    This is exactly why I hate all this talk about antibodies by people that don't really know what they are talking about/looking for.

    Firstly. The two types of anti-body they test on are only in your plasma for up to 24 and 50 days anyway so would be completely pointless unless you've recently had it.

    Secondly. After that your T Lymphocytes remember the virus and and reproduce the anti bodies if you happen to contract the viral again. So to say immunity will be lost is complete guess work. Studies seem to suggest it's taken at least 5-10 years (possibly more) for this virus to mutate enough to infect humans. Unless that was to suddenly speed up, saying something like in the Guardian report is scare mongering.
    Thanks for the clarification. Further reading helped me conclude much the same. To be fair, the guardian piece is not on its own, most the papers and BBC are carrying the same story with a similar stance.
    If you choose not to decide you still have made a choice......
