The quicker than expected getting to what looks like the point of herd

immunity (i.e. increasingly unlikely to find a host to infect), is very interesting. I kind of wonder why. A few guesses at what could be happening:
1) More of us have had it then we thinkbut the anti-body testing doesn't suggest it's quite high enoughbut the anti-body testing doesn't seem accurate either.
2) We are doing a good job of social distancing, even those who aren't doing it within their community, are still staying within their community. I've read things by people with a clue that you can model the spread from community to community the same way you can from person to person. This makes it a lot easier to contain in more places versus having to basically wait til it all burns out.
3) Some of us are just unlikely to get it, not even be an asymptomatic carrier, for whatever reason.
