Interesting. Is there any information about where the peaks are


in terms of percent of population?

Say (totally made up numbers here) herd immunity happens at 80%, if 50% of us are not susceptible, then we'd really only need to get to 30% of the population with anti-bodies to get to that (the math may be more complicated than that, though).

Of course, it'd get tricky because you might have an ethnicity component, but if different places had different portions of the population with susceptibility, then I think we'd also expect the time frames to vary; I don't know how rough the 6/6 characterization is.
