A recent study from Fundstrat, an independent financial research firm, found that at least 50 percent of residents in 10 states have either been infected with the coronavirus or vaccinated against it, meaning those states are creeping closer to “presumable herd immunity.”
CNBC host Carl Quintanilla posted to Twitter a snippet from the study, which also cited the COVID Tracking Project and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as its sources.
Citing Fundstrat’s study, which was published Wednesday, he wrote, “FUNDSTRAT: Slowly, ‘the US is getting to that threshold of presumable herd immunity,’ as seen in this ranking of states by ‘combined penetration’ (vaccinations + infections).”
“As we commented in the past, the key figure is the combined value >60%,” the study reportedly added.
