There’s been a lot to be frustrated about regarding how the government has handled the COVID-19 pandemic, but in my view, there’s been nothing more asinine than the inability to acknowledge that natural immunity exists.

As I wrote last week, Dr. Anthony Fauci played dumb when pressed on the matter, claiming that he didn’t know whether natural immunity offered protection. Yet, numerous studies and lots of real-world data have shown that natural immunity not only provides lasting protection but provides better protection than just those who have been vaccinated without previous infection.

Yet, when Joe Biden dropped his vaccine mandate announcement last week, nowhere in his speech did he offer an exemption for those that had already had COVID — despite the overwhelming evidence that they are protected. The president essentially signaled that this mandate was not about science but about pushing political division, likely to distract from his failures in Afghanistan.

None of this was lost on Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, and as per our usual arrangement, he’s a step ahead of other GOP politicians in making the case for natural immunity.

“These mandates, this is not about science — because if it was about science, you would recognize the infection conferred immunity. Israel did a study. They said it was much, much more protective than the Pfizer vaccine. Cleveland clinic did a study, same thing. Every single credible study always shows that it [natural immunity] provides good protection. And so that’s just the reality.

So I don’t support mandates at all, but if you’re doing mandate based off this, if you were really following science, you would acknowledge this natural immunity. And instead they ignore it.

And for somebody who already has protection to take a medical treatment.. it’s really about using government power control
