A certain country in Asia has been seeing asymptomatic pockets of Covid all over it in recent days, particularly on college campuses and in Apartment buildings that are easily isolated (any place that will not affect GDP or business in any way). All asymptomatic cases it would appear. Also that country’s ‘leading health expert’ said that the local covid vaccine brings severe illness from Covid down to 0.1%. Also he said that herd immunity would be reached at 85% vaccinated which has now been surpassed (the magic of Science… political Science).
So, it looks as if the asymptomatic cases will spread around the country completely in the following weeks, be found out to be nothing, and then I suspect that in about 8 weeks, or far less, that this large country in Asia will be completely open to international travel again. The effects of Covid having minimally shut down anything in that country and life operating almost normally for 2 years internally. With Covid mostly forgotten about by most people there, for at least 80% of that time.
The shut downs taking place across college campuses and in random apartment buildings are just taking place for 48 hours at a time (because Science). I would not be surprised if the country is completely done with Covid in 3-4 weeks and declares immunity.
All the above was as expected once the world started opening up again and got over the hysteria. None of the above is confirmed, but is pretty much exactly in keeping with what myself and a couple of clued-in fellow scientific friends of mine had predicted since a few weeks after the whole fiasco began.
