Trump’s new strategy is to tell millions of Americans that are and will be infected with Covid. In other words, your lives are expendable for the greater good. Experts have warned this herd immunity approach won’t work and is a criminal pursuit.
If he did nothing, Trump’s repeated the claim if he didn’t shut down international travel from China, we would have seen 2.2 million Americans die from Covid-19. Trump is now considering this dangerously lethal Herd Immunity Strategy that will essentially throw our country completely open to COVID-19 mass infections and sacrifice as many as 4 million Americans’ lives. If only 83 million Americans become infected, they essentially do nothing to stop the pandemic besides funding research into possible vaccines.
Biden tells seniors: ‘to Trump, you’re expendable’
If all 330 million people in the United States become infected could kill well over 10 million Americans if it remains as lethal as it has been to this point.
The vaccines’ problem is becoming apparent as two more biotech companies trying to develop a safe and effective vaccine have been forced to suspend their tests because of alarming side effects. On Friday, even Pfizer wouldn’t guarantee the vaccine they are trying to develop to prevent coronavirus infections may not be a sure thing even though it’s hopeful of getting emergency approval from the FDA for its preventive.
Trump’s refusal to ask Americans to wear masks will likely cost as many as 100,000 lives by December 31, 2020. The irony is Trump is many of those being infected this past week were Trump supporters who have attended the President’s campaign events this past week and will go to those events in the closing three weeks before the election.
