Study Estimates Total Immunity to CCP Virus at Nearly 70 Percent in Texas

Nearly 70 percent of Texans are estimated to have total immunity, either natural or vaccine induced, to the CCP virus as of July 4, 2021, according to researchers from the University of Texas System. The researchers’ yet to be peer-reviewed study (pdf) is the “first fully data-driven estimation of total immunity to SARS-CoV-2” in Texas. The study involved assessing serological data, over 1-week intervals, of over 14,000 blood samples from 10,482 participants throughout Texas beginning Sept. 30, 2020. A census age-adjusted seroprevalence estimation of natural infection was then conducted and combined with the Texas Department of State Health Services de-identified population-level vaccination data as of July 4, 2021, to get an accurate estimate of total immunity at the state level. The researchers estimated that the number of Texans with naturally occurring antibodies to the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus was 35.3 percent and that the total estimated immunity was 69.1 percent, …
