However, “In the first round of testing, at the end of June and the beginning of July, about 60 in 1,000 people had detectable antibodies. But in the latest set of tests, in September, only 44 per 1,000 people were positive. It suggests the number of people with antibodies fell by more than a quarter between summer and autumn”. And it gets worse.
Where does that leave the Great Barrington Declaration and its backers? If the likes of Toby Young, Dan Wootton and Julia Hartley Dooda had any scruples, and indeed any shame, they would acknowledge that they have been promoting a false prophet and say sorry. But they don’t have either, so they won’t, and the denialism will continue.
He has seen reports of the study, which was commissioned by the Government, and decided to tell his followers to Look Over There. “T-cells are a crucial part of our immune response. Reading articles this morning about antibodies, you would think they just don't exist. None of us fully understand our immune system - headlines this morning suggest otherwise! … There is more at play than antibodies”. So it’s not really happening.
There is the science. And there aren’t “two sides”. Time to get real about Covid-19.
