I've been told cases in Japan and the middle east were low because those folks didn't mind wearing masks

true or untrue?

There is a strong correlation between low incidence and wide spread mask wearing, in Asian countries.

Finally got the results back from the antibody test. Negative, as expected.

I meant to post about that. You recall I had the test about 5 weeks ago, and showed very little amounts. I tested last week again, and I've got nothing.

Antibodies don't last.

Not trying to joist with you but how can you explain the fact that weve heard almost nothing on getting reinfected

maybe there is something that does last that the test doesnt pick up

just a thought
They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

That's true, but I've seen some doctors lately saying it's possible. There was that one woman from Texas who had it twice, I recall.

I was told that I could get it again. I do not want it again. I'm sure @GopherRock  doesn't want it again either.

I'm no immunologist but my read is that "immunity" isn't an all our nothing proposition. While antibodies may be short-lived your body's immune system doesn't solely consist of antibodies and will be better prepared for subsequent infections.

sure there be one or two instances but if you could catch it again there would be thousands and there arent

the US has had over 4,000,000 documented positives and only one or two have caught it twice?

Im very doubtful this would be the case without something preventing reinfection

Im not saying permanent protection only that whatever it is it stays around longer then just a few months

I do not want what my wife had. Recall that she was hardcore sick for the two weeks after we got back from Italy. So short of breath she had to sleep upright on the couch. 

I might have had a minor infection (I had plugged sinuses for 3-4 days), but that was as sick as I got this winter.

Ah, thanks for clarifying that it was her and not you. Still... no thanks on a repeat, if a repeat is truly possible.

If one percent have ever contracted this in the US, that same one percent is unlikely statistically to be infected again (aside from high risk exposures), even with zero immunity.

T-cells and cytokine explosions, very important.
