HERETIC OR SAGE: Noted Epidemiologist Throws Cold Water On Social Distancing Theory

Monday, April 13, 2020



 “Social distancing and the lockdown simply prolong the disease. Sequester the infirm and debilitated aged population and those with pre-existing conditions. The rest of us need to get back to work and develop herd immunity.”

 -Steven Hotze, MD

“With all respiratory diseases, the only thing that stops the disease is herd immunity. About 80% of the people need to have had contact with the virus, and the majority of them won’t even have recognized that they were infected, or they had very, very mild symptoms, especially if they are children. So, it’s very important to keep the schools open and kids mingling to spread the virus to get herd immunity as fast as possible, and then the elderly people, who should be separated, and the nursing homes should be closed during that time, can come back and meet their children and grandchildren after about 4 weeks when the virus has been exterminated,” he added
