The meta-analysis claims, “The level of protection against re-infection, symptomatic disease, and severe disease appears to be at least as durable, if not more so, than that provided by two-dose vaccination with the mRNA vaccines.”
- A large-scale meta-analysis drew upon 65 studies from 19 different countries to research the protection natural immunity possesses against future reinfection of SARS-CoV-2 in comparison to protections from a vaccine.
- The study, titled “Past SARS-CoV-2 infection protection against re-infection: a systematic review and meta-analysis,” found that past-infection immunity was high for the original Covid-19 strain as well as the Alpha, Beta, and Delta variants.
- Natural immunity was not as effective against the Omnicron variant.
- The chart above describes the estimated percentage of natural immunity’s effectiveness against future infection.
- Natural immunity is evidently more effective in safeguarding against future Covid-19 infection by almost 85%.
- According to The Epoch Times, the protection offered by a prior infection “still stays above 25 percent 80 weeks after infection,” while the efficacy of the Moderna vaccine “drops to single digits 40 days after vaccination.”
- The meta-analysis concludes that the level of protection from past infection by variant and over time is “at least equivalent if not greater than that provided by two-dose mRNA vaccines.”
VIRUS REBOUNDS AMONG FULLY-VACCINATED INDIVIDUALS:
- A study centered in Hong Kong suggests there is a greater virus rebound among fully-vaccinated individuals who received antiviral treatment.
- The antiviral Paxlovid is reportedly more effective in those who are not fully vaccinated for Covid-19. Fully-vaccinated individuals often experience a rebound illness ten days after receiving the drug.
- Another drug, molnupiravir, did not appear to induce virus rebound, likely due to a different process used to stop the virus.
- Fully-vaccinated California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) recently tested positive for Covid after returning from a personal trip to Mexico. This is the second time Newsom has been infected with the virus since receiving his May 2022 booster.
- While sick in May, and days after receiving his booster shot, the governor was prescribed the antiviral drug Paxlovid.
- Newsom’s press office said at the time, “Vaccinations and boosters remain the best way to protect yourself from COVID-19.”
