These ‘invincibles’ have never had
COVID — and they want to know why

“Every time I do something I’m like, ‘This is it, I am going to get COVID,’” said Rachel McMullin, a 36-year-old swing dance instructor and performer who lives in Crown Heights.(Snip) almost eight million since Jan. 1, 2022 — and even fully vaccinated people reporting breakthrough cases — it seems as if almost no one has been left untouched by the Sars-Cov-2 virus. But like McMullin, there are some who have failed to contract COVID during the entire pandemic, even as Omicron spreads like wildfire.Call them the “COVID Invincibles” - and they want to know why they’re immune. Could it be dumb luck? Genetics?

I haven't got it yet, either. What really got me in the article was that these people are running around doing things that normal people would consider perverse, but the Post apparently considers normal. You can't empathize with them. They are too strange.

I am an unvaxxed public school teacher who has worked every day the school was open. My 13 year old son tested positive Tuesday, though had fever for less than 24 hours. Three days of Ivermectin and I believe the virus has cleared his body. Pre-Covid, he would be back to school today, but we all have to isolate through the weekend. So far, my husband and I are doing fine, and we are not avoiding our son, either. I bought Ivermectin from India last October, in anticipation of a Covid visit to my family. In December 2019 I had a cold, or something I just could not shake. I got treated with a steroid, antibiotic, and inhaler. It was probably a Coronavirus close enough to Covid that I have a level of natural immunity. That, and I have been rinsing my mouth with hydrogen peroxide daily for years.

I haven't caught it either. Feb 2020 on a 5 day cruise teeming with coughing and sneezing chinese. I have a house in Mexico I spend 1/2 of my time in for the past 3 years and so on. Airline flights too. I wear a sheer (think nylons) face cover that provides no protection whatsoever. How do I know it provides no protection? I had a 15 year job where I was training and testing auto painters in how to properly use positive pressure air masks - n95 masks are a joke! Paint particles are a magnitude larger than covid in size - no one would expect an n95 to keep out paint AT ALL, but to each his own. Daily, for years, I have taken a powerful multi-vitamin, zinc, c, d3 and cbd. People all around me got covid, but no one in my family has. Thankfully I have no co-morbitities.

My wife and I are both unvaxxed, retired and don't live a high-profile lifestyle like the article portrays. Stay at home, grocery shop, doctor's visits and sit outside on our patio. We are not crowd people, our closest friends both had Covid we visit each other that's our life. I had cancer in 1993 with surgeries, radiation and one year of chemotherapy since then I have never had a cold, flu or any maladies. I believe the chemo wiped everything out in my body it's the reason I don't get flu shots. I'm not invincible but I don't mess with success. I told my wife maybe it's drinkers of alcohol like we do in the evenings in our home Brandywine and vodka might be our treatment. MAGA

If you haven't been vaccinated and you don't think you've had covid, the chances are that you did get covid but didn't know it. You're probably immune. Unvaccinated people carries a very small percentage of getting a full blown case of covid. It's the vaccines that cause you to get sick. They are a spreader of covid not a cure.

I might have gotten it back in December of 2019 but I can't be sure. Ever since the Great Covid Shutdown of 2020, I've been out and about living as normal a life as I can. I have had two vaccines and one booster and still no covid. My sister has had no vaccines and she has been living a normal life too. Neither of us has had it. Both our parents never got sick. They both lived to be in their 90s, and my father had a slight case of the flu at age 90. He took tamiflu and was fine in 4 days. Some of us just don't get sick very often.

I haven't gotten the Wuhan Flu either, and I am a paramedic. I've been vaccinated and boosted (I had to if I wanted to work, and I got the jab in December 2020), and obviously have to wear a mask at work. Since I live in God Blessed Texas, I do not wear a mask anywhere else. "Perhaps they’re superheroes designed to further the human race?" If that is the case, supermodels please step to the front of the line.

A detailed study of people who have not been infected despite exposure to COVID is needed ASAP. This needs to control for Vitamin D levels, dietary suppliments taken, and dietary habits like eating red meat, poultry, and fortified dairy products that are the largest source of zinc in the American diet. Genetic analysis should also determine if there are natural mutations that correlate with these cohorts. Personally, I have been taking zinc+quercitin as well as 1000 iu of Vitamin D daily since the pandemic began. It's just insurance based on published data and doesn't cost a lot. I believe the mRNA vaccine and booster provided some benefits but I know of people who did all the right things and still got sick. Nobody cares more about your health than you do and the information is out there.

Doubt that the Lady Chihuahua and I have ever caught COVID-19. If we did, it was very mild. We both keep a low profile. If meds help, the ones we have in common are Aspirin, multi vitamin, d3, fish oil, Tylenol, and Mucinex. We also take different meds for allergies. Aspirin prevents clots. The vitamins build resistance. Doubt any of the others help prevent COVID.

Antibody levels wane after a few months and won't be detected. T-cells have a longer memory and their reaction is a better indicator. If T-cells were reactive before COVID-19 then a person may never have measurable antibodies. This is a proven fact now. It used to be called misinformation and get you banned from social media. There IS cross-immunity to other coronavirus.

