Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

@Grandma Sunshine, wishing you better Smile
Likewise @Hurtle

As @admin said, the presence of antibodies are by no means indicative of long term immunity, providing at best, an ancillary role in viral immunity. CD8 T-cells are traditionally regarded as the white cells which actually target virally infected cells. An expanded and active population capable of clearing viral challenge is eventually replaced with a far smaller memory pool, which upon repeated challenge can rapid expand and mount a more robust response than the initial one. This is literally the concept upon which vaccination is based, as the memory population is long-lived and can persist for many years in some instances. A memory cell on encountering the same antigen, can rapidly generate an expanded and active population to respond. Whilst the hope is that any repeat encounter with the virus is cleared before one becomes unwell, if this is not the case any infection is often more rapidly cleared and therefore less severe.
Great news for those of you who have fought the ‘rona Smile

There's some really interesting info in this thread about vaccine production and how they work, that would I'm sure he interesting to a larger audience. There's a thread here that would be a great place for some of it: https://snowheads.com/ski-forum/viewtopic.php?t=152527&highlight=
I could just cut and paste the info to there, but I never like when people quote me out of context, so I'll cross my fingers that the very knowledgeable @Tazz2bme and @richb67 might come and share their knowledge there.

@Hurtle, If any, then I think the pre BB has the best chance of going ahead, as cases should be relatively low in the first few weeks after lockdowns are lifted. Hopefully, travel will be allowed.

Unfortunately you might have to settle for thst. Many people don't recover back to their previous levels so getting back to SuperGran might be optomistic Toofy Grin

the pfizer and moderna vaccines are of a new type - mRNA. While they need to be stored at -70 degrees C, they are actuallybsuper fast and easy to produce unlike traditional vaccines, as you just produce a molecule instead of growing a virus in a culture. So if those two vaccines work the companies would be able to make billions of them next year

To give an idea of how hard tourism has been hit this video is from the promenade at Stresa on Lac Major in Northern Italy. Taken in July 2020 at around 8pm it would normally be buzzing with people. As you can see the Grand Hotel Iles Borremees has been shuttered (as were all the big hotels) until March 2021 and the cafes you see are shuttered.

My local ski resort in tuscany has been hit really hard as well. They struggle a lot of the time on good years, much less with covid-19. There's a real chance it could die if misses out on this season.

The situation in Italy currently is not looking good: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-54937699

The highest risk red zones at the moment are Lombardy, Bolzano, Piedmont and Aosta Valley in the north, and Calabria in the south. Campania and Tuscany will join other regions placed under the strictest lockdown measures from Sunday. Authorities in Campania, which includes Naples, have warned that the health system there is close to collapse. "The situation in Campania is out of control," Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio told La Stampa newspaper on Friday. "We need urgent restrictions... people are dying."

Italian media has broadcast shocking scenes from hospitals in Naples. Staff at one hospital have brought oxygen tanks and other equipment outside to treat people parked in their cars because the emergency department was swamped with cases. Sad

On a more parochial ski related note I see that the Bolzano provincial area is in the red zone, which presumably includes some of the Sella Ronda area.
