British Study: Number of People with COVID Antibodies Tumbling, Trump’s Herd Immunity Plan Proven Impossible (like everything else he promises)

VT: The Trump-Atlas plan, herd immunity, based on non-existent science on COVID immunity, is again struck down by real science.

The new figures, US deaths at 2-6 million, will be the result.

BBC: “Levels of protective antibodies in people wane “quite rapidly” after coronavirus infection, say researchers.

Antibodies are a key part of our immune defences and stop the virus from getting inside the body’s cells.

The Imperial College London team found the number of people testing positive for antibodies has fallen by 26% between June and September.

They say immunity appears to be fading and there is a risk of catching the virus multiple times.” (BBC)

Daily Beast: Remember when, just a few weeks ago, the White House embraced the idea of “herd immunity” to resolve the coronavirus pandemic? Well, according to a major new British study, the proportion of England’s population with COVID-19 antibodies that form an immune defense is actually falling sharply, not rising, and leaving more people open to a second infection by the highly contagious virus.

The number of people testing positive for COVID-19 antibodies tumbled by 26 percent between June and September in England, an Imperial College London team found. According to BBC News, in the first round of testing, at the end of June and the beginning of July, around 60 in 1,000 people had detectable antibodies.

In September, only 44 per 1,000 people were positive. Graham Cooke, co-author of the report, said: “As a whole, these data suggest the possibility that decreasing population immunity will lead to an increased risk of reinfection as detectable antibodies decline in the population.”

  1. Seneca, So I need a medical degree to understand health and medicine?? How about reading information from many educated people that have those degrees. There is different opinions on these matters of diseases and health in general. Anyone of us can get educated in these matters. It is called reading and studying the info. You can do it too.

    • If you are going to give medical advice, show us you have a medical license. Otherwise, please, no advice from people who hide behind a screen name.

    • You need a medical license in order to give credible recommendations. Without one, you might be anyone making things up. Unless you are accountable to a licensing board for the things you say and do, you are a quack, fraud or, worse still, writing op ed.

  2. Nonsense. There is nothing novel to this disease. T-cell immunity is the main factor with viruses, not antybodies. Some people never develop anybodies but still are immune. The irony about all this is that modern science to this day, does not understand the immune system and is insanely stuck with Pasteur’s “Germ Theory of disease” which favors Big Pharma model. They refuse to understand that the whole concept could be wrong. In 2016 Dr. Stefan Lanka was offering 100,000 Euros to anyone that could prove him that “measles disease” is from a virus. The case ended up in the Supreme Court in Germany and Lanka won. No proof that measles is caused by a virus. Many scientists for some time have been saying that measles is toxemia. I believe Antoine Bechamp and his “Terrain Theory of Disease” might be the correct assesmet to diseases and health.

  3. From article dated 3/12/2020
    “The strategy of the British government in minimising the impact of Covid-19 is to allow the virus to pass through the entire population so that we acquire herd immunity, but at a much delayed speed so that those who suffer the most acute symptoms are able to receive the medical support they need, and such that the health service is not overwhelmed and crushed by the sheer number of cases it has to treat at any one time.” “British government wants UK to acquire coronavirus ‘herd immunity’, writes Robert Peston”

    • Lest we forget also, it was Britain who was the last country to be denied travel to the US, this while actively advocating “herd immunity”.
      We have long surpassed the point of ‘duty to warn” in regards to British malingering.

  4. Very interesting contradiction from Britain who advocated herd immunity and gave Trump the idea. The PR for Britain has been in high gear recently in the US, and no wonder with the series of blunders since Cambridge Analytica (now deemed in the eyes of press to have been overrated as a tool ) and Brexit. In all my years, I have not seen the levels of direct involvement in domestic US affairs, that I have recently in, US politics, direct positioning in US activism groups, and Hollywood Disney media production,.by Britain, Canada, and Australia. Even alternative and small youtubers, such as Canadien David Doel (“The Rational National”350k subs), running 100% programming on US elections. The UK is effectively slinking between our sheets while blaming it’s own enemies for interfering in our affairs, while itself overtly having massive negative impacts here.

  5. The Imperial College London team found… ??
    The Imperial College London is one of less believable, even less than Trump, which is as say too much. Are them who from 30 years ago have been announcing disaster of biblical proportions that never happened

  6. If antibodies created by the disease fade leading to a possible reinfection, how will a vaccination provide long lasting immunity?
    In this second wave what are the statistics on reinfections in the people who were infected and cured in the first wave?

  7. What kind of a bioweapon would COVID-19 be if the general population could develop herd immunity to it? They’d have to go back to the lab and come up with something better, which I’m sure they have. Whoever said that the plandemic which started last year in China was a one-shot deal, and that there aren’t new and more virulent strains of it deployed all the time, especially among the mask eschewing Trumpsters in the USA? Remember, this bioweapon was designed to kill the elderly, the infirm, and those too stupid to live.
