    Inforwars? I'm no Trumphumping tinfoil hat wearing troglodyte. It's been everywhere in the news lately folks. Come on now.

    Washington Post: https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/2020/03/31/coronavirus-serology-blood-tests/

    Here's another very interesting article about it: Are coronavirus immunity certificates really such a good idea?

    Here's one article on the discussions in the UK about it: The UK plans to issue coronavirus 'immunity passports' so people can leave the lockdown early

    And this: CDC begins blood tests to find undetected coronavirus cases

    I see a bigger legal issue with this....for the simple fact it would discriminate. Freedom for those complying what's voluntary, and lock down for those who decline what is voluntary and not legally obligated, would not make legal sense.

    Possibly. But the alternative is complete lockdown, which would delay the rebound of the economy. It could also be argued that the government is keeping people locked down for their own health and safety. If you could prove your safety was not in jeopardy, then you could get exemptions.

    I hear ya but I feel its way too complicated, especially when factoring in the global economy. Basically if the world remains in lockdown, the global economy will continue to shrink. The best approach in my opinion is a complete lockdown, and when the virus circulates at least 60 percent of the population, we all then become immune from this disease. Probably looking at a August/September timeline....however if things go as planned, we can expect loosening measures around end of June. That said international travel will probably stay restricted until early 2021.

    Well, do you mean complete lock down or all but essential business? I agree we likely hit that 60% or so by August/September. But I see no reason people could get more freedom after they have antibodies. But sure, could be complicated.

    We will probably see restrictions lifted for none essential business end of May beginning of June.

    This could be a big week in the global COVID pandemic IMO. With results beginning to come in from several mega trials around the world, we should finally get some real evidence to the effect of several potential treatments for the virus. Interesting to see will be the results of the large French trials which should be released later this week. They’ve tested 4 of the primary drug candidates (including hydroxychloroquin) on over 3,000 cases throughout Europe in the first real clinical trials of such magnitude.

    My hope, and of course it’s only hope, is that if one of these treatments can reduce the mortality rate and hospitalization rates to near influenza levels, we could see a much more rapid return to normalcy in the world. AND FOOTBALL! Fingers crossed.

    I can't see something like immunity certificates coming into play. For one thing, it will probable be a couple years before they really know if the antibodies really work or how long they work. It could turn out that a person with antibodies easily fights off the virus but can still transmit it for a period after exposure. Then there is the civil rights issue and bureaucratic nightmare involved in using the certificate to essentially give some rights that others would not have. I don't see this happening.
