TASK B) MAIN DISCUSSION POST: NOTE!!! PLEASE READ BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO RESPOND TO THIS DISCUSSION-–Your discussion grade depends on your ability to follow these instructions.
In responding to this discussion, PLEASE DO NOT SPEAK ON: POLITICAL STANDPOINTS, RELIGIOUS BELIEFS, SOCIAL PROTESTS OR OTHER ISSUES CONCERNING COVID-19. These topics often incite their own heated debates, and that is not the purpose of the questions in this discussion. I understand that EVERYONE HAS AN OPINION, however, I am NOT asking for personal OPINIONS at this juncture, I am asking for clear academically sound responses to the VIDEO and READING material.
- From the Global Pandemic video and other course material sources, How is Covid-19 described by the scientists? (Do not use a dictionary definition) and why is the effectiveness of “herd immunity” so hotly debated within the SCIENTIFIC community? Provide detailed information from the video, chapter readings and other CREDIBLE academic sources. Please do not provide pages of information and yes, you must CITE all sources.
