    I can understand why this is the takeaway from the article, but frankly the headline is verging on misleading. This is one of those things where it's important to be very specific. We can say "antibody counts drop off after three months". That's about it. That doesn't mean we can say "your immunity disappears after 3 months", not least because as with vaccines the resulting immunity exists on a spectrum of complete sterility, to asymptomatic spreader to as-good-as complete infection. Immune response is hugely more complex than just your antibody count - you should expect to see a lot more discussion of this in the press as the various vaccine approaches mature.

    fair do, i never claimed any degree of expertise in the subject matter but that IS the takeaway the article provides beyond the headline itself.

    thanks for clearing that up.

    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    I’ll try to find it again, but a research study of sars patients showed they still had t-cell immunitet after 17 years, and the view is that sars and COVID are (closely?) related.

    Then again it might count for fuck all.

    Was that consistent across different demographics?

    I've heard anywhere from 3 months to lifetime immunity so we'll see I guess.

    May every celebrity who blamed their child's autism on vaccines burn in hell, and every tinfoil hat wearing basement dweller who has sincerely combined in their mind 5G, chemtrails and corona. And Zukerbot.
    We had some polls here in Serbia couple of days back, 40 something % of people would not take any vaccines for COVID-19 even if they were available.

    Considering the rush everyone is in to develop one, just try not to be one of the first to take it.

    Read the comments criticizing that report here. Seems its a bit loose with its conclusions

    Also, not yet peer reviewed

    Atheistic cursing is not so ... expressive ... as traditional one is. Unless I go full Slav and than its just shouting obscenities at full volume, and untranslatable to English.

    The number of new cases feels like its gone down alot in sweden the past few weeks. Even though alot of people crawl out of their homes when the sun is out.
    People are more awarr of the risks although im not sure what the crazy people traveling abroad are hoping for. Some snowflake family was upset they had to wear facemasks and gloves when getting hotel breakfast and that they had less itens to pick from.. wtf some people.
