NEW STUDY: COVID WAS ALREADY HERE

A new study is raising serious questions about the #Covid19 timeline. Antibodies of the virus in asymptomatic participants may go back even further than we initially thought. Find out how far back, and why this may change everything we think we know about the Coronavirus.

Unexpected detection of SARS-CoV-2 antibodies in the prepandemic period in Italy

First Published November 11, 2020 Research Article Find in PubMed

There are no robust data on the real onset of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection and spread in the prepandemic period worldwide. We investigated the presence of SARS-CoV-2 receptor-binding domain (RBD)–specific antibodies in blood samples of 959 asymptomatic individuals enrolled in a prospective lung cancer screening trial between September 2019 and March 2020 to track the date of onset, frequency, and temporal and geographic variations across the Italian regions. SARS-CoV-2 RBD-specific antibodies were detected in 111 of 959 (11.6%) individuals, starting from September 2019 (14%), with a cluster of positive cases (>30%) in the second week of February 2020 and the highest number (53.2%) in Lombardy.

This study shows an unexpected very early circulation of SARS-CoV-2 among asymptomatic individuals in Italy several months before the first patient was identified, and clarifies the onset and spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Finding SARS-CoV-2 antibodies in asymptomatic people before the COVID-19 outbreak in Italy may reshape the history of pandemic.

**Comment**

If 11% had COVID-19 antibodies as far back as September 2019, we know it was here before then. We should also be testing blood banks in the U.S. so the public understands this.  This should change everything.  

But the mainstream media is still only reporting fear and fake numbers.

Food for thought:  Madison, Wisconsin is home to research facilities where researchers from all over the globe, travel all over the world.  Students and researchers from other countries are in and out, and in again.  How likely is it that COVID was here much sooner than we are being told as people were freely moving about?  I suspect highly likely and might explain the strange virus my entire family experienced that had us flat on our backs in January – way before any mask mandates or lockdowns.

I posted on this before, but please read:  https://www.salon.com/2020/04/24/did-this-virus-come-from-a-lab-maybe-not–but-it-exposes-the-threat-of-a-biowarfare-arms-race/   Excerpt

In that same year, 2012, a similar study by Yoshihiro Kawaoka of the University of Wisconsin was published in Nature:

Highly pathogenic avian H5N1 influenza A viruses occasionally infect humans, but currently do not transmit efficiently among humans. … Here we assess the molecular changes … that would allow a virus … to be transmissible among mammals. We identified a … virus … with four mutations and the remaining seven gene segments from a 2009 pandemic H1N1 virus — that was capable of droplet transmission in a ferret model. 

They’ve been doing viral research in Madison forever.  While Madison is home to a BSL-3 facility, there are plenty of BSL-4 facilities in the U.S. working on viruses and other toxic agents.
 
According to CDC and WHO guidelines, 
“Biosafety Level 3 is applicable to laboratories where work with indigenous or exotic agents may cause serious disease because of exposure by inhalation route. Laboratory personnel require specific training for handling such agents, and are supervised by competent scientists who are experienced in working with these agents.” 
 
My point is that there was plenty of opportunity for many, many people in the U.S. to be exposed to COVID-19 way before the first outbreak in Wuhan in November, 2019.  Historically, people are weaker and more susceptible to flu-like illnesses in the winter so we probably didn’t visually see much until November, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t circulating in the population.

GETTING COVID PROTECTS YOU FOR YEARS

Recent data from scientists at the Center for Infectious Disease and Vaccine Research suggests those who have had COVID-19 may be immune for years. Del & Jeffery Jaxen breakdown the science and show why herd immunity may be an effective tool to end the pandemic.

 

These findings should alleviate fears and end draconian measures.

lymphocytes from 20–50% of unexposed donors display significant reactivity to SARS-CoV-2 antigen peptide pools1,2,3,4.

In conclusion, it is now established that SARS-CoV-2 pre-existing immune reactivity exists to some degree in the general population.

https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2020/07/10/coronavirus-why-everyone-was-wrong/  Excerpt:

  1. Firstly, it was wrong to claim that this virus was novel.
  2. Secondly, It was even more wrong to claim that the population would not already have some immunity against this virus.
  3. Thirdly, it was the crowning of stupidity to claim that someone could have Covid-19 without any symptoms at all or even to pass the disease along without showing any symptoms whatsoever.
