Dr. Marty Makary, professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and editor in chief at MedPage Today, thinks public health officials have it all wrong when it comes to mandates and natural immunity. Makary spoke with the Daily Wire on the “backwards’ approach.
“The data on natural immunity are now overwhelming,” said Makary. “It turns out the hypothesis that our public health leaders had that vaccinated immunity is better and stronger than natural immunity was wrong. They got it backwards. And now we’ve got data from Israel showing that natural immunity is 27 times more effective than vaccinated immunity. And that supports 15 other studies.”
Dr. Makary isn’t a fan of mandates, either.
“It’s ruining the lives of people who are getting fired,” Makary told the Daily Wire. “Nurses, who are heroes, are now getting laid off. Soldiers are getting dishonorably discharged. They’ve got immunity. It’s just not the type that our public health officials have sanctioned.”
“This is a failure of government, not a failure of science,” he emphasized.
“But how about some flexibility? How about recognizing natural immunity and allowing those who have circulating antibodies to get credit. That’s how they do it in parts of Europe, and that’s how they do it in Israel,” Makary added.
