VT: The Trump-Atlas plan, herd immunity, based on non-existent science on COVID immunity, is again struck down by real science.
BBC: “Levels of protective antibodies in people wane “quite rapidly” after coronavirus infection, say researchers.
The Imperial College London team found the number of people testing positive for antibodies has fallen by 26% between June and September.
"Researchers who sent out home finger-prick tests to more than 365,000 randomly selected people in England found a more than 26% decline in Covid-19 antibodies over just three months."https://t.co/tQP7aTELtn

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.
A survey of 365,000 adults in England who tested themselves for Covid-19 at home using a finger-prick test showed the proportion of people testing positive for antibodies declined by 26.5% between June 20—12 weeks after the peak of infections—and Sept. 28 https://t.co/JXQlObJGIe

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.”
So the Tory plan for Herd Immunity was flawed from the start, what a surprise. The onus is now on a vaccine.
