Response to BlueWavePsych (Original post)

13. On one of Rachel's recent shows she discussed this "herd immunity" hypothesis...

 

Her investigation of how it would work, per the statistics, was that "herd immunity" would be achieved when 65% of the population had it. That would include everyone, from asymptomatic to dying. The statistical death rate of those who get infected is from 1% to 5%. Using the lower 1% fatality, would result in over 2,000,000 deaths.

THAT is how they should be explaining it. NO ONE would find those numbers of deaths acceptable, just so businesses could open back up.
