A study in Spain is saying that only 5% of people still have antibodies after two months. It's still unclear if you can catch it twice or not. If accurate, we're entering some interesting times.

That wouldnt be good.

 

Now that we are all coming out of our shells, I have learned that I know close to 2 dozen people who got covid.  All got Plaq (being Northern NJ, it was standard first course of treatment) and almost all got better in 5-7 days.  one thing a few are saying is that they still feel odd lingering effects after a couple months.  Out of breath, weak, memory foibles.  Could just be lockdown, or ???

 

Interesting.

Is that one of our members modeling it?  There are a few here who would be perfect.

Remind us again how well Spain was prepared for this and how well they managed it?

Some studies are showing that immunity is coming from sources other than antibodies and that a large percentage of people are naturally immune based on T-cell characteristics.  So we may have a lot of variables when it comes to immunity

If that's the case with the antibodies, doesn't that NOT bode well for a vaccine being effective?  

 

So a cure for the common cold isn't around the corner?

That would mean a vaccine is off the table too. Interesting times indeed.
