Antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 remain stable, or even increase, seven months after infection

"Rather surprisingly, we even saw an increase of IgG anti-Spike antibodies in 75% of the participants from month five onwards, without any evidence of re-exposure to the virus,

Fascinating article

He knows it cant keep evolving to become more transmissible forever. Eventually, the virus will hit a ceiling, he said.

But its not exactly clear what that is.
Would love to understand why he says that with such certainty

But that's not the only factor in transmissibility.
Unless he means like R has a limit - that limit may be 1000, but it has a limit.
Then it's just stupid

This could be a major game-changer. My only question is what happens to the dog's sense of smell if it gets COVID-19.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/sep/24/close-to-100-accuracy-airport-enlists-sniffer-dogs-to-test-for-covid-19

Will any country reopen using this technology?

https://people.com/pets/finland-to-use-coronavirus-sniffing-dogs-at-helsinki-airport/

Never heard of this taking off (can I guess that those who stood to lose money to other methods blocked it?). But now comes this:


Let's see if this will take off. My guess: it won't since it has the potential to put a huge curb on COVID-19. The political withdrawal syndrome is too strong to allow this.
