Thread Name: BS: New news on the pandemic COVID-19
Subject: RE: BS: New news on the pandemic
Today's bad news: stories from two different sources making it look very unlikely that lasting immunity happens. Instead, you can get it again within weeks or months (new infections, not persisting ones) and second time round it will be worse.

This doesn't happen with flu, and the chronic illnesses resulting from covid-19 seem likely be much more wide-ranging, common and severe than with any kind of flu.

Some countries (notably England, Brazil and the US) are going to be in serious trouble in a few months. There is no substitute for actually driving the infection rate to zero as fast as possible.
