Kazan: Persistence of active antibodies isn't the big factor for sustained immunity. The development of Immune Memory cells is what matters.

foo monkey: RainDawg: Maybe we should focus on adapting to new conditions rather than clinging desperately to old habits.

Adapting to new conditions is what our immune system has been doing for the last 6000 years!


Since before Noah, eh?

Kazan: I'm getting tired of the alarmist articles about active antigen persistence, which really have little or nothing to do with long term immunity against a disease, being used to fear monger.  COVID is a serious enough as it is, we don't need this shiat.


Absolutely this. The fundamental argument, when you strip away the pseudo-science, claiming limited immunity has been mentioned in the U.K. a bit back, and then quietly disappeared.

'Society' (read, government) is afraid that if there is lasting immunity people will demand 'immunity passports' (feel free to search the term, you'll find the background) which would result in an 'unfair, two-tiered society'.

So the immunity denial is not about science (science can't prove the lack of existence of something, and knows even modern vaccines aren't 100%), it's about making sure 'everyone is the same, at the lowest common denominator'.

interesting take on the meme, but what are you even trying to communicate?

B-list celebs are getting Covid-19 more than once.  Pretty fit ones at that.  There's always a chance that supplemental hormones predispose people to recurrent infection, but by now there have been hundreds of PCR,-confirmed instances of reinfection so I wouldn't call it fear mongering at all.  This is the reality we are all subject to.

I am impressed the Germans have an entire research center devoted to swabbing samples. Next thing you are gonna tell me they have a research center devoted to temperature taking and another to blood draw and another for rest and plenty of fluids.
