    Re: Good News About Covid19 Reinfection

    Great news! I knew there had to be an explanation, but it's good to see some solid studies!

    Re: Good News About Covid19 Reinfection

    What's important to note is a virus will mutate every time it spreads. When it goes from me, to you, it has already mutated in you. So, when you pass it on it's a different virus from before. The virus now in the US may be different from the virus in Korea. I've been watching lectures from Columbia University on Virology. The lecturer has made them free, and he teaches the course for free at the University because no other University delivers a complete virology course.

    Yes, a mutation is a change in a virus's code however most mutations don't really change how the virus functions. So even as Covid19 is mutating, immunologists believe that only one strain of the virus exists, which infects cells in the throat and lungs. The fact that this pattern of infection is worldwide could show that Covid19 can't alter itself too much.

    Even though everyone's experience of Covid19 is unique, it appears each person is building up their own antibodies against it thus building immunity. What isn't known yet is how long this immunity lasts. The good news is that people who were infected with the other two known Covids, Sars and Mers have gained some immunity so hopefully Covid19 will follow their pattern until a vaccine is created.

    The Covid-19 discussion thread

    In this first lecture of my 2020 Columbia University virology course, we define viruses, discuss their discovery and fundamental properties, including whether or not they are alive, and explain why they are the most awesome biological entities on Earth.
    This course will teach you more about viruses than you can ever learn from media or anywhere else. It's the only complete Virology course on the planet and the only University that teaches the complete course. The lecturer teaches them to students for free. He's employed at the University for different reason, but set up the course to teach everything there is to know about viruses.

    COVID-19 is also discussed and I think it was part of the reason he made these lectures free. The first is below. Enjoy

    "Italian MP Sara Cunial Speaks the Truth About Covid-19"

    This is a very interesting watch. MP Sara Cunial accuses Bill Gates of crimes against humanity. Can anyone tell me more about this lady? Is she credible or the Italian version of Farage?

    Ok, so her party: Five Star Movement have the following idelogies:

    Populism
    Anti-establishment
    Anti-globalization
    Direct democracy
    E-democracy
    Environmentalist
    Soft Euroscepticism

    ... so a Farage type group. I had a feeling.
