Stanford Researchers Looking at Herd Immunity in California

Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From “Stanford Researchers Looking at Herd Immunity in California”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

RUSH: Now, I wanted to go audio sound bite number 1, audio sound bite number 2. Let me make sure I have the appropriate story. (I’ve got so many Stacks of Stuff here.) Yep. Yep. Yep. Yep. Yep. Here we go. Okay. Audio sound bite number 1. This is March 31st — so, about ten days ago — me here on the EIB Network.

RUSH ARCHIVE: I’m not a doctor, and I’m gonna make sure that I am just speaking as a layman here, but it could well be that so many Californians have been exposed to this virus — you know, 5,000 to 7,000 Chinese arrive at California airports every day. You go back and count that up, add it up from December, January, February, what if the people of California have somehow been made immune to it because they’ve been exposed to the virus and don’t have it or found a way to fight it off. It’s a gigantic question. California ought to be the epicenter.

It ought to be ground zero of infection, and it isn’t. Now, the governor clearly says it’s coming. Governor Newsom and the mayor of Los Angeles both say it’s coming, so it may be premature to be commenting on this. But the disparity here in the number of cases and the number of deaths and the number of hospitalizations in California versus, say, New York and some states on the East Coast is striking.

RUSH: Exactly — and herd immunity is the virus arrives, and nobody knows it. Nobody knows it exists. We’re talking about perhaps even last October, November, December. It arrives from China via travelers, and people get sick, and there’s no word about coronavirus. There’s nothing out there to scare people. They just get sick. It’s a respiratory virus.

They think it’s the flu, they think it’s the cold, depending on how bad it is. Some people go to the hospital with it; get checked out. Maybe some people perish. We don’t know because there were no stats. If they perished, I’m sure it was chalked up to the flu. In the meantime, all these people, a lot of people get it with no symptoms. This we know.
