Liberals want to paint a more dire picture of the Covid-19 pandemic in order to promote hysteria and justify authoritarian measures such as lockdowns and vaccine passports. This week, CNN reported a death from the Omicron variant of Covid-19 in Texas even though epidemiologists there were forced to admit that was not necessarily the cause of death. The British Public Health Minister was forced to admit that only one death had occured in the United Kingdom as a result of the Omicron variant. As the left refuses to abandon hysterical narratives on Covid-19, new scientific research paints a more optimistic picture of the future.
Researchers at the Washington University School of Medicine have confirmed that Covid-19 immunity lasts years after initial infection, and may even last a lifetime. The Epoch Times Reports–
“Overall, our data provide strong evidence that SARS-CoV-2 infection in humans robustly establishes the two arms of humoral immune memory: long-lived BMPCs and memory B cells,” the researchers noted. This is perhaps the best available evidence of long-lasting immunity, Radbruch and Chang explained, because this immunological memory is a distinct part of the immune system that’s essential to long-term protection, beyond the initial immune response to the virus”
This research is consistent with past research done on SARS-CoV, a virus that is very similar to SARS-CoV-2, which found that some level of immunity lasted up to 17 years after initial infection due to neutralizing antibodies.
“These [BMPC] cells are not dividing. They are quiescent, just sitting in the bone marrow and secreting antibodies. They have been doing that ever since the infection resolved, and they will continue doing that indefinitely.”
