COVID-19: Survival of the Fittest!

Herd immunity relies on a large part of the population being immune to certain diseases!

It is appalling to see politicians that we’ve voted into office playing with our well-being! How come so many of them have suddenly become such a die-hard proponent of the theory of survival-of-the-fittest? So far, epidemiological data suggests that only about 2% of us will die of COVID-19!  That which marks us, the two-percenter group, to become martyrs for humanity, is that most of us possess one or a few co-morbidities for COVID-19!  Then, why did they love so dearly to keep us alive in the first place? Why didn’t they let go of us until now? Had it not been for our deep pockets to pay for our personalized and dazzling life support devices, or had it not been for the benevolence of others to toss in their tax monies our way, we might have already been gone long before COVID-19 started knocking at our doors!

There is a prevailing concept out there—the herd immunity! It is in tune with the theory of the survival-of-the-fittest! When we let people out from their sanctuaries without testing to see who is already immune to COVID, we’re just playing Russian roulette with them. Only 2% of them will die, and the rest will emerge as a much stronger homo sapiens! 

Is this what’s truly happening out there? As far as I am concerned, if this is the game, and if everyone is aware of the rules, then all I can say is: “bring it on!” 

What’s your take on this?   

Science that is marred with politics blinds us all, left and right alike! We have to ascend above our politically fueled and big-corp-motivated sciences that distort our world view. It is only then that we can clearly see our world—isn’t it a beautiful world (click and see)!    

If you are in search of truth, and secrets of health and longevity, you are in the right place, just tag along and let’s explore it all together!

    The crux of the matter is this: Are we willing to suffer a 2, 3 or even up to 4% casualty rate in the war against Corona, even if it kills one or a few of our own close friends or relatives? Or do we desire financial security in our lives, that is definitely jeopardized if we keep our shops closed for much longer. It would have been lovely to have it both ways. But the reality is that we can’t have it both ways!

    When I look at the history of mankind, I see that we’ve used to deal with all prior pandemics by confronting them and accepting our casualties. It would been nice if we had a vaccine for COVID-19, but we don’t have it yet! It would be nice if we knew who has positive IgG serology. But we don’t! Why is this important? Because based on what we know from history of other closely related viral pandemics, those with traces of IgG may have some levels of protection against COVID. These are the people who can do our legwork in the field. Of course, we should also be ready to honor them and dearly reimburse them for what they will do in the field for all of us.

    Do you know what’s the recipe for success in the post-Covid era? If we can blend the two outlooks coherently together so that it can be a win-win situation everyone! This may require some sacrifices! We have to tighten our belts a little! But if all of us, play it by the same rule the game is going to be fair for everyone! Is this possible?
