‘Ignore the CDC’: Johns Hopkins Professor says half of Americans have ‘natural immunity’

Dr. Marty Makary, a professor at John Hopkins medical school, stated that half the American population has developed natural immunity to COVID-19. “I never thought I’d say this, but please ignore the CDC guidance,” Makary suggested.

He also told Americans to “live a normal life, unless you are unvaccinated and did not have the infection, in which case you need to be careful.” The remarks were made on the Vince Coglianese Show following recent scrutiny against the CDC and health officials, including Dr. Fauci. Since the FDA approved the COVID-19 vaccine for emergency distribution, efforts to vaccinate the US population have skyrocketed. Dr. Fauci told Insider, “Vaccines are highly efficacious. They are better than the traditional response you get from natural infection.” In contrast to this, Makary said, “Natural immunity works. We’ve got to start respecting individuals who choose not to get the vaccine, instead of demonizing them.”

Recently, Senator Rand Paul was scrutinized for announcing he will not be taking the COVID-19 vaccine, citing natural immunity upon his previous infection. CNN suggested, “But is he right that having had the virus means he shouldn’t get vaccinated? Science says no.” Citing Dr. Jay Varkey, professor of medicine at Emory University, “Even if someone has already had Covid-19 and recovered, like Rand Paul, they should be vaccinated. … We don’t yet know exactly how long immunity lasts after infection.” The differing scientific opinions on vaccination and natural immunity raise questions over the credibility of public health guidance.
