Based on antibody levels? Theyre still going up 4 months later?

ETA: I read this now and Im skeptical. Onset of symptoms could have been an undiagnosed flu...

There's a 40 year old woman in Lakewood (my neighbor) that nearly died in late December, the doctors were baffled. They recently called her and told her that they're fairly confident she had Covid, because her whole situation is consistent with what they see now with Covid.

Dr Rosen is the best. Providing updates and clarity to the crown heights community.

We need more like him in other communities. He makes a good point. At whatever point many seniors reach the breaking point, and give up and exit their isolation, we NEED to make sure that the younger population does so some time earlier, to give as much herd immunity as possible before the most vulnerable and non exposed population comes out.

I have a friend in Toronto who tells me his older parents have had enough and started venturing out. Anecdotally starting to hear the same in other communities. Not a smart idea. Im all for ending the quarantines but not in this fashion. Have those in the younger population who have been careful about quarantining and are still susceptible come out first, and only then let the elderly and compromised population relax their guard.

Its very clear that there is no good exit plan from all of this unfortunately.

Thi accentuates the importance of publicly discussing plans to unwind and not giving vagaries. There are many reasons people can feel that it is safe for them to relax and some of them are legitimate. In order to prevent it from being taken to far communication of a roadmap is needed.

looking more and more like those who called for lifting the lockdown for those with antibodies and the younger population with no preexisting conditions were ahead of the curve.

Theyre reporting antibody statistics for those who had symptoms and got tested, and are assuming that is reflective of the broader population. Sounds like a mistake to me.

Yup

This suggests that the vast majority of our community below age 65 has had a meaningful interaction with the virus, with the majority likely possessing antibodies. We would hope and suspect that most in this age group have some form of protection against the virus, at least in the short term.

Lol. One doesn't need any prior knowledge to know that this statement is completely fake and follows no logical pathway.

"On the other hand, among those who did have the illness (based on symptoms), it would appear that overall greater than 70% of them developed antibodies"
Unless im reading it wrong, many did not get tested for Covid19 and only had Symptoms.
I agree that it isn't reflective of the broader population, but one could argue that those same numbers would be reflected among the asymptomatic.
