Today’s blog is partial transcript of my podcast on vaccines AND anti-body tests. You can listen to the full episode here (https://www.spreaker.com/episode/42422404)
Transcript from 12/10/20:
We are talking an awful lot about COVID testing every day. You know what we could also be talking about? Getting your antibody test. If we found out people have had it more than we know, then you can open places it up. Say, “Yeah, they’ve had it. This restaurant’s servers, employees didn’t know it, but they had it so we can open up and we can make it safe.”
No one’s pushing really to get the antibodies test. No one’s even really giving stats about that. Why? Because if we know who has antibodies and who doesn’t and the percentages, I think we can gauge that possibly more so than the test itself. You know why? They take a blood test for that antibody test, and do you know, blood does not lie? Blood is what’s in here. It’s science. That is a science, what’s in our veins.
I read a couple of days ago, the Kansas City Chiefs had “Seven false positives.” So in essence, what is the testing doing? Is it accurate or not? So why don’t we switch from mandating vaccines, switch from stressing the COVID test itself, and start encouraging people to give that little blood to find out if you have an antibody. Because there are 50% of Americans comfortable taking this vaccine, while 50% do not want to take it.
If you say, “Hey, we’ve done all these blood samples, okay, and we know who has the antibodies and who doesn’t.” And if they don’t, just keep them safe, but if they do, of course, give a warning, “Hey, you can get it again.” But don’t be too alarmed if you’ve already had the antibodies.
At one point in Connecticut, 5% of the population had antibodies at one point. You take a whole swath, the 167,000 people, which was what they did, and you say, “Hey, look, these people, this group has antibodies.” I really believe in getting the anti-body test, because if I had it, I would want to know. Wouldn’t you? If you had it and you didn’t know, but you were asymptomatic? Go out and get your antibody test.
I’m just thinking we are banking too much on the glory of these vaccines. As great as it is that we’ve got treatments that should be utilized, should not be talked down, let’s also think of the alternatives for the 50% that don’t want. And the 50% that don’t want it, take your antibody tests now then. Let’s see if you have COVID. Look, if 50% of America has antibodies, we can reopen up a lot faster than slower, and that’s Just a fact. And as I said, these swabs, I don’t know, may not be accurate enough. But you talk about science, Governor Cuomo, you’re talking about science, Mayor de Blasio, you talk about data.
I want to know what’s in the bloodstream now. I am very curious. Because if we inject something into our bloodstream that makes us tired, lethargic, if you have allergies, you’re going to get it worse, apparently, the side effects. Then let’s see what’s in the bloodstream first before injecting this in our bloodstream. I know I’ve been clapping a lot last couple days, but I’m just very passionate about this because I do not want to see our country continue to close down simply on one set of stats anymore.
It shouldn’t be, especially when we can have data that says, “Hey, you know what? This vaccine is working, but you know what else? People have naturally gotten over this and we see that in the antibody test.” Why aren’t you promoting that more, medical community? Why is the COVID test the answer for everything? When we’re seeing negatives one day, positives another and then whatever. It seems the most reliable thing to do is just check our actual blood so that we can save the blood, sweat, and tears that go into every business and every person’s life in America. By tapping into our bloodstream either with a safe vaccine or anti-body test, we can save the life blood of America. So let’s do it.
