Q&A #18 : What would be your prediction for those who are both unvaccinated against COVID-19 and never previously infected?
What would be your prediction for those who are both unvaccinated against COVID-19 and never previously infected? Let's say those of working age(20 - 55) in fairly good health.
Should they be worried about Avian Flu and Monkeypox, since they have not experienced an infection by SARS-CoV-2?
Are they at risk for serious illness from these more infectious (and future more virulent) SARS-CoV-2 mutants?
It would be quite unbelievable that they didn’t get exposed to SC-2 given the high infectiousness of previously and currently circulating variants. Ideally, they should have their Abs tested (anti-S would be sufficient since they’re not vaccinated). They can also have their Abs tested against Flu. If all this is negative (which would point to poor activation of natural immunity), they can just take one shot of a live attenuated measles or mumps or rubella or varicella vaccine (or all together in one shot) to boost their innate immune response. (However, they should only do so if they got MMR(V)-vaccinated in the past. The better their innate immune status, the lower the likelihood they are going to catch severe disease from these viruses. But anyhow, for a person in good health, it is highly unlikely to develop severe disease from Monkeypox (as it is - for now(!) - not highly infectious) or from Avian Flu as they must at least have had contact with Flu viruses in the past and hence, have some ‘Flu-trained’ innate immunity.)
Unvaccinated can now largely forget about contracting severe C-19 disease as the next big mutation will most likely make the unvaccinated resistant to the virus. However, if they have not yet been infected at all by any of these highly infectious variants, they could still contract C-19 disease (before that new variant emerges) and become seriously ill (but not ‘severely ill’ as longas they are in good health with no comorbidities and predisposing factors). To avoid this, they should either prevent risky contacts (difficult) till the next variant appears (in my opinion, just a matter of weeks) or take Ivermectin orHCQ as soon as symptoms manifest (but not prophylactically).

Thanks for this. I am one that's unvaccinated and haven't had covid. I follow the protocol ( d3, zinc, quercetin, k, melatonin and Listerine. Fingers crossed. 67 years
I feel like with c19 the youth was virtually untouchable in the beginning and then as vax/booster uptake became more widespread the younger guys started to get ill. My 5 kids just got sick in June, including the 11m old. All fevers and lethargy for 2 days- no biggy(no c19 jabs). That's about it for them, and I had a strange back ache with loss of taste n smell. We never "stopped' living early on and had to have been exposed to plenty of things so maybe they were early on🤷♀️. My concern is that this thing seems to be visibly affecting the younger and younger. Not to a point of concern but I am a little worried about little babies if it gets much worse. My 11m old has never been vaxxed for anything so seeing how he has handled all these weird rsv illnesses and c19 has been encouraging.
