‘Powerful vaccine in itself’: Trump says it’s ‘terrific’ that nearly 15 per cent of Americans got Covid

Quote:
Donald Trump has said it is “terrific” that nearly 15 per cent of Americans have contracted the coronavirus since the outbreak began in the US, citing the “powerful vaccine" of herd immunity.

During an Operation Warp Speed Vaccine Summit on Tuesday, Mr Trump was asked how Americans in areas with surging cases should protect themselves over Christmas ahead of the likely distribution of a vaccine.

In response, Mr Trump deferred to the Centres for Disease Control guidelines before citing growing immunity in the population as a result of the virus’ virulent spread throughout the country.

“Plus, you do have an immunity. You develop immunity over a period of time, and I hear we’re close to 15 per cent. I’m hearing that, and that is terrific,” Mr Trump said.

“That’s a very powerful vaccine in itself. And just tremendous progress has been made”

Is it “ terrific” to be hooked up to a ventilator?

We are less than 5000 deaths away from 300,000 official COVID deaths in America (hint: official = underestimate). At the current death rates, we'll be there by the end of the week.

the US population is 330 million.

Fifteen percent of that would be fifty million. Not 71 million.

As some point you have to sit back and just laugh at the Trumpster's incessant ability to self-promote. Trying for herd immunity only makes sense if you don't have a vaccine.

I know people think Trump's causing his followers to ignore Covid guidelines. I'm inclined to believe those people would likely ignore the guidelines with or without his prompting.
