New Harvard, Yale & Stanford Data Show 4 Out of 5 Americans Have Covid ‘Natural Immunity’
"We found that among 295 unvaccinated people who previously had Covid, antibodies were present in 99% of them up to nearly two years after infection."
In the United States, the media barely mention Covid prior infections or the existence of natural immunity.
But a CDC-sponsored database in partnership with Yale, Harvard, and Stanford universities shows that the overwhelming majority of Americans have natural immunity from prior infections, Wildfire can exclusively report.
The CDC released a study last week called “COVID-19 Cases and Hospitalizations by COVID-19 Vaccination Status and Previous COVID-19 Diagnosis — California and New York, May–November 2021.” The findings were reported by Agence France-Presse.
“During America’s last surge of the coronavirus driven by the Delta variant, people who were unvaccinated but survived Covid were better protected than those who were vaccinated and not previously infected,” AFP noted about the new study.
“The finding is the latest to weigh in on a debate on the relative strengths of natural versus vaccine-acquired immunity against SARS-CoV-2, but comes this time with the imprimatur of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),” AFP added.
The U.K.'s Health Security Agency (UKHSA), issued a report that echoes much of the CDC's findings on natural immunity. It showed that those with prior infections to Covid were much less likely to test positive for Covid infections than those in the vaccinated groups.
Those with prior infections even in the pre-Alpha period were tested to have natural immunity roughly equivalent to those with vaccinated immunity acquired from three shots.
The UKHSA report also showed that nearly the entire population of Great Britain has some form of antibodies to Covid-19.
The CDC itself claims there have been 146.6 million prior infections in the United States as of September 2020.
But an exclusive new analysis based on CDC-sponsored data collected by Harvard, Yale and Stanford universities blows these past estimates away — and that is without fully including those who have a prior infection from Omicron.
