Interesting and levelheaded podcast with Rabbi/Dr Aaron Glatt about antibodies. In middle he does vouch for the Quest test

Next plot twist. My wife got tested now:



I'm flabbergasted.

One thing that is baffeling many is how in the same family only some got it even though they were all living together in the same house. Some speculate that there are people that are less susceptible to get it - even though I do not understand how this would be. Here is some info on this topic.

Individual variation in susceptibility or exposure to SARS-CoV-2 lowers the herd immunity threshold - https://medrxiv.org/cgi/content/short/2020.04.27.20081893v1

Many people like this. We don't know yet why some people just didn't catch it.

Did he stay separate from them?

Is there a poll for people who tested + for COVID weeks-months ago, tested positive for antibodies, and then test + for COVID but have been fully recovered for weeks-months?

I've spoken to a few doctors. Bottom line is that some people will stay positive for a very long time and having antibodies doesn't mean that you turned negetive. You get antibodies in the beginning but you can continue to be positive for much longer.

Most also believe that when you're showing positive after a long time and you are feeling fine it's probably the test picking up some dead covid (my expression) and even if it is live somehow they believe that it's not contagious.
You can say what you think when you think what you say.

There have been a number of studies already on this. It's a fact.
