Natural Immunity, for the Win!

Don’t tell TikTok or YouTube.

Actually, DO tell them.

COVID-19 antibodies remain in the body 10 months after infection (medicalxpress.com)

That’s a lot better record than any vaccine. But, by all means, lets force people who’ve already had the disease to get vaccinated.

Despite an initial decline in antibody levels just after infection, results showed that most people (18/19 patients) maintained detectable antibody levels 10 months after they were infected.

Antibodies help to fight COVID-19 by binding to the SARS-CoV-2 virus, preventing the virus from infecting cells. These results show how long antibodies remain in the body to fight future infections.

The researchers, led by Dr Katie Doores from the School of Immunology & Microbial Sciences, also tested how antibodies that were created to fight against a specific SARS-CoV-2 variant would respond to other variants. They looked at the original SARS-CoV-2 variant, as well as the alpha, beta, and delta variants.

While antibodies from a specific SARS-CoV-2 variant were able to generate a strong response to an infection from their own variant, results showed that antibodies were less effective when fighting against different variants.

Antibodies bind to the spike protein on the SARS-CoV-2 virus, and vaccines mimic this protein to create the immune response against SARS-CoV-2.

So, they don’t protect you as well against new variants, but don’t do any worse at it than vaccines do either.

Once again, why are we forcing vaccines on everyone?
