Natural Immunity Deniers Are the Real Anti-Science Brigade and They’re Running Your Government

How in the world could a vaccine provoke a better protection than the virus it is trying to pass itself off as to the immune system??

Common knowledge suddenly being denied out of existence 

As scientists, we have been stunned and disheartened to witness many strange scientific claims made during this pandemic, often by scientists. None is more surprising than the false assertion made in the John Snow Memorandum – and signed by current CDC Director, Rochelle Wolensky – that “there is no evidence for lasting protective immunity to SARS-CoV-2 following natural infection.”

Natural Infection Confers Protection Against Severe Disease

It is now well-established that natural immunity develops upon infection with SARS-CoV-2 in a manner analogous to other coronaviruses. While natural infection may not provide permanent infection-blocking immunity, it offers antidisease immunity against severe disease and death that is likely permanentAmong the millions that have recovered from COVID19, exceedingly few have become sick again.

  • Propagated by the media, the idea that infection does not confer effective immunity has made its way into decisions by governments, public health agencies, and private institutions, harming pandemic health policy.  The central premise underlying these regulations is that only vaccines make a person clean. For instance:

  • The state of Oregon has instituted a discriminatory vaccine passport system that provides privileges to the vaccinated but treats recovered COVID patients like second-class citizens even though natural infection confers disease protection.

  • The European Union will be open to vaccinated tourists this June, but not to recovered COVID patients.

  • The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recently amended their mask guidelines, no longer recommending masks outdoor for those vaccinated. However, those who are immune by natural infection are out of luck and must continue to wear masks.

  • Universities like Cornell and Stanford, which are supposed to be bastions of scientific knowledge, have mandated vaccines for students and faculty. Neither exempt people who are immune by dint of natural infection.

  • Even the World Health Organization (WHO) has stumbled. In the fall, they changed their definition of herd immunity to something achieved through vaccination rather than a combination of natural immunity and vaccines. Only after a public backlash did they change it back in January to reflect reality.

COVID Vaccines Should Be Used to Protect the Vulnerable

The COVID vaccines are a fantastic technology that, if used properly, can end the epidemic around the world. Among all medical inventions, vaccines have saved more lives than any other – except perhaps basic hygiene measures like proper sewage systems and clean drinking water. Vaccines themselves do not protect us; it is our immune system’s reaction to the vaccine that protects us. The beauty of vaccines is that we can activate our immune system against serious diseases without becoming seriously ill.

Natural infection typically confers better and broader protection, but this comes at a cost to those who are vulnerable to severe illness and death. For those in the vulnerable group, including the elderly and those with chronic disease, it is safer to acquire future protection against the disease via vaccination than by recovering from the disease. At the same time, it makes little sense to ignore the scientific fact that infection does confer long-lasting future protection for the millions of people who have had COVID.

In the 18th century, milkmaids were considered “fair of face, the prettiest girls in all the land.” Unlike others, they did not have the common face scars from smallpox infection. Through their close contact with cows, they were exposed to and infected by cowpox, a mild disease that generates immunity to smallpox. In 1774, a Dorset farmer named Benjamin Jesty purposely inoculated his wife and two sons with cowpox, and vaccines were born (the Latin vaccinus = “from cows”).

Though vaccines are vital tools in fighting infectious diseases – including COVID – we should be mindful of the uses to which they are put and remember natural immunity in our policymaking.  In an environment of worldwide vaccine scarcity, vaccinating those who have been sick with COVID-19 is not only unnecessary but immoral. By giving vaccines to the already immune, we are withholding life-saving vaccines for older high-risk persons who have not had the disease. There is a thousand-fold difference in the risk of mortality from COVID-19 infection between the young and the old. While most older, affluent Americans and Europeans have already been vaccinated, that is not true for those less affluent and certainly not for older people in India, Brazil, and many other countries. The denial of natural immunity has thus led to many unnecessary deaths.

Much of the impetus for vaccine passports has arisen from the false idea that universal COVID vaccination – including in young children in whom the vaccine has not been adequately tested – is necessary to end the pandemic. Given the natural history of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the vaccines are likely only to confer long-term protection against severe disease rather than all infection per se.  Any infection-blocking effects are probably short-term unless the vaccine does very much better than natural immunity, which is rare in medicine. As such, the vaccines cannot be used to achieve zero disease transmission. Instead, we should use the vaccines to protect the vulnerable against severe disease and death from COVID.

Businesses that exclude the unvaccinated are, in effect, discriminating against the working class and the poor who have already suffered through the disease. The lockdowns have protected the more affluent, “work-from-home” class while exposing those who deliver their food and provide other necessities. Since their immunity counts for nothing, many will be coerced into taking the vaccine to return to everyday life. Though the vaccine’s side effects are mostly mild, common vaccine adverse reactions may lead some workers to lose several days of income. Immunity denial is simultaneously heartless and scientifically ignorant.

Restore Trust in Public Health and Science by Acknowledging Natural Immunity

The rapid development of Covid19 vaccines is a tremendous achievement for the scientific community and the public. The vaccines have already saved countless lives. It is the one bright spot in an otherwise dim track record for the public health community, which has failed to follow basic public health principles and gutted public trust in public health. To rebuild that trust, acknowledging natural immunity is an essential first step.

It is not enough that such affirmation comes from front-line scientists. Public acknowledgment of natural immunity must come from the top: from the directors of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), and the World Health Organization (WHO). On the individual level, we need acknowledgments from leading academics and journalists – such as university presidents and scientific journal editors.

