Covid illness results in lifelong immunity

The statement

“People who had mild COVID-19 have long-lasting antibody protection, according to a study by researchers from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.   …..

“Last fall, there were reports that antibodies wane quickly after infection with the virus that causes COVID-19, and mainstream media interpreted that to mean that immunity was not long-lived,” said Ali Ellebedy, senior author of the study and an associate professor of pathology & immunology at Washington University.

“But that’s a misinterpretation of the data. It’s normal for antibody levels to go down after acute infection, but they don’t go down to zero; they plateau. Here, we found antibody-producing cells in people 11 months after first symptoms. These cells will live and produce antibodies for the rest of people’s lives. That’s strong evidence for long-lasting immunity,” he added.’

My take on it.

No kidding.

If you were to ask a competent immunologist what happens normally in the advent of a viral infection, this is what you would have been told.  These researchers are simply saying that SARS-CoV-2 has proved to be no different from what happens normally.

It is reasonable to ask why this was not the starting assumption for the formation of a public policy response.  Eminent individuals certainly made that point at the time.  Professor Cahill, if I recall correctly, was one.

It is reasonable to ask why this norm is still not informing public policy.

Again the question is Why?

And while we muse, the human immune system, perhaps our greatest personal asset, is under assault world-wide from a gene therapy injection program that is at best ill-conceived, and at worst malign.  The human body is a lot smarter than any government.   But it is not impregnable.

Covid: “Natural immunity is way better”

The statement

“Every scientist in the world knows that natural immunity is way better than vaccine immunity.”

Quoted by Martin Geddes on Telegram, 26 May 2021

 

My take on it

We must allow Dr McCullough some poetic licence. I don’t know that every scientist in the world agrees about anything.

That said, this core truth needs to be shouted from the rooftops – that natural immunity is effective, safe, and free. Vaccination is none of those things.

And those who really know this field of scientific endeavour, know that to be true.

For which reason, our innate immune system is to be revere, boosted and protected.

The experimental gene therapy (aka ‘the jab’) being promoted by politicians and biocrats as a policy response to Covid-19 is a direct, intentional and probably irreversible assault on that priceless asset.

‘What stops a virus is natural immunity.’

The statement:

“A government cannot stop a virus. What stops a virus is natural immunity. It’s impossible to stop a virus by government decree.”

My take on it

Natural immunity is a phenomenon. It is just what happens, in nature. All the time. Everywhere. To everyone.

Like gravity.

Our survival depends on our immune system. And our immune system is kept primed by constant infection, involving trillions of tiny players, in a dynamic that we are not even close to really understanding.

In a community, the time comes when sufficient individuals have become immune that a particular virus finds it hard to hitch a ride, and to replicate.

Natural immunity is free, quick, and in most cases automatic. In the minority of cases where it is deemed likely to fail, preventive measures can be taken to boost the immunity of those at risk. These measures include emotional wellbeing, supplements, good nutrition, fresh air and sunlight.

And of course in some very few cases the infection will become symptomatic, even to the point of requiring medical care. Gladly we know a lot more about how to do that effectively than we did nine months ago.

‘Stop the spread’? You can’t anyway; but why would you try?

(And No, I am not a doctor.)
