The story with coronavirus is mostly good news. You wouldn’t know that if you follow the mainstream media, but it really is. It turns out that children are at extremely minimal risk of infection. The United States is well past our peak for daily infections. Europe is on the road to recovery. More and more states are choosing to reopen. There’s a vaccine on track for mass production later this fall, which is one of the most impressive feats in the history of science.
With so much good news flying around, the fear mongers need a new rallying call. Thankfully, the WHO is ready and able. They sent out a tweet that was trying to stoke the flames of fears around the world, and it’s pretty gross.
Before we get into the tweet, we need to cover some basic biology. In general, we know that after you recover from a virus, you’re immune to it — at least for a while. It’s why we used to have chicken pox parties as kids. It’s also the basis for how vaccines work. The way your body fights viruses is by producing antibodies. They prevent the virus from reproducing so the rest of your immune system can catch up on truly eliminating the antigens. After the infection is over, your ability to produce antibodies stays around, and you get immunity.
Knowing this, the WHO went on Twitter to educate the world. Their announcement is that there is no evidence that people who recover from COVID-19 have any lasting immunity. These people might test positive for antibodies, but that doesn’t prevent them from getting the disease again.
Let’s talk about why this is stupid. There are no drugs right now that kill COVID-19. None. Either your body beats the disease, or the disease kills you. Those are the only possibilities at the moment. So, if a lot of people are surviving the infection, it means that their antibodies work. Antibody tests confirm that the antibodies are lingering, so the idea that there is no immunity is asinine.
If you’re not convinced, consider vaccines. A lot of companies are sinking a ton of money into vaccine research right now. If antibody immunity was impossible, then vaccines would be a waste of time. No one is going to pay for a vaccine that doesn’t actually protect them.
If you’re exceptionally skeptical, you might push back and say that you read about studies where people got re-infected in Wuhan and S. Korea. Assuming those studies are accurate (trusting China is not a smart bet right now), they saw about a dozen cases of reinfection out of tens of thousands of infections. That means that for the vast, vast majority of people, reinfection is not a risk, and that’s pretty normal for this type of virus.
Here’s the bottom line. The WHO continues to knowingly endangered hundreds of thousands of lives around the world in order to make China happy. They once again chose to parrot Chinese propaganda because they are completely in bed with them.
The WHO wants you afraid. It’s their goal, and it’s entirely political. We’ve caught the WHO lying again and again. What are we going to do about it?