One thing I have noticed at my house, is that since our two kids grew up and left the home, Our flu and cold seasons pretty much vanished. Plus both my hubby and I are old enough to remember playing outside in the yard, maybe even digging a bit in the flower beds to help Dad and Mom. Keeping kids so antiseptically clean like they do now is partly why kids are getting sick. None of the natural immunity built up like their parents and grandparents had exposure to. Just my two cents.

I haven't caught it either. Our son had the original Covid a 1 1/2 years ago, he had dinner with us every night because it took a week to get him tested, none of us caught it. He tested positive for Omicron last week, I Administered the test because I didn't think he had it, He was sneezing all over me when I we were doing the test, I didn't get it. I don't understand why, but I'm thankful I haven't got it.

I might have had Covid in March 2020. Of course it might have been a cold as I was running around and working in rainy 40 degree weather at the time. I had a nasty bout of the flu in 1980 and pneumonia in the late 90s and no colds or flu afterwards prior to the episode a couple of years ago. I do know that I won't be putting the mRNA spike protein generating poison in my system any time soon. Unlike WHO, the FDA is stalling EUA for the traditional vaccine Covaxin (fancy that) that was developed in India and which might bear looking into if it were available. Commissar Fauci is on record as stating that we have enough vaccines and don't need no stinkin' Covaxin. Of course he's probably not making any money off of the drug.

I think I had the crud in January 2019 and February 2020. Both times thought it was sinus infection. First time doc said it was a 'virus', I got Z pack and sent home. Probably second time too. Temp 102 and lots of sleep and lots of coughing. I have been out and around since this started, sometimes remember to use wipes on my hands and sometimes don't. I also take the recommended vitamins and horse de-wormer.

I’m unjabbed and have not gotten covid. I’ve been taking D3, C, zinc, quercetin and some other supplements for the last 18 months. This year I’ve had 2 random respiratory viruses, 2 sinus infections and RSV. Both covid and antibody tests were negative. Same with my husband, though we live in a free state and have been living normal lives since May of 2020. I go to a massage therapist who has been treating 30 patients a week, maskless, throughout the entire pandemic. Plus, there’s no way to “social distance” during a massage. As he says, “I just can’t seem to catch it.”

Previously exposed to something similar, most likely. The Diamond Princess cruise ship "experiment" had between 65% and 80% of the people on board not get infected. They were exposed for about two weeks in a normal closed group cruise ship environment, buffet dinners, formal dinners, dancing, casinos, bars, movie theaters, more meals together, etc, etc. without the slightest precautions because nothing was known of the virus. The fact that some very large majority of people do not get infected (or at leas not easily) has been well known since this cruise ship incident in Feb 2020. Not new information, if you have been looking hard and paying attention and searching the web. There are several technical reports published on this incident, too, not just the newspaper/TV news stories, which are questionable accuracy.

Remember the Diamond Princess cruise ship that was 7 days into a cruise when there was a covid outbfreak. Everyone dining, dancing, rubbing elbows for a week. Then they were quarantined at port for another 7 days... on a ship that had a single ventilation system. 17% tested positive for the bug. Meaning, what?, 83% were super men? It's not that bad of a bug.

Bingo! for #27. There are about six different "common colds" all lumped together because of similar symptoms. Two are adenoviruses, two are rhinoviruses and two are coronaviruses. If you had one or probably better, both of the likely have enough antibodies and other immune system memory systems to protect you from getting it. That's a LOT of people, probably well above 50%.

Hillary Clinton took a thinly veiled dig at Sens. Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin on Friday, tweeting out a Martin Luther King quote about 'the white moderate' who ends up blocking 'the flow of social progress.'It came less than 24 hours after the two holdout senators effectively killed President Biden's hopes of pushing through voting rights legislation. As if there were any doubt at what she meant, she cheekily added: 'This is a subtweet.' After combining to first weaken and then stop Biden's huge Build Back Better spending plans last year, the two centrist senators on Thursday restated their opposition

COVID-19 vaccines allow breakthrough infections. Their duration "appears to be limited." On top of that, wealthy countries caused harm by bidding up vaccine prices to hoard the "limited supply" available last year. These are not criticisms from a purported purveyor of COVID misinformation. They came from the biggest private funder of global health research. Bill Gates, whom the National Institutes of Health called a "superhero" for his eponymous foundation's lavish health spending, frowned on the results of COVID vaccine research and distribution practices in a short Twitter chat Tuesday.

CHARLESTON, W.Va.— For the first time in half a year, families on Friday are going without a monthly deposit from the child tax credit — a program that was intended to be part of President Joe Biden’s legacy but has emerged instead as a flash point over who is worthy of government support. Retiree Andy Roberts, from St. Albans, West Virginia, relied on the checks to help raise his two young grandchildren, whom he and his wife adopted because the birth parents are recovering from drug addiction.The Robertses are now out $550 a month. That money helped pay for Girl Scouts, ballet and acting lessons and kids’ shoes,

Nancy Pelosi's son was involved in five companies probed by federal agencies–but has never been charged himself, a investigation reveals. A shocking paper trail shows Paul Pelosi Jr.'s connections to a host of fraudsters, rule-breakers and convicted criminals.
