Leaked Pentagon memo warns of ’real possibility’ of COVID-19 resurgence

A leaked draft memo has warned that the Defense Department should prepare to operate in a ’globally-persistent’ COVID-19 environment without an effective vaccine until ’at least the summer of 2021’. The memo authored for Secretary of Defense Mark Esper but not yet bearing his signature highlights ’the real possibility of a resurgence of COVID-19’. A spokeswoman said the document was outdated.

There was always going to be a resurgence. Always. Unless we have herd immunity or a vaccine this will always come back. Lockdowns jist delay the inevitable.

Got to keep the sheep riled up and afraid. They dont have the common sense to realize the obvious. In the meantime the rest of us chafe at the bonds of enforced lockdown. Freedom?... what freedom

Nothing more amazing than seeing the "every life is precious" crowd supporting the elderly sacrificing themselves for the sake of the economy. You think I'm kidding? Just go on youtube it's been all over Fox news. Tell me I'm lying.

No one expected the pandemic to just wanish... This is the type of news that should really not hit newspapers, since it either does not suprise you or scares the hell out of you...

I've got something to say about this: https://www.coloradoan.com/story/news/2020/05/16/colorado-changes-how-coronavirus-deaths-state-counted/5198485002/ Coronavirus deaths in US according to CDC? 67,008. That's over 20,000 fewer deaths than previously reported. https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/covid19/index.htm There's something fishy going on. I should mention I already thought so but we do see that they're over reporting coronavirus deaths. I'd be surprised if anyone didn't already know that hospitals reported that coronavirus if it was suspected. Meaning that they weren't tested.

I don't think people realise the point of the lock downs. It's not stop people getting the virus. It's to stop everyone getting it at the same time. The idea is to stagger the spread so hospitals don't get overwhelmed with serious cases. It is extremely likely almost everyone will get the virus at some point and probably multiple times. If a vaccine is created, that's fantastic. If it's not, it could be here to stay for the foreseeable future. If there is no vaccine soon then a huge percentage of elderly people could still die. We can't maintain lock downs and travel bans permanently.

There won't be. Herd immunity....just like there is no herd immunity for hiv... Nor a vaccine... For a long time... Go read about Baltimore four classification viruses... N then realized this one is a 136 slip knot n they have no idea yet where on the loci it transmits for replication.. They barely grasp how it pauses for replication... Keep thinking herd n having the antibody gives u immunity n then watch ur herd thin out... It's a simple genius in the viral world... Stealthy n complex yet simple.. It somehow tricks ur own immune system into flipping on a over response from mast cells up n then ur own body destroys itself at the lung surfactant spiraling u into dic... Which is usually fatal no respirator can stop that... The science on such responses called rage immune responses was only mapped in 2012.. By two scientists who won the Nobel prize for chemistry... This virus very much like ebola in that still no source located... Stop spreading lofty bs.... The fiasco in the brits original response was all about herd immunity.. That failed miserably

I TOLD YOU "oh no it's not true people can get it again" "masks are useless" "Vaccines will work" How many times were you wrong and I right. And here's the next things to happen: Virus explodes in South America and Africa. China forces endebted nations to take their "vaccine" to further take hostage control. The UN globalists force a vaccine on the west. Middle class westerners refuse and fight back. Western economy totally collapses either by design of globalists or by internal conflicts. Elites move money and tech to China to continue working on population control. China becomes new world order face and force religious and thought laws unto all that slowly unfurl into full on satanism with Chinese characteristics. It's hard to see from the just what happens in the midst of war. In the end I believe we will rid ourselves of these monsters.

Of course there will be a resurgence. As states open more people move around and the virus spreads. The death rate will only stay low if the high risk people remain self-quarintined. Why are no medical people talking about this?
