In the United States, the media barely mentions a previous Covid infection or the existence of natural immunity.
But funded by CDC database Partnerships with Yale, Harvard and Stanford universities show that the majority of Americans have natural immunity from previous infections, Becker News can exclusively report.
The covidestim database supported by a partnership agreement with the CDC and the State Council and Territory Epidemiologists.
Becker News’ analysis drawing of a state-by-state breakdown of past infections data can be seen in the original image below:
The majority of US states have experienced between 70% and 94% infections. Only Hawaii has data on previous infections falling below 50%. The average former infection rate for all US states is a staggering 78%.
CDC has released a research last week was called “COVID-19 Cases and Hospitalizations by COVID-19 Immunization Status and Prior COVID-19 Diagnosis – California and New York, May – November 2021.” The findings were report by Agence France-Presse.
“In the most recent US spike in coronavirus driven by a Delta variant, those who were unvaccinated but survived Covid were better protected than those who were vaccinated and were not previously infected,” AFP notes. new research ideas.
“This finding is the latest to weigh in on the debate about the relative strength of natural immunity versus a vaccine against SARS-CoV-2, but this time involved the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), ”AFP added.
The UK Health Security Authority (UKHSA), has issued report that echoes much of the CDC’s findings on natural immunity. It showed that people who had been infected with Covid were less likely to test positive for a Covid infection than those in the vaccinated group.
People with previous infections even in the pre-Alpha stage have been tested for natural immunity roughly equivalent to those with vaccinated immunity obtained from three shots.
The UKHSA report also indicates that nearly the entire UK population has some form of antibodies to Covid-19.
The CDC itself claims that there are 146.6 million previous infections in the United States as of September 2020. Based on its calculations and the current 72.9 million reported “cases,” this would put previous infections and natural immunity at approx. 250 million to 280 million people (CDC counts reinfection cases, especially among unvaccinated Americans).
Data recently collected by Imperial College London’s REACT program shows the vast majority of Britons say they have overcome a previous Covid infection.
“Among those who reported whether they had a history of COVID-19 or not, nearly two-thirds (64.6%) of infections were in people who reported previously confirmed COVID-19,” said Imperial College. London note. “However, these results are based on self-reported data, and it is therefore uncertain what proportion of these are reinfection or recent infections selected due to the sensitivity of the PCR test.”
African Health Research Institute in December publish a preliminary paper that suggests that people with previous Omicron infections have developed a natural immunity to Delta and related variants. Lead author of the pre-print study submitted for publication, Alex Sigal, led a team of more than 30 researchers who revealed promising results.
“An increase in neutralizing immunity against Omicron — that’s the virus these people were infected with,” Sigal notes. “However, we also found that similar people – especially those who were vaccinated – developed enhanced immunity to the Delta variant. If, in the current South African experience, Omicron is less pathogenic, this will help push Delta out, as it will reduce the chance that someone infected with Omicron will become reinfected with Delta. “
A study on natural immunity was published in European Journal of Immunologyy at the end of December. Research has shown that natural immunity is not only effective but is superior to vaccination because it lasts longer.
The results of the study showed that the majority of subjects were naturally immune from a previous infection, regardless of whether the case was ‘severe’ or ‘mild.’ The researchers also sought to assess whether natural immunity to certain variants of interest could protect against future variants.
“Previous infection with SARS-CoV-2 has been shown to be effectivetive immunity and protection against reinfection in most individualsuals,” the study said.
“Most subjects develop antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 after infection,” the study added. “To estimate duration of immunity caused by SARS-CoV-2, it is important to understand how Antibodies persist long after infection in humans... We find that NAb [natural antibodies] against WT . virus [B-lineage variants] persists in 89% and S-IgG in 97% of subjects for at least 13 months after infection. “
ONE research in natural immunology showed that children have an even stronger natural immune response than adults.
“SARS-CoV-2 infection is generally mild or asymptomatic in children, but the biological basis for this finding is unclear,” the study’s authors stated in the abstract. “Here we compare antibodies and cellular immunity in children (ages 3–11 years) and adults. Antibody responses against the pediatric highly mutated protein and seroconversion promoted responses against seasonal Beta-coronaviruses through S2 domain cross-recognition. Neutralization of viral variants was comparable between children and adults. “
Spike-specific T-cell responses were more than doubled in children and were also detected in many seronegative children, suggesting pre-existing cross-reactivity to the coronavirus, the study said. seasonal”. “It is important that children retain antibody and cellular responses six months after infection, while a relative decline occurs in adults. Spike-specific responses were also broadly stable over 12 months. “
“As a result, children generate robust, cross-reactive, and sustained immune responses to SARS-CoV-2 with focal specificity for the mutant protein,” the study notes. “These findings provide insight into the relative clinical protection that occurs in most children and may help guide the design of immunization regimens for children.”
Dr. Marty Makary, professor at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, recently author of a powerful paper on “the high cost of disparaging natural immunity to Covid.”
Dr Makary writes: “Public health officials have ruined many lives by insisting that workers with a natural immunity to Covid-19 will be fired if they are not vaccinated. full. “But after two years of data accumulation, the superiority of natural immunity over immunization is clear. By laying off employees with natural immunity, employers have eliminated those at least capable of infecting others. It is time to reinstate those employees with an apology.”
“For much of last year, many of us called on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to release data on reinfection rates, but the agency refused,” he added. “Finally last week, the CDC released data from New York and California, demonstrated natural immunity to be 2.8 times more effective in preventing hospitalization and 3.3 to 4.7 times more effective in preventing Covid infections than vaccination. . ”
“However, the CDC rotated the report to fit its story, barring the conclusion that ‘vaccination is still the safest strategy,’” he continued. “This conclusion is based on the conclusion that hybrid immunity – a combination of previous infection and vaccination – is associated with a slightly lower risk of testing positive for Covid. But those with hybrid immunity had similarly low hospitalizations (3 in 10,000) compared with those with only natural immunity. In other words, vaccinating people who have had Covid does not significantly reduce the risk of hospitalization.”
“Similarly, the National Institutes of Health has repeatedly refuted natural immunity by arguing that its duration is indeterminate – then failing to conduct studies to answer that question. ask,” Dr. Makary noted. “Because the NIH was inactive, my Johns Hopkins colleagues and I conducted the study.”
“We found that of the 295 previously unvaccinated people who had contracted Covid, antibodies were present in 99 per cent of them until almost two years after infection,” he said. “We also found that innate immunity developed from earlier variants reduces the risk of infection with Omicron variants. Meanwhile, the effectiveness of the two-dose Moderna vaccine against infections (not severe illness) dropped to 61 percent for Delta and 16 percent for Omicron after six months, according to a recent study by Kaiser Southern California. . In general, Pfizer’s Covid vaccine is less effective than Moderna’s.”
“The CDC and our own research confirms more than 100 other studies on innate immunity that have found: The immune system works,” he concludes. “The the largest of these studiesfrom Israel, found that natural immunity is 27 times more effective than vaccination immunity in preventing symptomatic disease”.
It is clear that the mass media’s attempt to lower natural immunity from previous Covid infections is a deliberate strategy to promote a universal vaccination program at all costs. One has to conclude from historical levels of intellectual dishonesty that this agenda has less to do with American health than it has to do with politics.
