We knew, very early on with Diamond Princess that a very material portion of the population had pre-existing immunity to Covid-19. There were multiple instances in which a couple occupying a cabin had one person get very seriously ill and the other not only didn't so much as sneeze they never tested positive either. They were clearly immune; these were people cooped up in a 10x10 cabin unable to leave the room for weeks while sharing the same bed.
Also very early on someone very close to me had his grandfather killed by Covid-19; he went from first symptom to dead in about five days. He was old and had several existing health problems, so that a nasty virus got him is not exactly a surprise. What was a surprise is that his wife, who lived with him and still slept in the same room, never even sneezed. Again, this is wildly implausible unless an enormous percentage of people had serious resistance and perhaps even complete immunity to Covid-19 before it began.
There was some work done on this, and indeed there was evidence that 8 out of 10 people, in general, had at least some immune recognition to the virus. Sufficient to protect? Not proved. Never was, and is very hard to prove. How heterogenous that resistance is also is difficult to determine. Is some (or even most) of it genetic? Or is it from previous coronavirus viral exposure say, to OC43?
We don't have answers to those questions. But that this resistance existed in early 2020 is fact. There is no other explanation for what was seen not only on Diamond Princess but in myriad other places including nursing homes where there was no PPE and no means to provide any sort of airspace separation between people.
Yet the data, all the way to May of 2021, held.
How do we know this? Because the virus followed the exact expected pattern; in point of fact the peak for infections occurred this winter before the first needle went in the first arm from a statistical point of view. Vaccination did not, in fact, terminate the winter surge; it was already over.
So what happened this summer?
If immunity was pre-existing in March of 2020 it certainly didn't all become acquired in the previous 12 months. It likely had been acquired over years or decades, and bleeds off slowly if at all. Likewise, for Covid-19 recovered people Cleveland Clinic has documented that of those who actually had the virus, not just those claimed "positive" by PCR test, zero of their employees were re-infected.
That shouldn't surprise either. A study was done early on with Covid-19 with people who had SARS and survived; the intent was to find if they were already protected, since the two viruses are related. SARS protection post-infection was found to be durable seventeen years later, which should have been the end of the discussion until and unless proof showed up that it didn't apply here. In addition a large percentage, in fact, the majority of the population who never had SARS had at least partial immune recognition to Covid-19 -- likely sufficient to prevent a severe or fatal outcome.
The recent JAMA article makes clear several things. First, likely as many as half of those who got a positive PCR test never had Covid-19 at all. The antibody counts they documented in that study do not square with the claimed infection rate nor the low-symptom prevalence where the person in question never sees a doctor and is never tested. Back in the fall of 2020 the folly of the so-called "tests" was laid bare on the table when Elon Musk took four in sequence on the same day and got two positive and two negative results -- nothing better than a coin-toss. How many more people were labeled as "diseased" when they either had the flu, some other virus, or nothing? The data from JAMA strongly suggests the answer is "a huge percentage, likely roughly half of so-called positive tests, were in fact not from actual positive Covid-19 individuals."
The danger of telling someone they had something when they didn't is they have every reason to think they're safe when they're not and thus they are likely to put themselves at severe risk of getting hammered. That's stupid and contrary to every principle of medicine, say much less ethical behavior.
But antibody presence is dispositive. Pre-existing immunity is very, very hard to determine the presence of, since cross-reaction requires you know what you're looking for -- and we don't. We didn't do the work, beyond SARS. We didn't want to do the work because discovering what it was (1) made possible a potential easy infection that would confer actual immunity (e.g. if it's OC48 which usually causes colds, well, go get inoculated with it on purpose!) and (2) instantly deflates the fear porn, drive for vaccines and every single screaming idiot in the government, social media and on TV.
But then this summer something odd happened. Despite the presence of antibodies sufficient to suppress a virus with an R0 of nearly 6, twice that of the original strain and equal to that claimed for Delta, which I remind you is unsubstantiated and the data from the UK in fact suggests Delta is not materially more-infective than the original wild strain (it only has to be a bit more-so to out-compete, of course), we had a wild outbreak of disease anyway.
Much worse is that in Britain it is impossible for there to be widespread communicable disease even for a a virus with an R0 worse than measles:
Based on antibody testing of blood donors, 97.7% of the adult population now have antibodies to COVID-19 from either infection or vaccination compared to 18.1% that have antibodies from infection alone.
It is impossible for Britain to have any material Covid-19 infectious activity among adults given this level of prevalence unless the jabs are largely or entirely worthless, or much worse, enhance infection.
That which is impossible is, well, impossible. Like it or not since we know prior infection confers resistance on a sterilizing basis you're left with only one possibility.
It's a hypothesis that fits the facts and you can bet not one single penny of government money will go toward proving or disproving it as if it was to be proved then what do you do with all the vaccine companies and every involved government at all levels, local, state and federal, who literally slaughtered their populations with their advocacy and even in some cases attempted mandates for these jabs.
Do we have any independent medical science folks remaining, anywhere in the world, who will take this challenge on and prove it up?
But whether they do or not you can't change facts and the facts are that either the jabs destroyed existing immunity, creating susceptible people out of resistant ones, or the virus has evolved to largely-evade the protection the jabs provided. Which it is doesn't matter to the person who believed they were safe, and now learns -- especially the hard way -- that they are not.
