    We already knew this, but here's a more recent study.

    Naturally Immune People at Little Risk of Reinfection, Severe Disease From COVID-19: Study

    The studied population contracted COVID-19, the disease caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, between Feb. 28, 2020, and April 28, 2021.

    Reinfections were counted if a person tested positive at least 90 days after their first infection.

    After excluding approximately 87,500 people with a vaccination record, researchers found those with immunity from having recovered from COVID-19 had little risk of reinfection and severe cases of the disease.
    Just 1,304 reinfections were identified. That means 0.4 percent of people with natural immunity and without a vaccination record got COVID-19 a second time.

    The odds of severe disease were 0.1 percent that at primary infection, according to the study. Just four such cases were detected.

    No cases of death were recorded among those who got infected a second time.

    The study was published in the New England Journal of Medicine. It was funded by Weill Cornell Medicine–Qatar, Qatar’s Ministry of Public Health, the Hamad Medical Corporation, and Sidra Medicine

    The researchers, Laith Abu-Raddad with Weill Cornell Medicine–Qatar and Dr. Robert Berollini with Qatar’s Ministery of Public Health, previously assessed the effectiveness of natural immunity against reinfection as being 85 percent or greater.

    Yep all the rush to come to conclusions and the in a rush report conclusions that are bought and paid for to support a political narrative like “we know what the long term effects will be” “less like to get severe symptoms if you get the jab” are nothing but a hysteria.

    I’m just waiting for the truth to come out when they no longer have any other option.

    "Reinfections had 90% lower odds of resulting in hospitalization or death than primary infections. Four reinfections were severe enough to lead to acute care hospitalization. None led to hospitalization in an ICU, and none ended in death. Reinfections were rare and were generally mild, perhaps because of the primed immune system after primary infection.

    In earlier studies, we assessed the efficacy of previous natural infection as protection against reinfection with SARS-CoV-2 as being 85% or greater. Accordingly, for a person who has already had a primary infection, the risk of having a severe reinfection is only approximately 1% of the risk of a previously uninfected person having a severe primary infection. It needs to be determined whether such protection against severe disease at reinfection lasts for a longer period, analogous to the immunity that develops against other seasonal “common-cold” coronaviruses, which elicit short-term immunity against mild reinfection but longer-term immunity against more severe illness with reinfection. If this were the case with SARS-CoV-2, the virus (or at least the variants studied to date) could adopt a more benign pattern of infection when it becomes endemic."

    The APA says d Homosexuality isn’t a mental disorder

    The SC said that abortion is constitutionally a right

    At one time in this country the courts said we could own slaves

    Clinton, DNC, and the FBI said Trump was in collusion. With Russia


    Organizations considered credible say all sorts of things not credible. The source plays no role in the validity of anything.

    The Omicron Corinavirus variant and its said early evidence is believed it may suggest an increased risk for reinfection.

    Omicron......that sounds like something from Doctor Who.

    Where did this one come from?

    Oh yea....I forgot about you.

    And I have a coworker who had two rough cases (over 8 months apart, so granted probably different varients).

    No. I just forgot about you.

    I offered my coworker as an example that people can get covid more than once. She (my coworker) had tow bad cases and got the vaccine (I think because she was afraid of getting it a 3rd time).

    Sure it is and just in time to get everyone afraid again from something new just when the old was settling down. Coincidence? I think not.

    You said that you had covid and it was like a cold (NOT asymptomatic). Later you said you have the Delta varient and it is much worse.

    You also said the best immunity is having covid and then being vaccinated.

    You said "
    Looking at the handful of anti-covid-vaxers on this forum at least one has been infected with covid twice." Coworker Hugh?
    I actually said I was not sure when I had Covid the first time. The worst I had been sick in the sux months prior to the antibody testing being done was something about like a cold.
