At this rate, a vaccine is never going to matter in the U.S.


In July, we thought we were only picking up 1 case for every 10 true infected. Let's say we have that down to 4:1 now through improved testing (although I doubt we've actually gotten it that low). Lots of states still aren't doing anywhere near the testing they need. We're averaging >100k new cases per day over the last 10 days.

That would mean we're getting 0.13% of the U.S. population infected every day. Just a little shy of 1% per week - and growing. For the U.S. at least, I don't think a vaccine even matters at this point. We're going to reach maximum infection and endemic equilibrium before one could be mass-administered.
