Based on

Yes, when somebody doesn't deny something, it is an indication that it's true.

It isn't conclusive evidence, and it may not apply to every case, but the fundamental assumption is sound reasoning, and its' called שתיקה כהודאה.

https://www.app.com/story/news/health/2021/02/15/lakewood-canceling-purim-festivities-over-covid-fears/4451152001/

Did BMG really cancel Purim, or did they "cancel" it for the media the same way Satmar cancelled their wedding and 21 Kislev? If the former, what suddenly changed when yeshivas and shuls and chassunos have been going full speed ahead with no restrictions for so many months?

Learning is more important than Purim?

Easier to cancel parties than a wedding someone planned, paid for and has been looking forward to for a long time

What are you getting from this thats meaningful?

Coronaviruses are a category of viruses. When the body is infected with one, it launches an immune response which includes Coronavirus antibodies. When infected with COVID-19 (NCov-2), the immune system generates such antibodies. Since the immune system has never encountered COVID-19 before, those generic-Coronavirus antibodies are ineffective against it.

I feel like Im missing something.

It proves your point. It was assumed cross immunity may play a role in Covid severity/infection, and this suggests it does not, since. there was no correlation with previous immunity.

Thanks. I didnt realize that was the previous assumption. There could be other immune factors, like levels of a specific interferon or something. This just rules out Coronavirus antibodies.
