Positivity rate is 10+% (7 day moving average), but who the fuck cares. Life sucks and then you die, we're all going to get it anyway. FREEDOM! CONSTITUTION!

Daily new cases, 7 day moving average are way above the peak levels of spring and September that were so concerning back then, but hey, we've adjusted, it's just a matter of having a good attitude about these things. And not being scaredy cats who live in their mom's basement, right? We're all rugged he-men and women of the north woods, right?

We were number 1 in the entire U.S. in late November for per capita daily new infections (7 day moving average), why not again? Most of us are still here, so what's so bad about that? Maybe we should be proud of that, right?

Everything will be fine because we're getting vaccinated, right? I realize the below is talking about 28% of formerly infected people with such low antibodies that they could get reinfected again (after just 60 days), but why would vaccination work better at producing and maintaining antibody levels for more than 2 months than actually being infected? But it's "just a scientific study". FREEDOM! CONSTITUTION!

New CDC study raises concern regarding COVID-19 immunity after infection, KSTP 1/6/21

People who have recovered from COVID-19 may not have 90 days of immunity, according to a recent study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The researchers found 94% of the participants experienced a decline in antibodies by the time of the second test and 28% experienced a significant decline.

"The 28% had such a large drop in their antibody levels by 60 days, it would be highly unlikely that they would be protected from getting reinfected," explained KSTP medical expert Dr. Archelle Georgiou. "I absolutely think people should let go of the belief that you're safe in terms of being reinfected or reinfecting others just because you've already had COVID-19."
