Science: Having SARS-CoV-2 once confers much greater immunity than a vaccine—but vaccination remains vital
Israelis who had an infection were more protected against the Delta coronavirus variant than those who had an already highly effective COVID-19 vaccine
The natural immune protection that develops after a SARS-CoV-2 infection offers considerably more of a shield against the Delta variant of the pandemic coronavirus than two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, according to a large Israeli study that some scientists wish came with a “Don’t try this at home” label. The newly released data show people who once had a SARS-CoV-2 infection were much less likely than never-infected, vaccinated people to get Delta, develop symptoms from it, or become hospitalized with serious COVID-19.
The study demonstrates the power of the human immune system, but infectious disease experts emphasized that this vaccine and others for COVID-19 nonetheless remain highly protective against severe disease and death. And they caution that intentional infection among unvaccinated people would be extremely risky.“What we don’t want people to say is: ‘All right, I should go out and get infected, I should have an infection party,’” says Michel Nussenzweig, an immunologist at Rockefeller University who researches the immune response to SARS-CoV-2 and was not involved in the study. “Because somebody could die.”…
They just can’t stop the corporate PR, even in the science journals. It’s getting embarrassing.
Someone could definitely die if they follow standard medical advice and avoid therapies that work, especially if they go on dr. kevorkian’s favorite drug, remdesivir. I had covid about a year ago, I’m 65 years old and it was no big deal with the supplements I was taking. But then I’ve been ignoring doctors for years.
As far as covid parties, parents used to have measles and chicken pox parties years ago, before doctors and TV’s convinced people to be afraid of their own shadow. I have no doubt that a healthy person of any age, equipped with an ample supply of zinc ionophore (quercetin, ivermecting or HCQ), combined with zinc, vitamin D and C, would benefit far more from a covid party than from a clot shot.
When this lead balloon finally crashes I suspect the medical establishment will never regain its ill-gotten reputation, especially when people start questioning what they’ve been doing to children and mothers for decades.
