People who have been infected with the corona virus are as safe against re-infection as those who have received the Kovid-19 vaccine. This has been revealed by a survey of 20 thousand British healthcare workers. It has been claimed to be the largest research in the world so far. Early discoveries by scientists at Public Health England have shown that the case of recurrence is rare in people with Kovid-19 anti-bodies from earlier infections.
Corona infection gives immunity for five months
Researchers said that in research, only 44 cases were found among 6 thousand 614 people already infected. However, experts have warned that the discovery means that people who had succumbed to the disease during the first wave of the epidemic in the early months of 2020 may now be at risk of infection again. Public Health England regularly examined two groups of Volunteers between June and November. 6 thousand health workers had already been hit by the corona virus. A comparison of infection between the two groups found that the former Kovid-19 immunity provided 83 percent protection against re-infection.
Public Health England research revealed
The results released on Thursday gave a detailed statement. Sushan Hopkins, Senior Medical Advisor at Public Health England, said, “I am ‘very excited’ by the discovery that the infection provided strong protection from re-infection for at least five months.” He told that natural infection looks like vaccine which is very good news for people. However, data on possible safety after five months in research has not been provided. The statement said that the discovery did not reveal antibodies or other immune responses to the vaccine, nor did it reveal how effective the vaccine would be.
Response to the vaccine will be considered later this year. Scientists warn that people who have achieved ‘natural protection’ from the infection may still be able to carry the corona virus to the nose and throat and spread it to others without will. The researchers of the Siren Survey intend to continue the research, to find out whether the natural immunity can last more than five months. At the moment, it is important that everyone continues to follow the rules, even if it has been hit by the Kovid-19 in the past. Hopkins called on people not to ‘misunderstand their initial discovery.’
