It is astonishing that universities deny natural immunity from COVID infection; with their #VaccineMandate's for the already immune. What's next? Universities claiming the earth is flat?
In Israel, vaccinated individuals had 27 times higher risk of symptomatic COVID infection compared to those with natural immunity from prior COVID disease [95%CI:13-57, adjusted for time of vaccine/disease]. No COVID deaths in either group. medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/…

That obesity is an important only risk factor for poor COVID outcomes was known early in the epidemic. Nevertheless, we adopted lockdowns which caused more obesity. The worse COVID results in turn increased demand for lockdown...
High BMI (#obesity) is associated with worse #COVID_19 outcomes - significantly higher risk of hospitalization, ventilation, and death. Why? Obesity causes inflammation, which impairs immune function, and decreases lung capacity. Source: Kompaniyets et al. 2021 @CDCMMWR

Less than 24 hours after my visit to Connecticut College, and after administrators went into DEFCON mode to prevent my entry, the benevolent Dean announces he talked to Fauci and the lockdown will be lifted immediately, after previously giving no indication this would happen 👍

Some question evolution Some question climate change Some question vaccines Some question immunity after COVID disease The last group has done enormous damage

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…

Prof. @MartyMakary is right. The denial of durable immunity after recovery from COVID by the public health community has led to many preventable deaths. Great thread!
The 'natural immunity is unreliable' theory has done a lot of damage. It's OK to have a wrong hypothesis but public health leaders have pushed their theory way too long after data became overwhelmingly clear,yet remarkably clinging to their outdated theory c-span.org/video/?512225-3/w…

Many hospitals demand that employees with prior COVID disease get vaccinated, despite already having stronger longer lasting immunity. If hospitals cannot get the medical evidence right on this one, how can we trust them with other aspects of our health?

If you are sick and "interested in receiving treatment", "please do not go to" @UFHealth, the University of Florida academic hospital.
You may have heard of monoclonal antibody treatment to help with COVID-19 infection. If you're interested in receiving treatment, please do not go to emergency rooms in Gainesville. The closest facility for no-cost monoclonal antibody treatment is available at... [1/3]
