Its been a year of complete and utter madness a year of the WHO talking complete crap messing with PCR tests as diagnostics tests (they are not) and taking it from their boy BillyGoats and China. But suddenly - and at last - they seem to have started acting like and consulting with real doctors again.
Current evidence points to most individuals developing strong protective immune responses following natural infection with SARSCoV-2. However, inaccurate immunodiagnostic tests may falsely indicate infected individuals as naïve to the virus (not previously infected) or may falsely label non-infected people as positive for immune markers of recent infection.
To conclude, available tests and current knowledge do not tell us about the duration of immunity and protection against reinfection, but recent evidence suggests that natural infection may provide similar protection against symptomatic disease as vaccination, at least for the available follow up period.33 The emergence of variants of concern poses challenges and their potential to evade immunity elicited by either natural infection or by vaccination, needs to be closely monitored.
but don't get too excited as they clearly leave the door open to going full-retard again:
Plans for updating
WHO continues to monitor the situation closely for any changes that may affect the information in this Scientific brief. Should any factors change, WHO will issue a further update. Otherwise, the validity of this brief will be reviewed 3 months after the date of publication.
this completely does away with the "covid pass" they are so desperate to have us start using to travel, go to the shops, take a crap. In-fact the pass was 100% the desired outcome of this charade. Its never been about health, it's alway been about control.
Sweden says no! piss off.
which leads to:
The Swedish Public Health Agency has developed national criteria for assessing freedom from infection in covid-19.
The PCR technology used in tests to detect viruses cannot distinguish between viruses capable of infecting cells and viruses that have been neutralized by the immune system and therefore these tests cannot be used to determine whether someone is contagious or not. RNA from viruses can often be detected for weeks (sometimes months) after the illness but does not mean that you are still contagious. There are also several scientific studies that suggest that the contagion of covid-19 is greatest at the beginning of the disease period.
The recommended criteria for assessing freedom from infection are therefore based on stable clinical improvement with freedom from fever for at least two days and that at least seven days have passed since symptoms began. For those who have had more pronounced symptoms, at least 14 days after the illness and for the very sickest, individual assessment by the treating doctor.
