To achieve ‘herd immunity’ against a virus, at least 50% of the population has to be immune.

That means 50% of us need to get COVID-19 before “herd immunity” kicks in.

Current death rate of COVID-19 in the US: 5.1%

Pop. of US: 328.2 million

50 % of US population: 164.1 million

5.1% of 164.1 million: 8,369,100 people.