In his History of the Peloponnesian War (~400 BC), the Greek historian Thucydides wrote of a great plague that hit Athens in the middle of its war with Sparta. It killed a quarter of the inhabitants of Athens before the disease burned out (presumably because herd immunity hit). Here is the key passage from Book 51:

…more often the sick and the dying were tended by the pitying care of those who had recovered, because they knew the course of the disease and were themselves free from apprehension. For no one was ever attacked a second time, or not with a fatal result. All men congratulated them, and they themselves, in the excess of their joy at the moment, had an innocent fancy that they could not die of any other sickness.”

The ancients understood immunology better than we do. If scientific leaders do not acknowledge immunity from natural infection, public confidence in vaccines and public health institutions will further deteriorate, imposing great harm to the public’s well-being.

The zionazi jew wants every goy to be ” vaxxed” and to die,few years down the road…Novus Ordo Seclorum knocks on the JWO doors, a dual event in our Dual world, in 2033, what is 5,793 / 5,794 A.M.= Anno Magnus= Great Precessional Year! Their Skull & Bones Georgia Guidestones clearly states in its 10 judeomasonic ” commandments” to depopulate the world on ” ideal” 500 million and to keep that number,by their control of the reproductive organs of the 500 million….It was opened for the dumbed down goyim populace on March 22,1980…March 22= 322, the number of the satanic Skull & Bones order….It is the Vernal equinox day of new Anno Magnus,measured at the Great Sphinx,on March 21st in Egypt, but March 22, in the Western hemisphere!!! And notice their Skull with only upper jaw with 11 teeth and crossbones with ” fingers like” carvings of 4+5= the Ennead of 9! It makes 9/11 attacks, where this thug lodge left its signature, and presence by Bush Jr., and Skull member Rumsfeld… They used there twice 9/11 , plus 911 was done by them for Novus Ordo Seclorum in 2033!!!

“Instead, we should use the vaccines to protect the vulnerable against severe disease and death from COVID.”

This is a doctor! He knows or should know that any vaccine will knock a persons immune system down for several weeks making that person a target.

I’m a bit sick of listening to everyone yapping about the vulnerable aka old people as I am in that group. A older persons immune system is already compromised by age. Injecting them with crap vaccines will make them even more susceptible to disease for the reason I outlined above. They’re killing the elderly with this bs. Talk to the expert,,, Governor Cuomo of New York.

What the elderly need is healthy food, as much exercise as reasonable for them and to be outside in the sun and fresh air.

As I have said time and time again, COVID or SARS COV 2 does not exist. The whole thing is a con. Alberta, Canada has removed all restrictions because it has been proven in court that the virus has never been isolated to prove it’s existence. They are now treating it as a mild flu which is exactly what it is.

The only thing the medical industry and governments have accomplished is tens of thousands dead and many more to come in the future from a experimental concoction falsely called a vaccine. Add in hundreds of thousands,,, probably millions before it’s all said and done,,, of horrifying diseases and complications.

All government, media and especially the medical Nazis need to be incarcerated and tried for grossly breaking just about every part of the Nuremberg code as they were/are aware the whole thing is a scam and violating everyone’s rights for their own gain.

Threatening people with starvation,,, restricting their rights to travel, work and basically live,,, endangering them and their children for generations to come

They are the sick ones, there is no vaccination available, and only one cure.

Overdue! Can’t happen fast enough!

Thank you. But I am just a messenger. This scam was/is soooo obvious a kindergartner could see it. I am retired,,, got more time to research. But figuring out it was a scam was easy…. trying to convince others before they took that horrible injection was/is the hard part!

Sadly it appears they’re going to try to ignore the court case. The media hype will go into ‘Warp’ drive and attempt to drown out the truth while poisoning as many as they can with their safe and effective killer shot.

Armstrong has pulled the article off the page. It’s still there but you have to have the link. In his updated page he is saying the virus has been isolated/identified,,, whatever that means.

If you want the article get it while it’s there.

In his replacement articles he says “I do not see arguing over COVID existence will help. They are going to impose booster shots and then require COVID passports with renewed shots at least annually if not every 6 months.”

he also says “The bigger question is tyranny. Arguing COVID has not been identified is not going to win the day.”

The virus is the foundation for all the lies… Remove the foundation and it all falls apart.
How on earth can he say arguing over it won’t help?

Apparently he was told to shut up and remove it and he did. It is nowhere to be found.
Now he is back like everyone else, bitching about the restrictions and injections. Apparently those arguments are okay.

You can also get the article from the Globe and Mail if you want to pay for it.

Though I agree with the major premise here about natural immunity, which in healthy people including healthy elderly people who take care of proper nutrition and exercise would be 99% sufficient to not contract the virus in the first place. Other than that there is little I agree with here, his numbers on those having serious problems after vaccination are way off if not self serving, no discussion of the mRNA effect on our human natural DNA, no mention of the action of the artifically induced spike protein on the endothelial cells which cover our vascular system and the down the road implications of that especially when this pathetically ineffective vaccine wears off after only 6 months and Big Pharma goes fishing for another round of over 30 Billion in profits so far, and several other omissions. I like the intro and the painting though.

Dr. Jay Bhattacharya has indeed hit the nail on the head or raised the trillion dollar question, why is natural immunity and anathema to the mainstream media, the WHO, CDC, and governments and medical institutions throughout. For the same reason the WHO demonized HCQ with zinc treatment and now ivermectin, a cheap generic drug that has wiped out the second wave in India and Mexico: They don’t want their trillion dollar vaccine gravy train upset at any cost, least from some cheap stupid generic drug like ivermectin that is 10 times cheaper than the cheapest vaccine
