Is Covid-19 immunity a fallacy?

May 18, 2020

Several news outlets, including Forbes,  OAN and some local ABC affiliates are reporting that sailors who were previously found to have the virus while aboard the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt are reportedly testing positive for active virus a second time.

This calls into question the likelihood of any immunity being conferred by having the virus, as well as the efficacy of injecting patients with plasma containing antibodies.

To be sure, as the Forbes article mentions, the tests could be inaccurate, but with some states looking into giving out “immunity cards” to allow people to go back to work, it is an anomaly that should be investigated.

After all, having the flu does not confer immunity, and as Covid 19 is also a respiratory virus, it is within the realm of possibility that it too can cause redundant infections.

That could also affect any vaccine that is eventually marketed. We all know people who get the flu vaccine every year, and still get one of the many strains of the flu.

Since the so-called health “experts” have gone from saying Covid 19 does not mutate easily to exactly the opposite viewpoint, it is possible that many people will not even take a vaccine when it is available, just as they do now with the flu vaccine (this year’s flu vaccine is said to be only 37 to 45% effective)

In short, we may have to learn to live with Covid 19 just as we do the flu, making these ridiculous shut-downs unnecessary and ineffective.

It also makes finding effective treatments for the most dangerous complications of the virus even more important than it is now.
