1. At the low end.

And herd immunity with Covid is unproven. A Trump second term is a death lottery.

4. That's their "pro-life" perspective.

I recall hearing them say that "any actions are justified to save one innocent life". I guess they lost that page in their script, or maybe they never really cared that much, or maybe they were lying then and are still lying now.

3. Um, I think Kyle doesn't "do" science very well

It's false that people "must catch Covid" to achieve herd immunity.

5. This also makes the huge assumption that a natural herd immunity is possible.

Long term naturally developed immunity is a real leap of faith wrt coronaviruses.

ie the experiment that kills 6 million Americans could gain little.
