Natural immunity Pass: NIP Covid in the Butt Post publication note - I published this about 6 hours ago and got some expected, legitimate critical comments against the idea of any pass. I welcome alternative strategies. I think there are reasons to recognize people with natural immunity. Perhaps it can be like a driver’s license which discriminates between people who can be behind the wheel and those who can’t.
I appreciate the negative and positive feedback and take it seriously. It is a dilemmas people with natural immunity can be helpful. I will rethink.
No passes for health.....if this made sense, why not include the FLU too...there is a reason this is a HORRIBLE IDEA....how about for AIDS....why no passports then? NEVER NEVER = yellow stars
I don't want any passes.
Even the passport system was only supposed to be for world war 1, then they used the Spanish 'flu' to extend it indefinitely.
Anyway, how will they verify this immunity? One day they can claim you don't have it anymore.
I ultimately agree with you. However, making people prove their status only buys into the governments’ plans to get everybody into some sort of system where they can be surveyed, controlled, and manipulated.
It was official public health (stupid) statements about natural immunity that started me down the skeptical road.
However, aren't there quite a lot of reports that people are getting omicron who previously recovered from earlier variants?
Thank you for your article, but I have to admit that the title made me cringe. The proper phrase is to nip in the bud, not the butt. I’m sorry, but your daughter misheard and misused the phrase. It comes from gardening. If you nip a bud of a plant, you stop it from blooming. If you bite someone in the rear end, it is just rude. Enough people think we don’t know anything about science. Let’s not make them think we don’t know about the English language, either.
This article feels good, but there are two major problems with it. First, the pandemic has never been about health. The vaccines serve some hidden agenda which is clearly not public health. This is why natural immunity is treated solely as an obstacle blocking universal vaccination.
Making this doubly sad, what you wrote had been true, but only up through the Delta variant. I've read a series of posts making it clear that Omicron has escaped not only vaccine immunity, but also natural immunity. e.g.: https://doi.org/10.1101/2021.11.11.21266068
Thanks. I will "brief" my pen pal the NSW Australia Health Minister on your article.
