Recovery from the Covid-19 coronavirus disease does not protect him from re-infection. Although there is no evidence to suggest that those who have had coronavirus disease, immunity necessarily arises.
This is stated in the World Health Organization, reports the BBC.
“The World Health Organization (WHO) says that to date there is no evidence that people who have recovered from Covid-19 disease and who have antibodies are protected from reinfection” , indicates the report.
It is believed that people who have overcome the coronavirus may develop antibodies that can neutralize the virus, thereby preventing reinfection.
Screening for antibodies to determine if someone has had a coronavirus in the past is still considered to be one of the quarantine exit factors. However, according to the WHO, antibodies do not protect against new infections.
