Lol what?a very special test that can only be carried out in a high-security laboratory
There have been a number of studies over the years (don't ask for link, it's Sunday), that correlate routine vaccinations with overactive immune system. The live vaccines are just not quite the same as the real thing and the immune system does not respond to it the same way.
Just because the US failed utterly doesn't mean it's useless. It's also not a silver bullet - no single intervention is, or can be.The way I read this article is that it is yet another proof of the lockdown being useless as a covid strategy. Yes you can use it short term to build hospital capacity etc, but once you reopen, the virus comes back whether you like it or not. And why wouldn't it??
So either you lockdown forever, or you stop being surprised that lockdown has not helped with getting rid of the virus and start looking for other strategies.
More than 15,000 new cases of the coronavirus were announced on Sunday in Florida, marking the highest single-day total of known cases in any state since the start of the pandemic.
The U.S. outbreak is growing across 37 states. More than 60,000 new coronavirus cases were announced on Saturday, more than any day of the pandemic except Friday, when the country recorded more than 68,000 — setting a single-day record for the seventh time in 11 days.
I would take out Nigeria and Ethiopia. In fact, exclude all African countries besides SA and at a stretch Egypt. His comparison still stands without including countries with a risible amount of testing.
No country has done proper trace testing or we wouldn't have this many cases. Seroprevalence studies from Spain show around 5% of people were infected which is around 2.3 million people.

See how messed up the numbers are. Same amount of total case, yet 10 times for mortality rate for UK. One thing I know is that the UK failed at track and tracing, which explains why South Africa found more cases with 2.15 million tests vs their 11.99 million tests.
If you can on the assumption that South Africa has the most accurate data, and mortality rate. You can work off the assumption that there should be 70 cases with each death minimum.
So if you readjust the numbers for total cases, based only on the number of deaths x 70. You get a number representing reality better and a clearer indication of "population immunity." Sweden deaths should not be as low as it is now, without some form of population immunity.
In my opinion this is how many infections there should of been at minimum.
This also means the peak of infection for a specific area starts at 0.4% of the population infected.
It was expected that antibodies probably wouldn't last long. The T-cells usually do though. They have already found in Sweden that a lot more people have T-cells, but no antibodies, for this virus. That's still fine for a vaccine.
Cough cough, Singapore, South Korean, Vietnam... There are countries that have done proper test and trace and they're still struggling at times.No country has done proper trace testing or we wouldn't have this many cases. Seroprevalence studies from Spain show around 5% of people were infected which is around 2.3 million people.
I am aware that my patient represents a sample size of one, but taken together with other emerging examples, outlier stories like his are a warning sign of a potential pattern. If my patient is not, in fact, an exception, but instead proves the rule, then many people could catch Covid-19 more than once, and with unpredictable severity.
A person can catch the same common cold ( other corona virus strain) 2-3 times a year. That is well known fact.
edit: Not a big fan of VOX but this is something to keep an eye on.
It's only a bad idea if he died... Otherwise his point is 100% valid. This disease isn't all that bad, right?So you're telling me it was a bad idea to continuously play down the severity of COVID-19, attend public events, flaunt mask laws and not listen to your Public Health specialists and senior doctors?
Actually you don't catch the same cold, there are 100s of viruses out there, you're more than likely caught another one.A person can catch the same common cold ( other corona virus strain) 2-3 times a year. That is well known fact.
It's not a big stretch to think Covid-19 will behave the same way.
I am talking about medical research on common cold corona viruses, not the average persons experience. I am sure the researchers checked if it was the same virus, before making statements.Actually you don't catch the same cold, there are 100s of viruses out there, you're more than likely caught another one.
I would think if this starts happening with Covid 19, it is an indicator that the virus has mutated? There is nothing to show the virus will not mutate.I am talking about medical research on common cold corona viruses, not the average persons experience.
