Official scientific reports and data show that the United States is about to hit a key benchmark for attaining “herd immunity,” based on CDC data and expert assessments.

Here are more sci-related facts from the official reports of Mayo Clinic, CDC and many more.
“Natural immunity is one of the most often overlooked factors in the fight against the Covid pandemic. Until the SARS-CoV-2 virus began spreading internationally from Wuhan, China in October 2019, it was a widely recognized component of the public health goal of acquiring herd immunity.
Herd immunity occurs “when a large portion of a community (the herd) becomes immune to a disease, making the spread of disease from person to person unlikely,” as the Mayo Clinic defines the term. “As a result, the whole community becomes protected — not just those who are immune.”
“There are two main paths to herd immunity for COVID-19 — infection and vaccines,” the article states. “Herd immunity can be reached when enough people in the population have recovered from a disease and have developed protective antibodies against future infection.”
“However, there are some major problems with relying on community infection to create herd immunity to the virus that causes COVID-19”:
* Reinfection. It’s not clear how long you are protected from getting sick again after recovering from COVID-19. Even if you have antibodies, you could get COVID-19 again.
* Health impact. Experts estimate that in the U.S., 70% of the population — more than 200 million people — would have to recover from COVID-19 to halt the pandemic.
Yale Epidemiology Professor Dr Harvey Risch set the record straight in October.
“People can get infected while the vax is working fully, but they’re relatively protected from very severe outcomes, which is a good thing, by and large, for the people who take it,” Dr Risch said. “But they really need much more natural immunity from the infection going forward, in order to prevent what they’re seeing. And they need that natural immunity to combat other viruses, other strains that may be coming as well. And for longer-lasting protection, natural immunity is much longer-lasting that vaxxed immunity.”
