The research impresses Nussenzweig and other scientists who have reviewed a preprint of the results, posted yesterday on medRxiv. “It’s a textbook example of how natural immunity is really better than vaccination,” says Charlotte Thålin, a physician and immunology researcher at Danderyd Hospital and the Karolinska Institute who studies the immune responses to SARS-CoV-2. “To my knowledge, it’s the first time [this] has really been shown in the context of COVID-19.”
The natural immune protection that develops after a SARS-CoV-2 infection offers considerably more of a shield against the Delta variant of the pandemic coronavirus than two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, according to a large Israeli study that some scientists wish came with a “Don’t try this at home” label. The newly released data show people who once had a SARS-CoV-2 infection were much less likely than vaccinated people to get Delta, develop symptoms from it, or become hospitalized with serious COVID-19.
The study was described by Bloomberg as "the largest real-world analysis comparing natural immunity - gained from an earlier infection - to the protection provided by one of the most potent vaccines currently in use." A few days ago, we noted how remarkable it was that the mainstream press was finally giving voice to scientists to criticize President Biden's push to start doling out booster jabs. Well, this study further questions the credibility of relying on vaccines, given that the study showed that the vaccinated were ultimately 13x as likely to be infected as those who were infected previously, and 27x more likely to be symptomatic.
This is why I do not understand why antibody tests are not accepted as "proof" of safety that everyone now seems to want (the BS vaccination card).

The CDC has acknowledged the superiority of natural immunity over vaccines on several occasions. It's good to see Israel is officially coming to the same conclusion.
Best scenario would be for the majority of Americans to contract Covid-19 and quickly recover.
They can then ignore all the "noise" about vaccines and boosters every 5-to-8 months.

The news media has done a far great job lying about covid and fear mongering a lot more then they ever did with H1N1. They are selling fear and fear is what is causing people to get vaxed or want their youth to be vaxed because they believe the experts told them it would be safe and effective.

Your doctor told you that?
ex-doctor "jab it in and get over it".
Its almost like they dont care about the possible side effects.
