Paper suggests 1/3 kids had alpha. Then a lot more got delta. Think of all the quarantines and school closures that could be avoided if we counted these kids as immune. We are not doing anyone any favors by continuing to ignore natural immunity. journalofinfection.com/artic…

Clearly we are ignoring it bc those in charge view the mast majority as idiots unable to comprehend the nuances of multiple scenarios & they’ve decided that it would muddy the “you must get vaccinated” waters. They want us to believe the shot is the only way out.

Prob is, antibodies gone from kids after months. We can't tell how many had.

You can do a test for T-Cell immunity. I believe it’s called T-Detect. They were FDA approved earlier this year.

there is no delta test, no kids were tested for delta. they run genome image sequencers on a sampling from the community maybe and come up with statistics on how many might be this version or that.... maybe. but no single individual is getting a "delta" test.

Sorry if tweet confusing. Study conducted during Dec and March, when alpha dominant. So most infections by that point were from alpha and predecessors. Assuming a LOT of kids got delta after this, so likely a lot more than 1/3 with nat imm. The exact variant doesn't matter.

Posted, today, from BMJ on natural immunity. Dr. Whelan, Pediatric Rheumatologist from UCLA is quoted, with what may be happening, with getting the Abs sky high, post infection, via vax.
Must read -- BMJ Feature "Vaccinating people who have had covid-19: why doesn’t natural immunity count in the US?" Dr. Whelan, Pediatric Rheumatologist, at UCLA, speaks to what might be happening when we get the Abs sky high via vax. bmj.com/content/374/bmj.n210…

Many Parents don’t even want to know if their kids have antibodies, because they’re so conditioned to fear the virus. It’s so sad.
