  1. So the cases have risen 16.2% over the last week, but no new deaths? Which indicates the virus may be more contagious, but less dangerous. Which is the normal evolution of viruses as they mutate. Which along with herd immunity is why they always disappear. Our own immune system is far better than any vaccine in creating immunity, current nonsense from the CDC notwithstanding, and is much broader in scope. Natural immunity quite often will encompass mutations, newly named variants for some reason, as well as the original. Vaccines do not. Which do you think might be better at creating herd immunity?
