    “The US inability to manage the health crisis on a national basis. This is damaging our economic recovery and our image globally.” I’m wondering what Evan would suggest the US do or should have done? I think he may be virtue signaling to his fellow liberal CEO’s here.

      All the big corporations are scared sell-outs to the Wokerati.

      More and more, it looks like Sweden had it right all along. All of their numbers are going way down now and they may have reached herd immunity, while the much of the rest of Europe sees spikes. What does Evan think about them apples?

      And face mask compliance in Sweden is about 14%, one of the lowest rates in the world and Sweden never locked down. Hello, Evan? Care to comment?

        What are you talking about? Sweden is a disaster. Everything they did was wrong.

          Your article is from June. Today is July 31. FYI.

          Care to update your statistics with the spikes now going on in several countries in Europe? Care to update your statistics with today’s numbers from Sweden.

          If you are a serious, independent thinker, ask me to link to today’s numbers.

            Comparing us to Sweden may not be the best comparison, when they were asked to social distance they actually abide. Unlike here in America where too many people wouldn’t listen to the recommendations of our healthcare professionals. heck, even today president bone spurs is tweeting about Fauci again. (He’s so jealous people like Fauci more).

            I don’t need to ask you for anything. Yes, there numbers are coming down, but Sweden still leads the world in per capita deaths. If sacrificing that large a percentage of your citizens to reach “herd immunity” sounds like a good idea to you, your thinking is problematic.

            You are calling the end of the game at half time.

            There are only two outcomes: herd immunity or waiting for a vaccine, which for many viruses often never happens at all.

            In between, pretending we know the final outcome and can criticize based on science that is uncertain and developing rapidly on this virus, is just silly.

            There are massive human costs to the lock down. Ignoring them is heartless.

            Craig;

            It’s apparent that more than a few people, mostly Leftist Socialists, who believe in practicing ‘flattening the curve’, don’t understand the basic underlying premise that it won’t reduce the ultimate number of cases (significantly).

            Stats, Math, and Actuary majors understand that the area under a distribution curve sums to 1.0 regardless of its variance. The term ‘flattening’ should have been replaced with ‘elongating’ or ‘pushing out to the tail’ long ago when Flip-Flop Fauci and his clueless troop first used it in pressers.

            “flip-flop Fauci.”

            Folks, that’s why we’re in the predicament we’re in and why the rest of the world is laughing at the way we’re handling this mess. You have a bunch of people who think a reality star without any medical background whatsoever and who spends his time tweeting things like “LIBERATE MICHIGAN” and retweeting videos of his supporters shouting “white power” in between protesting the removal of Confederate monuments knows more than someone who’s spent the majority of his life practicing and studying medicine.

            Pathetic.

        Herd immunity does not exist with COVID-19. It does not appear so far there is any extended period of personal immunity from the disease, either, based on the number of repeat-COVID cases reported.

          We do not know that yet. Herd immunity is not personal immunity. It is the tendency for a pandemic to die out when it becomes difficult to infect more people.

          There is a significant body of science indicating that many people, perhaps most, have some sort of immunity already, created by an immunity developed to a different virus in the past.

          While it MAY prove true that personal immunity developed by people who contract Covid 19 is NOT permanent, we don’t know that yet. The virus has already mutated (one reason infections in the US are faster spreading than in China orginally – we are essentially facing a new strain of the virus).

          The point is that ANY judgments about government intervention are wildly premature. The science is a long way from settled on Covid 19 and we keep learning new things almost every week.

          …………
          Which is it?:
          ‘Does not exist’ (a definitive statement)
          ‘Does not appear so, thus far’ (a non-definitive statement)

            Does not exist = statement about COVID herd immunity
            Does not appear so, thus far = statement about personal immunity.
            Two sentences, each addressing an aspect of COVID immunity as we know it today.
