Natural immunity seems to be a thing of the past during the time of Covid.
With big pharma controlling the mainstream media, the truth about natural immunity to Covid remains reticent.
However, a new study is putting the body’s immune system back into the conversation.
Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis came out with new research showing even a mild case of Coronavirus left people with lasting immunity!
The researchers said the antibody-producing immune cells are “quiescent, just sitting in the bone marrow and secreting antibodies.”
Such cells could last a lifetime, churning out antibodies against Covid.
Whereas the Covid vaccine likely needs a yearly mRNA booster, our God-given immune systems clearly work better than any man-made vaccine.
Even a mild case of #SARSCoV2 #coronavirus could leave people with lifelong protection against the virus, a new study @WUSTLmed suggests. The key to figuring out whether #COVID19 leads to long-lasting #antibody protection lies in the #bonemarrow. https://t.co/gGv5lXnBQE

Fox News has more on the study:
In the study, conducted by Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and published May 24 in the journal Nature, researchers took bone marrow samples from 18 out of 77 participants who were already signed up to give blood samples at three-month intervals starting about a month after initial infection. The bone marrow samples were taken between seven and eight months after initial COVID infection. Five of the 18 participants then gave second bone marrow samples four months later.
The team compared those samples with bone marrow taken from 11 people who had never been diagnosed with COVID-19.
While antibody levels in the blood of people who had previous infections did drop quickly in the first few months before mostly leveling off, some antibodies were detectable even 11 months after infection. Researchers also found antibody-producing cells specifically targeting SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, in 15 of the bone marrow samples. The cells were also found in all five of the follow-up samples given four months later.
The researchers said the cells are “quiescent, just sitting in the bone marrow and secreting antibodies.”
“Last fall, there were reports that antibodies wane quickly after infection with the virus that causes COVID-19, and mainstream media interpreted that to mean that immunity was not long-lived,” Ali Ellebedy, PhD., an associate professor of pathology and immunology of medicine and of molecular microbiology, and senior author said in a news release. “But that’s a misinterpretation of the data. It’s normal for antibody levels to go down after acute infection, but they don’t go down to zero; they plateau. Here, we found antibody-producing cells in people 11 months after first symptoms. These cells will live and produce antibodies for the rest of people’s lives. That’s strong evidence for long-lasting immunity.”
The researchers said it’s not clear if those who have more severe COVID-19 infection would have the same long-lasting protection, as too much inflammation could lead to “defective” immune responses. The team called for more research to replicate the study in people with moderate to severe infection and is currently studying whether COVID-19 vaccines induce long-lived antibody-producing cells.
It doesn’t seem logical to use an experimental vaccine for a virus with a less than 1% chance of fatality when the side effect rate may be higher!
Even the Left-leaning New York Times shared a story about the study but was cognizant not to give the immune system too much credit.
Rather, the article was pro-vaccine and focused on how the vaccine allegedly boosts natural immunity.
Immunity to the coronavirus lasts at least a year, probably longer, and improves over time especially after vaccination, according to two new studies. https://t.co/GYV1YGUKQH

But The New York Times couldn’t hide the fact that those who get the vaccine need booster shots compared to mild Covid cases:
The result may not apply to protection derived from vaccines alone, because immune memory is likely to be organized differently after immunization, compared with that following natural infection.
That means people who have not had Covid-19 and have been immunized may eventually need a booster shot, Dr. Nussenzweig said. “That’s the kind of thing that we will know very, very soon,” he said.
Interestingly, we’ve found a video circulating on Twitter that shares information about all the Covid cases in one hospital being 100% Covid vaccinated.
And that likely isn’t an isolated incident.
Natural immunity seems to be the way to go!
