Coronavirus Cases Not Increasing as Expected in Reopened Areas

Last month when Red states like Texas & Georgia began efforts to reopen, so-called "experts" said there would be a huge spike in deaths & infections. They were wrong.

A former physician with the World Health Organization says the states that reopened are actually doing rather well.

Sophie Mann reports:

A former official of the World Health Organization said on Tuesday evening that there has not been an increase in coronavirus cases around the world as countries and societies begin to lift restrictions.
"As you look at all the data around the world where people have come out of lockdowns, things are actually going along quite nicely on the whole, and it's strange," Professor Karol Sikora, an oncologist and professor at the University of Buckingham Medical School, said.
When asked about increasing immunity to the virus, Sikora said, "there are almost certainly other immune mechanisms going on, including T-cells, helper cells, natural killer cells, a whole range of things that we don't understand as well as we understand antibodies."
In reference to the antibody tests that have become popular, Sikora observed, "You measure what you can see, rather than what you probably really need to measure."
Sikora is skeptical of the "doom-laden theories" about a second wave of the virus coming in the fall. He says that sometimes a pandemic's conclusion can be mysterious and initially difficult for the medical and scientific communities to understand. "We've seen them peter out, we don't understand this petering out, despite all the very sophisticated computer mathematical models we've seen, we just don't know what's going to happen."
