That study is reported as only looking at the antibody level, and when one of the authors was interviewed on TV she commented that maybe the T-cell level is at least as important - so it's an incomplete analysis of the state of immunity which has been jumped on by the media (ITN reported yesterday evening that maybe this report makes the search for a vaccine irrelevant!)

Yup. Maybe we should be asking why the media wishes to fan the flames of fear in this manner?

Simple answer - It sells! They stay in front of people with scarey stressful stories.

It's all about money - their only product to sell are the words they pay people to put in their publications.
