“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.
