### There is immunological cross-reactivity between various Covid variants,
so an infection provides some protection against reinfection by multiple
other variants. However, the tragic nightmare is a godsend to poseurs and
power-grabbers, so I wouldn't be too optimistic that a mere lack of
lethality will end it ;(
