So the body's natural immune system function still offers the best protection for the human body!
I'm shocked I tell ya! Stunned by this news.
And if you believe that, you should be made aware there is no shock on my part. No surprise. This is exactly what I'd expect our immune system to do. Build immunity. It's how our bodies work. It's how we've adapted to our environment, YES this planet is our environment, for a very long time. And we daily intermingle with all that lives on it. We draw immune boosting components from trees, plants etc. This is our home. The earth. Which is why locking yourself in your home and breathing through a mask are two of the most unhealthiest actions you can take to "protect" yourself.
It's important to take note that I found only ten news outlets reporting on the positive news from this study. Why? Why is this positive news worthy of such limited coverage? Is it because it's not fear promotion? And implies quite implicitly no need for massive vaccination? Hence, no profits for big pharma?
“We probably will not need to vaccinate people every year as we had feared,” writes Mandavilli.
What a downer for the pharma profiteers.
How long might immunity to the coronavirus last? Years, maybe even decades, according to a new study
Eight months after infection, most people who have recovered still have enough immune cells to fend off the virus and prevent illness, the new data show. A slow rate of decline in the short term suggests, happily, that these cells may persist in the body for a very, very long time to come.
The research, published online, has not been peer-reviewed nor published in a scientific journal. But it is the most comprehensive and long-ranging study of immune memory to the coronavirus to date.
“That amount of memory would likely prevent the vast majority of people from getting hospitalized disease, severe disease, for many years,” said Shane Crotty, a virologist at the La Jolla Institute of Immunology who co-led the new study.
The findings are likely to come as a relief to experts worried that immunity to the virus might be short-lived, and that vaccines might have to be administered repeatedly to keep the pandemic under control.
And the research squares with another recent finding: that survivors of SARS, caused by another coronavirus, still carry certain important immune cells 17 years after recovering.
No vaccine required.
Immunity to the novel coronavirus may last eight months or longer, according to a new study authored by respected scientists at leading labs, which found that individuals who recovered from the coronavirus developed “robust” levels of B cells and T cells (necessary for fighting off the virus) and “these cells may persist in the body for a very, very long time.”
