assassins called T cells.  These T cells recognize and fight the coronavirus despite having never encountered it before. Hopefully, they will be able to study and replicate these T-cells to avoid the next tragic milestone.
