Well there is that. But it seems very convenient. Like the studies that show masks work, that came out just in time to combat the charts showing that some masked and unmasked populations seemed to be affected similarly. And then more complete papers came out and data was finalized for charts that showed masks, if they help, is negligible for the illness and pretty bad for society.Well, just this morning the following article was published...
Antibody levels induced by mRNA COVID-19 vaccines are much higher than those induced by natural infection and confer cross-reactivity that could be effective against new variants, a new study from the University of California, Irvine, found.
It seems that the vaccine is stronger in some ways and natural immunity is stronger in others. I haven't found the other article yet. I'll keep looking but am out of time for this morning!
Same with asymptomatic spread - "I have no symptoms"... "It doesn't matter you GRANDMA MURDERER, this timely study proves this time it's different!". And then the data came in that showed this illness spread pretty much like any other that didn't have asymptomatic spread which left questions about how the paper was so sure.
So if there is anything this pandemic settled, was that I can't trust a paper without other supporting independent evidence from a different vector. So often convenient papers about masks, or social distancing, or lockdowns actually didn't say what was reported about them. And that just makes things worse.
All that being said, when you find that other paper it will get more complicated quickly. I've been looking for a paper that says natural immunity is better than a vaccine, and I can't find anything related to COVID, so I'm hoping you can find it.
