Because the risks here are not only on one side of the equation. Humanity cannot remain on permanent lockdown forever. At some point life has to go back to normal.
Personally as a betting man, if I knew for certain that I had the antibodies, I would be much less worried about getting reinfected (just as I don't worry about getting measles or other diseases that I've been vaccinated for).
