The T-Cell Response to COVID-19 Infections and Immunity

Story Highlights Rapid decline of neutralizing antibodies following COVID-19 infection in some people have led to concerns that immunity to the SARS-CoV-2 virus Is temporary. However, several recent studies have shown a presence of virus-specific T-cells that remain, including among patients with mild or asymptomatic infections. Long-lasting immunity after recovery from COVID-19 infection may be […]

Stanford Study Suggests COVID-19 Mortality Rate Similar to Flu

A new study by researchers associated with Stanford University Medical School has concluded, based on a sample of Santa Clara County, California residents, that the number of people infected with SARS-CoV-2, is 50-to 80-fold more than the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases.1 The researchers tested a sample of 3,330 residents of the county on Apr. […]

Joseph Mercola, DO On How Antibodies Are Not a Good Measure of Immunity

One of the major arguments against vaccine-induced immunity is that it primarily stimulates the humoral immune system and not the cellular immune system. Antibodies are produced by the humoral immune system and then routinely measured to determine ‘immunity. The problem with this approach is that you can have high antibody levels and still get the […]
