The authors concluded that prior Covid infection induces a “robust” and “long-lived humoral immune response,” leading some scientists to suggest that natural immunity is probably lifelong.
Israel National News previously reported that those who already had the virus at some point throughout the past year were 7 times more immune to Israel’s recent outbreak than those who have been fully vaccinated.
Israel has among the world’s highest levels of vaccination for COVID-19, with 80% of those 12 and older fully vaccinated, the vast majority with the Pfizer vaccine. Yet the country is now recording one of the world’s highest infection rates, and Americans aren’t allowed to travel there.
More than half of the cases in Israel, and over 60% of the hospitalizations for severe COVID cases are in fully vaccinated people.
Israel now says the Pfizer vaccines – which were just fully approved by the FDA – are down to only 39% efficacy and falling. In nations that vac cinated a larger percentage of their population and much quicker than the United States, they are seeing no sign of the vaccines preventing even severe illness or death.
The nation of Gibraltar, which achieved a 99% vaccine compliance rate as of June 1, is now seeing an astounding 2500 percent rise in cases, and a surge in hospitalizations and deaths.
the US has a data problem. According to a recent report from ProPublica, the CDC Only Tracks a Fraction of Breakthrough COVID-19 Infections and decided in May that they would stop comprehensively tracking breakthrough infection right before cases surged.

So what exactly are the requirements for religious exemptions, especially in Utah? Would religious beliefs against vaccination, based on personal revelation outside of the official doctrine, qualify for a religious exemption? If so, would that claim stand up in cour t?
It also has to be a religious issue, not just apprehension about the vaccine.
“What is going on in the vaccine situation is that people may have different kinds of fears about the vaccines or different kinds of information, but that doesn’t necessarily qualify something as a religious belief,”
And even beliefs that meet both criteria don’t automatically get a pass. For instance, he continued, if a modern-day Abraham were to sacrifice a modern-day Isaac in the middle of Salt Lake City, he would still face criminal charges, even if he claims God told him to do it. “A sincere religious belief does not automatically immunize you from the force of the law,” Durham continued.
At a state level, he said, there needs to be a compelling reason for overriding sincere religious be liefs that cannot reasonably be achieved another way. In the previous example, that would be preservation of life. In the case of COVID-19 vaccinations, the interest in public health and protecting people from possible illness, hospitalization and death might be strong enough to override a religious exemption.
When personal religious beliefs lead to a different stance than that of a traditional faith, it is possible to claim what’s called “conscientious objection,” Durham said, but he added that is “rare and hard to establish.”
Employers have more flexibility when determining qualification for religious exemptions. Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, employers are required to accommodate employees’ sincerely held religious beliefs unless it would cause “undue hardship” on “de minimis” or small level for the business.
“A good employer will try to accommodate religious beliefs, but they are not required to if the risk is too high,”

a credit freeze alone can’t protect you from everything. A criminal could still obtain your Social Security number or driver’s license information, steal your tax refund, take out loans in your name, or hijack other accounts.That’s why you need to take additional steps to minimize the risks from hackers and thieves
Resolving identity theft issues may mean spending a few hours on the phone with banks, the police, and government agencies. But for complex cases, the process could take months or even years.And it could prove costly because of legal fees and other expenses to clean up the fraudulent accounts
But even if you do put a freeze on your credit, there are plenty of ways criminals can come after you.
What a Freeze Doesn’t Cover
Tax Refunds. By using your Social Security number, scammers can file false income tax returns in your name and claim refunds.
Health Insurance. Identity thieves can use your information to fraudulently claim healthcare benefits from private health insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid. In some cases, they may use your insurance information for coverage, but in others, they may tell a provider to send the bill to your address, Velasquez says.
Driver’s License. If fraudsters gain access to your driver’s license number, they can create fake licenses
Cell Phone Account Fraud. This crime occurs when thieves open a phony mobile phone account in your name, then use it to access your bank account, sign up for credit cards, or sell the number for other criminals to use. Last year 18 percent of identity fraud victims had mobile phone accounts opened in their name
Child Identity Theft. Identity thieves may get hold of a child’s Social Security number and use it to apply for government benefits, open bank and credit card accounts, or rent a home. The fraud may not be discovered until the victim is older, perhaps because he or she is rejected for a loan or credit card due to damaged credit.
