Florida’s new surgeon general, Dr. Joseph Ladapo*, is spot-on with his observation that the best form of prevention from COVID-19 is for persons to have an infection because this will provide the best immunity. I am aware that he is correct because of a recent experience with a member of my family. He had a severe infection from COVID-19. He is past that now and is completely immune — not only for COVID-19 but flu and other respiratory infections as well. Dr. Ladapo’s recommendation works. Of course we are burying this family member next week.

* The surgeon general has commented that a previous coronavirus infection “protects people from getting very ill and also protects people from being infected again.”↩
