“I was diagnosed with coronavirus on March 7, I had a severe dose and my antibodies had disappeared 12 weeks later. I am no longer immune to coronavirus,” Dories told Parliament.
“Many people who were donating their plasma post-coronavirus for convalescent therapy were told quite quickly, ‘We no longer need your plasma because you do not have any antibodies left,’” She added.
“There is no such thing as herd immunity” without long-term antibodies or a vaccine, she concluded.
The declaration was published on Oct. 4 by three epidemiologists from Harvard University, Oxford University, and Stanford University.
The declaration is also supported by former Conservative party leader Iain Duncan Smith, who argued that risks other than CCP virus also need to be considered.
Therefore, he said the government needs to take a more realistic approach.
“…being in control, managing it, but not expecting, as people say, we can defeat this, because I honestly don’t think we will.”
The Prime Minister’s office on Oct. 7 rejected the “focused protection” proposal, saying “it is not possible to rely on an unproven assumption” that people at lower risk would avoid transmitting the disease to those who are at a higher risk.
“Antibody positivity does not reflect the extent to which immunity has been established at a population level,” Dr. Sunetra Gupta, co-author of the Great Barrington Declaration, wrote in an email to The Epoch Times. “Our group has been closely involved in these investigations (and has had two peer reviewed papers published in this area this week) and efforts to establish how much of the population had been exposed to SARS-Cov2 has been comprised by their short duration in many individuals and the fact that some people do not make detectable antibodies.
“Importantly, these people are still immune despite having no detectable antibodies,” she wrote. “Asserting that only x [percent] of the population is immune because x [percent] have antibodies does not quite make sense in this context.”
