I searched looked on Mayo Clinic website to see if they had information on herd immunity. It didn't. However, I found Connect.

@pegsmetana– Whoo! Welcome to Connect. There have been so many roadblocks to finding reliable tests and studies that it would be difficult to answer your concerns. I did find this:

Do you have a particular personal concern that I can help you with?

Dr. Poland, will you please address if the power of ultraviolet light kills COVID-19 or just reduce the number of cases? Thank you

@merepreb, Thank you for the link discussing "herd immunity". The article gives an excellent explanation. Well worth the read.

For those of us who don't (won't, can't) do podcasts or video, these are useless without the transcript posted as well.
Thank you

@caroleramsay– Hello. I have to use the CC at the bottom of the video to read it. It shows the words at the bottom. Some of the videos are difficult to understand or the speaker is too fast. Would this help?

Thank you, but sadly. no. I am speaking of people like myself who don't run the video at all – and ONLY want to/need to read the transcript. (Many Americans lack access to the internet making video impossible, while reading is still do- able thru mobile data)

COMMENT

I would like to know whether the Dr would prescribe Hydroxyclorophine and azithromicine and zinc for Covid 19

COMMENT

@smokie– The CDC has published a warning against taking this medicine for COVID-19. I won't speak for the doctor, but I doubt that he would.

@caroleramsay– Ah, ha. I misread your post. You want them mailed to you if they are available?
@colleen can you help Carole?

COMMENT

No, I would like them posted under the video like most websites have. That way everyone can read the information. 👍

COMMENT

My point is simply that in posting only podcasts and videos, without transcripts, Mayo is seriously out of touch.

@caroleramsay– I understand. I have forwarded your comments to her. I would have to say that Mayo is the top hospital in the country and cater to millions of people who do have computers. How are you familiar with the videos and podcasts if you don't have the internet?
