How long does immunity last after recovery from corona infection?

 13 Jul 2020 ( IBTN Bureau )

Even after recovering from the corona virus infection, there is a possibility of it coming back.

A new study has also shown that after the corona infection is cured, the immunity about the virus in the body remains for a very short time.

Scientists at King's College London are studying how the body makes antibodies to the corona virus, how many weeks and months this antibody lasts.

Antibodies found in all 96 people involved in this study were able to inhibit the corona virus. But antibody levels began to decrease over the course of three months.

However, it is not clear yet that the level of the antibody is likely to be vulnerable to the same virus. However, immunity is also short lived in common flu vegrah. In such a situation, there is a possibility of catching the same virus.

This study also showed that many times the antibodies present in the body cannot be measured, this does not mean that the body does not have immunity. Because only antibodies do not protect the body. The body also produces T cells to fight against external viruses.

This entire case still needs to be studied in detail, especially in cases where people are getting infected for the second and third time. Are they falling ill or does their body easily contend with the virus? Detailed studies can prove important to understand how effective a vaccine will be and when it will be necessary to give boosters to increase immunity.
