The takeaway is that these unvaccinated children will get it and recover, and have valuable antibodies the rest of their lives.

The best scientific knowledge shows that post infection immunity only lasts a few months. The number of individuals who have suffered two Covid-19 infections often within a year demonstrates this fact. Btw, chicken pox bacteria remain in your body and often re-emerge as a case of shingles. You have shingles multiple times. My wife has had two cases of shingles so far. It is horrible too, far worse than the chicken pox. We do not yet know if SAR-CoV2 (or the original SARS) linger in the body to re-emerge later in life during times of stress like herpes virus do. There hasn't been enough time to know.

Excuse me, the article didn't say how many summer campers actually died. Oh, that's right, COVID19 is less fatal than the common flu, measles, chicken pox and many other ailments for children in this age group. I'm sure AP would have announced a child's death in this story if they could have found one to write about. The takeaway is that these unvaccinated children will get it and recover, and have valuable antibodies the rest of their lives.
