Can we get a quick lesson on the difference between flaunting and flouting, please?

My first Seder Chavrusa with confirmed prior antibodies (had COVID last March) just tested positive. Second Seder chavrusa is feeling ill with prior antibodies as well.. I am consistently testing negative BH (more than 10 days after my second dose).

Both of them have attended Purim parties and Simchos in the last week.

When did they last test positive for antibodies?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Second Seder chavrusa had a number below the threshold this week (12.2)- I donít know what test but he said the minimum qualifying number for the test he took is 15. Waiting on PCR results.

First Seder chavrusa tested negative for antibodies a month or two ago.

So... Based on anecdotal evidence it definitely seems like reinfections are becoming more common.
Is it
1. Waning immunity (the original projections of a year were relatively accurate)?
2. New strains?
3. Combination of the two
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

....and thatís why I think I was correct when I posted way back that the vaccine will probably become a yearly shot. Too lazy to find it now.

Interesting, the OCHD numbers are not showing any significant spike in positives in Lakewood.
IN fact, 7 day average is the lowest its been since mid December.
Google Sheet with Lakewood Covid numbers in profile for those interested.

I think it takes at least 2-3 days to develop symptoms, another 2-3 days for the symptoms to become concerning enough to get tested, and another 2-3 days for the tests to complete and get reported. Based on that it should be about 7-9 days to start seeing the beginning of a spike.

And anecdotally speaking, there's definitely a spike.

First community alert went out about positive cases post Purim. The people were in and out of a bunch of houses without masks over Friday and Shabbos.
And now a baal koreh tested positive  :'(

Very significant uptick in my community. This is without a community party.
Failing at maintaining Lurker status.

Where was this author for the past year? Definitely not around DDF, because he sounds like he was born yesterday in terms of his understanding of Covid.
