I was watching CNN earlier today and they had an expert on from Yale University. He said that pandemics are episodic in nature and that they move in waves and will wash backwards and forwards over the earth until there is a level of herd immunity. By which time it is endemic in the species and we will never be able to fully eradicate it, much like flu is endemic in the human species. The difference being that covid 19 is a least 10 more deadly than flu. If it mutates like flu does each year then the level of herd immunity will be reduced and there will be major flare ups in future.
The government looks like it is going to throw at least a trilllion £££ to try and get it under control this time.
The worrying thing is that what the bloke from Yale said was that it was inevitable that China would have another outbreak.... everywhere will. .... it comes in waves remember....... until we have built up a level of herd immunity.
How much havoc will this wreak on the world economy....... at the moment they are talking recession...... if the Yale bod is right then we are staring down the barrel of an economic depression with governments hamstrung by owing trillion upon trillion trying to fight this disease..... its a real Doomsday scenario.
Let’s hope he is wrong.
I will be sitting on my hands for the time being...... waiting for loo rolls to reappear in the shops
Anybody ever watch a series called “Doomsday preppers”?....... everybody thought they were cranks...... no ones is laughing at them now.
