We are being handed a “Bait and Switch”. The “30 days to flatten the curve” was to spread out infections over time. It was never about preventing infections. Now we are being told the lock downs must continue to prevent infections. No. With a native R-naught or R0 of 6 to 12 you simply cannot prevent eventual infection.
Hospitals are now way below capacity. We need to start using them for all health issues again.
We have used the flattened curve time to develop effective treatments. From HCQ+Zpack to Ivermectin+ Doxycycline along with sterouda and anticoagulants and more. It is time to now rescue the economy by using those trearments. It is time to address the non-covid backlog of medical needs which are poised to cause more deaths than covid going forward.
Furthermore, it looks like herd immunity is being reached in many countries at about 15% infected. Not 80%. A large part of the population is naturally immune. IMHO likely from a combination of cross immunity to other corona viruses and higher vitamin D and other immune enhancing nutrients.
Evidence, reasoning, and analysis here:
While I was getting ready for this posting, Ossqss raised the same point here (h/t):

That has a very nice time lapse graph of cases by country, showing the drops as we are reaching herd immunity.
