Three times now since April I’ve been right in the midst of covid spreader events involving family. So much for folks being truthful about health issues. The latest being at Christmas.
25 people including 6 children under 12. Found out a few days later that two of the folks had active Covid and they knew it but they came anyway. 8 of the adults there came down with the virus. I sat next to those two in-laws for hours. Nobody bothered to tell me about any of this for 10 days. I never came down with a single symptom.

Went to the doctors office on Wednesday and had an antibody test done. Got the results back and it was negative for antibodies. Exact same thing happened at Easter, same results. So what gives? Do some folks just have a natural immunity or what?

It’s hard to believe that some people just don’t give a crap and would willingly put others at risk for their own selfish desires. I’ve seen similar behavior with some of my extended in-laws.

I’ve read several articles about how blood type may have some effect on natural immunity; O+ / O- being most beneficial.

I was petty ticked about it as were others. Especially since one of the spreaders is a full time firefighter. And I have an O+ blood type.

Someone should kick them right in the puss.

This ain't hard. If you're sick, stay the F home. Jesus, people are selfish as F.

I've said all along. This deal was going to expose people's true character, and some of it was going to be ugly. There are people that have been dragged out into the light for all to see. Some of that has been surprising and disappointing. Some of it hasn't been either.

My mother-in-law was sent home on hospice care about 3 weeks ago...still hanging in there! Naturally, the first week we were there every waking hours. There were also a lot of visitors stopping in to say goodbye. Sure enough, one of the visitors unknowingly had Covid and it spread like wild fire. My wife, father-in-law, sister-in-law, brother-in-law and 2 nephews all came down with it! My mother-in-law (thank the lord) and myself were the only ones that didn’t. I too, am O+...not sure that’s why I didn’t get it. My wife isolated for the full 2 weeks and never came out of the bedroom. I cared for her and always masked up and must have went through a case of Lysol. Now I’m ultra paranoid...I dang sure don’t want to get it, but it goes to show we’re all vulnerable to catch it. You just don’t know!

People like those are why we have mask mandates. Sad truth far to many people will do whatever they want and screw every body else. I know it probably makes me a bad person but if they give it to people and someone dies, I hope it is somebody they love.
A mask wont help keep you from getting it. Thats proven. It only protects others from your germs. A surgeon doesnt mask up to protect himself from the patient, hes protecting the patient from infection.
Anhyway, I am A+ IIRC and have had lots of interactions with people and one of whom had the virus. My gal had it and I sat right there on the couch with her trying to pamper her. Never got it.

At one point you swore you previously had covid. Now you have never got it. Or do you mean you never got it from your gal?
