“Herd Immunity is another name for mass murder”

Dr. William Haseltine, who is best known for his groundbreaking work on HIV/AIDS and the human genome, issued a strict warning Wednesday that using herd immunity to defeat coronavirus could result in millions of American deaths.

Herd immunity is another word for mass murder,” the former Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Public Health said on CNN’s’ “New Day.” “I’m extremely concerned that the president is being advised by people who speak of herd immunity.”

If the virus is allowed to grow, unchecked, in hopes of wearing itself out, “we are looking at two to six million Americans dead, not just this year, but every year,” Haseltine added. “The reason for that is that there is no such thing as herd immunity.”…

“This is an unmitigated disaster for our country to have people at the highest levels of our government countermanding our best public health officials,” Haseltine said. “We know this epidemic can be put under control, other countries have done it. We are doing the opposite.”

The corrupt political hack-in-chief sitting in the White House, right now, is perfectly willing to let millions die on the scale of the worst plagues in history to benefit corporate profits. A plan which ceases to exist as you run out of people to run American industries.

    ‘We want them infected’: Trump appointee demanded ‘herd immunity’ strategy, emails reveal https://news.yahoo.com/want-them-infected-trump-appointee-171003633.html
    “The emails represent an unusual window on the internal deliberations of the Trump administration, and the tensions between political appointees like Paul Alexander — a part-time professor at a Canadian university — and staff members in health agencies. On Sept. 16, HHS announced that Alexander would be leaving the department, just days after POLITICO first reported on his efforts to shape the CDC’s famed Morbidity and Mortality and Weekly Reports and pressure government scientist Anthony Fauci from speaking about the risks of Covid-19 to children.
    In a statement, an HHS spokesperson said that Alexander’s demands for herd immunity “absolutely did not” shape department strategy. [re: Dr. Paul E. Alexander, PhD, Senior Advisor to the Assistant Secretary for Covid-19 Pandemic policy, Office of the Assistant Secretary of Public Affairs, US Department of Health and Human Services, Washington, DC see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Elias_Alexander ]
    Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.), who chairs the coronavirus subcommittee, said in a statement that the documents “show a pernicious pattern of political interference by Administration officials.”
    “As the virus spread through the country, these officials callously wrote, ‘who cares’ and ‘we want them infected,'” Clyburn added. “They privately admitted they ‘always knew’ the President’s policies would cause a ‘rise’ in cases, and they plotted to blame the spread of the virus on career scientists.”
    Clyburn said that the documents — which the Trump administration only released to his subcommittee after the election, more than two months after his probe began — underscore why HHS must cooperate with his investigation and that CDC Director Redfield must appear for an interview about an email that he allegedly told staff to delete. Otherwise, “I will be forced to start issuing subpoenas,” Clyburn said.
