A music festival will be held next month in Wisconsin designed to give people immunity against the new coronavirus.
As live concerts are canceled worldwide, a three-day ‘Herd Immunity Fest’ is scheduled in Ringle from July 16-18,
The event will take place outdoors at the Q&Z Expo Center, which can hold about 10,000 people.
The name of the music festival is a play about the idea that if enough people contract the virus, they will build up antibodies and be immune to a second infection or contagion to others.
Experts and health critics say vulnerable populations, such as the elderly and immunocompromised, are still at high risk, and that there is insufficient evidence that people are immune once they have been infected with COVID-19.
Furthermore, they warn that large gatherings can become super-secretary events.

” When the blockage first occurred, my first thought was correct, we can all do 2 weeks, then it went on and on, things got canceled, I started to worry about people not only for this Covid, but also mental, physical, financial, ‘one of the organizers wrote on Facebook.
‘As humans we NEED another human contact. MUSIC itself is great, but live broadcasts, as I’m sure everyone knows, is not the same thing we need LIVE, feel it to the bone, shiver down the spine MUSIC with the people around us. ‘ ‘.
A lineup has already been established that includes artists such as Bobaflex, Dope Dope, Nonpoint, Royal Bliss and Static-X.
Tickets sell for $ 105.50 for a three-day pass. The website says the grounds can hold 10,000 people, but a maximum of 2,500 is allowed so everyone can distance themselves socially.
Since then, the Facebook page has been removed, but the ticker page is still operational.
While the idea of holding an outdoor music festival sounds far-fetched, a recent poll found that Wisconsin is the state with the second-largest coronavirus restrictions after South Dakota.
In March, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said that collective immunity from the coronavirus will likely not occur.
Although people who have been infected will have accumulated antibodies, There are not enough Americans who have contracted the disease to prevent it from spreading in communities.
“People who are infected, there is no doubt … that if they recover from an infection, they have immunity that will protect them with the same particular pathogen, in this case, the coronavirus,” said CNN presenter Jim Sciutto. .
‘If people are infected, I don’t think it will rise to the level of protection of the herd community. [A]At the community level, there would not have been enough infections to really have enough immune protection.
Public health officials have warned for years that vaccines protect not only people but the community as a whole in what is known as ‘collective immunity’.
This occurs when the vast majority of a community, between 80 and 95 percent, becomes immune so that if a disease is introduced, it cannot spread.
Therefore, those who cannot be vaccinated, including the sick, very young and very old, are protected.
Currently, it has been confirmed that less than one percent of the US population. The US, 2.3 million people, have the virus.
