A captive population is not a good sampling group for measuring any
sort of prediction.


That’s bull**** with the question of whether herd immunity works.

It is in fact the best group to use for measuring that.


Herd immunity happens in an open environment where NOT all people
actually get infected.

Herd immunity happens in ANY environment — eventually. The question is how
many members of a herd must get infected (or vaccinated) before their immunity
serves to protect the remaining members of the herd from infection. By
reducing the other variables such as distancing, the prison "experiment" shows
that the number for SARS-CoV-2 is MUCH higher than Makary's 55%.

otoh, the Marion facility in Ohio had around 2000 positive cases, most
of which were asymptomatic. I could never get hard figures on the deaths
but despite having an aging prison population they were minimal. Had the
cells been filled with dying prisoners the media would have been all
over it.

People can't seem to make up their minds. One person brings up the
prison where everyone was infected, then complains herd immunity doesn't
work, and someone else counters that argument and conclusion.

Unlike you, who has your mind all made up and won't ever change. Only
problem is that it's almost all wrong. Sometimes nature fixes that.
Ask Herman Cain.

Doesn’t take any brilliance to work that out, or to
notice that that was the time when the TB vaccine
was first available and mass xray screening for TB
started and that its much more likely that was the
reason for the big drop in TB deaths at that time.

Of course it does. You have to get something like 80% who have caught
the disease or who have been vaccinated to see it under control.
