6. Do we have herd immunity to cold or flu?

Those viruses cycle, and may provide seasonal immunity if we catch them; but people can catch several colds in a season or year, and catch the flu (and possibly die) with or without having had a vaccine.

Covid and others viruses may kill you or damage your organs, like rheumatic fever, scarlet fever,
HIV.

Herd immunity isn't going to to happen with Covid. If it runs it's course, unchecked, It will cull the population, causing millions of deaths and disabling millions more.
