The end of the pandemic

Big words — but here is a possible way out, to be walked by each and everyone (as of Jan 06, 2021: 7 laboratories, 2 lab results and 1 correction)

The pandemic just doesn’t want to go away

— despite Ioannidis
Who wrote on March 17th, ‘we are making decisions without reliable data’ (and unfortunately: yes! — that has not changed to this day!), And instead of ’a-once-in-a-century pandemic […] it may also be a once-in-a-century evidence fiasco’.

As of December 9th, 2020, peak values ​​in spring (week 8–12) in the graphic are from 2018. The ‘mountain’ in summer (week 30–33) are the excess deaths from the summer heat waves. Source: https://www.destatis.de/DE/Themen/Querschnitt/Corona/Gesellschaft/bevoelkerung-sterbefaelle.html

Partial overlay (of correct scale) of the graphics ‘(* c)’ and ‘(* d)’ from the Intensive Register page. Source: https://www.intensivregister.de/#/aktuelle-lage/zeitreihen. The low values ​​of occupied [‘belegte’] and vacant [‘freie’] beds before mid-May (to the left of the second vertical line) are negligible, since the hospitals only started reporting beds at that time. The statement 75% to 25% is based on the figures from the csv files made available for download and the comparison of the reduction in beds and the increase in occupied beds on October 20. until December 01.

Corrected Bar chart showing the values ​​of cross-immunity against SARS-CoV-2 from the studies below. Values ​​given as an exact value (blue bar), as a range (blue bar with light gray-blue area) and without a % value (gray). Average value (light blue line): 51.5%. The sixth of 10 studies was about immunity through antibodies instead of t-cells and therefore has been removed.

And now?

How about a proof of your own immunity?
How would that work?

  • You’d have a document which (in accordance with the current⁷ legal situation⁸ on the measles vaccination obligation in Germany) is legally⁹ identical¹⁰ to a vaccination certificate, as it proves immunity.
    ( ⁷ ⁸ ⁹ ¹⁰ it’s 2020, nobody knows what’s coming)
  • You’d have a document which, in large, really large¹¹ numbers, should mean that politics can no longer ignore the issue of cross-immunity. And that politics could no longer reject the issue in its appearance as herd immunity as the wrong way, or as only achievable through vaccination.
    ( ¹¹ I mean really many!)

The first results

My own test result, and the (practically identical) result from my wife:

80% probability mean 80% probability.
I am not cross-immune or (in the words of the lab:) partially immune against SARS-CoV-2

The values from the two examples above are accordingly to a presentation of the IMD Laboratory: T_cell_response_to_SARS_COV_2_print.pdf

Where, how, when, how expensive?

Information about the laboratories — and the fine print

Just reading the information available from the above Laboratories [some do provide english versions] you may ask yourself questions like:

  • what’s the difference between the two?
  • what exactly is the difference between the antibody test (and the difference between the IgA, IgG and IgM-anti-bodies?) and the new test that the laboratories carry out?
