Immunity fades. Not good news for a vaccine. "Blood tests revealed that while 60% of people marshalled a “potent” antibody response at the height of their battle with the virus, only 17% retained the same potency three months later."
Reminder that getting infected with the virus (& trying to contribute to herd immunity) is not a good thing even for young people. Even if fine the first time, you’re at risk of severe lung disease if you get infected again in the years to come.
The preprint of the waning #SARSCoV2 antibody response is getting a lot of media attention today But there's data for SARSCoV-1 w/antibody response > 10 years And no data in the paper re: T-cell activation
Key London #COVID19 study: "Blood tests revealed that while 60% of people marshalled a potent antibody resp at the height of their battle w/the virus, only 17% retained the same potency 3 mos later. Antibody levels fell as much as 23-fold over the period."
This virus just keeps on... taking. “Blood tests revealed that while 60% of people marshalled a potent antibody response at the height of their battle with the virus (about three weeks in), only 17% retained the same potency three months later.”
IMMUNITY TO #COVID19 IS SHORT-LIVED AND REPEAT INFECTIONS MAY EXACERBATE LUNG ILLNESS. STAY SAFE. VACCINES ARE NOT ENOUGH. WE NEED THERAPEUTICS. “King’s College London team found steep drops in patients’ antibody levels three months after infection.”
Crikey, I hope no-one is going to read too much into that contrived fit though that data. Oh. "Immunity to Covid-19 could be lost in months, UK study suggests"
Immunity to Covid-19 could be lost in months, UK study suggests
People who have recovered from Covid-19 may lose their immunity to the disease within months, according to research suggesting the virus could reinfect people year after year, like common colds.
Immunity to Covid-19 is both variable and often temporary- sobering results from our immunology team ⁦⁩ that will make vaccines tough
Immunity to Covid-19 could be lost in months, UK study suggests | Coronavirus outbreak | The Guardian
60% of people marshalled a potent antibody response when coronavirus infected, but only 17% retained potency 3 months later. Antibody levels fell as much as 23-fold — People could become reinfected in seasonal waves, vaccines may not protect them for long
“People who have recovered from Covid-19 may lose their immunity to the disease within months, according to research suggesting the virus could reinfect people year after year, like common colds.”
Immunity to Covid-19 could be lost in months, UK study suggests
If you catch the coronavirus, what kind of immunity do you end up with? The question has dogged & puzzled scientists & physicians since the pandemic started. Now a real study suggests sober news: Immunity lasts 3 months, or less.
A new study by suggests coronavirus immunity may be short-term, as covered by . #WeareKings
This news is a gut punch: UK Study finds post infection CV-19 immunity lasts only months, akin to common cold. means no "herd immunity" tougher track for vaccines
This study could be bad news for #coronavirus vaccine and hopes of #herdimmunity
Bye bye herd immunity? ⁦
New longitudinal study suggests coronavirus could "reinfect people year after year, like common colds." "COVID certificate" talk in Kenya at this point is straight-up misinformation and needs to stop yesterday, especially from leaders.

Not a fan of this headline with this #COVID #preprint: Immunity to Covid-19 could be lost in months, UK study suggests. . Curves look a bit overfit. IgM declines, IgG doesn't show steep drop (as you might expect). All participants had some Ab response!
World: Immunity doesn’t last very long.
Immunity to Covid-19 could be lost in months, UK study suggests
"The study has implications for the development of a vaccine, and for the pursuit of “herd immunity” in the community over time." *stares into camera*
😳 It's just one study... it's just one study... Immunity to Covid-19 could be lost in months. In ~90 patients 17% with antibodies retained same potency 3 months later. Antibodies fell up to 23-fold over the period. In some cases they became undetectable.

. puts another nail in the coffin of dangerous concept of herd immunity to COVID-19
If KC's study is correct not even the 10% are safe from C19 for more than a couple of months.
Immunity to Covid-19 could be lost in months, UK study suggests
First longitudinal study suggests Immunity to Covid-19 could wane in only months. Implications for vaccines are important if this is substantiated. UK study suggests
Second study suggests #COVID19 antibodies decline significantly after 3mths. This has significant implications for pandemic recovery. It is going to be a very long road.
Immunity to Covid-19 could be lost in months, UK study suggests 🦠🔥 Yep.
Concerning: Longitudinal study of 90 #COVID19 patients in UK found levels of antibodies that can destroy the virus peaked about 3 wks after the onset of symptoms then swiftly declined. preprint from —>

There’s still questions about T cell based immunity, and how much faster you can recreate antibodies if you’ve done it before. But this is frustrating news
We really don't know all that much about this virus, and it is extraordinarily counterproductive to pretend otherwise

What price "herd immunity" if confirmed by other research?
"People who have recovered from Covid-19 may lose their immunity to the disease within months, according to research suggesting the virus could reinfect people year after year, like common colds." President Dom's herd immunity strategy looking good. :-O
Shouldn't they find out if antibodies,T-cells, both or neither yield covid-19 immunity (& for ~ how long) before they start the vaccine trials?
