Anybody as sick of the TV
commercials mentioning
the virus as I am? Every
other one has to say
something about it in
a whiny/faux sympathy
voice. SHUT UP already,
we're tired of it, we just
want to move on.

This is my favorite.

Watching a rerun of Pawn Stars
and 6 of the 8 commercials was
about covid. You have to actually
turn on the TV to do this.

Is tv what people used to watch before streaming was invented?
I had a marathon auction session yesterday that went from 10Am to after 7PM. I keep the tv on on for background noise and while I'm sure there were hundreds of commercials, I can't recall a single one. If only there were a way to avoid watching things you don't like.

A pair of studies published this week is shedding light on the duration of immunity following COVID-19, showing patients lose their IgG antibodies—the virus-specific, slower-forming antibodies associated with long-term immunity—within weeks or months after recovery. With COVID-19, most people who become infected do produce antibodies, and even small amounts can still neutralize the virus in vitro, according to earlier work. These latest studies could not determine if a lack of antibodies leaves people at risk of reinfection.

One of the studies found that 10 percent of nearly 1,500 COVID-positive patients registered undetectable antibody levels within weeks of first showing symptoms, while the other of 74 patients found they typically lost their antibodies two to three months after recovering from the infection, especially among those who tested positive but were asymptomatic.

In contrast, infections caused by coronavirus cousins such as SARS and MERS result in antibodies that remain in the body for nearly a year, according to The New York Times.
