    South Korean Immunity Research Holds Promise for the NFL


    It’s happening. Possibly.

    A South Korean study, featured as the lead item on Tuesday’s NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, suggests that persons who have had the coronavirus (and thus who test positive for its antibodies) cannot get sick from the virus again — and cannot pass it to others.

    If that research can be confirmed, it becomes a huge step both for playing the 2020 NFL regular-season and postseason games and doing so in stadiums filled with fans. Anyone who has tested positive for the antibodies quite possibly would be able to attend football games without fear of catching or spreading the virus.


    Ditto for players who test positive for coronavirus antobodies. They’d be at no risk for losing time during the season via quarantine imposed by testing positive for the virus.

    It’s enough to make some players consider finding a way to get exposed to the virus in advance of training camp, to recover from it, and to then be good to go for the entirety of the 2020 season.

    I've heard of people getting Wuhan virus at least once again, sometimes twice.

    This could be very positive news. Hope this all pans out.

    Intentional infection sounds strange to me, I guess they want to play and get paid more than they are concerned about the virus.

    Not a false positive that wouldn't apply ..... only when the tests produces the antibodies is what's being said here. Antibodies prevent getting it twice. If you test positive but it happens to be a false positive the antibodies do not exist and if that's the case you can get it twice. So as the article points out only positive positives are being considered proven by the antibodies being present. Not only can't you get it again you can not pass it on.

    It is possible that the immune memory is short lived. More research is needed. Cross your fingers!

    Kimchi Pegula should lead the NFL in this initiative.
