Not sure the immune system works that way but I guess itís possible.
Not that they got immunity from being exposed, but that exposure without infection suggests that maybe the person had prior immunity (perhaps due to having a similar virus a long time ago).
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Then again someone so thoroughly exposed might have a degree of natural immunity perhaps due to prior coronavirus family infection. My nephew was in a yeshiva where his chavrusa as well as pretty much the entire place had symptomatic covid. He was as exposed as can be but was negative and never showed antibodies. Doesnít mean heíll never catch it but it appears he is not as susceptible as the general population.
The more likely explanation is that he was not in close contact with anyone who was actively shedding the virus. Maybe he woke up late the day a super spreader came to the yeshiva for shachris, and no one else in the yeshiva was actually contagious.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Reminds me of what my son did with the English teacher and a few friends yesterday.

IKR, My point is they woke up pretty quickly, and that FYI the situation is going to be resolved.

I guess after half the world was closed off for 18 months for no reason, a month is gold.

12 cases of a brand new COVID-19 variant (B.1.640.2) which is said to be more infectious & vaccine resistant than Omicron have been discovered in France. Experts are calling it ĎIHUí.

What we know: It contains 46 mutations ó more than Omicron. It also carries the E484K mutation, which indicates more vaccine resistance. The first case is linked to travel to the African country Cameroon.

Hmm, amazing that the virus which originated in Asia and spread like wildfire through Europe and North America before sniffing Africa, somehow always produces new variants in Africa. So strange.

Read the thread, it's corrected for the delay.

Thanks, Iím reading. This thread also references other interesting and relevant content, thanks @ExGingi

ď And for the approximately three of you who have read this farĒ - ALOL

Overall, amazing coverage for a journalist.

One interesting takeaway, is that even with this less severe case, one of the biggest takeaways is the persisting relevance of reducing strain on hospitals, which the COVID-downplayers keep suggesting is something that hasnít been relevant since Spring 2020.

Another interesting take away is that the lockdowns and bans on nonessential procedures are responsible for a lot of the overwhelming.
