After taking a sample of 6,000 people infected with the Coronavirus, American researchers found that the body had immunity for at least five months against Covid-19. The research was done under the leadership of Indian-origin associate professor Deepta Bhattacharya at the University of Arizona.
Antibodies last for 5-7 months
Experts found in research that antibodies (antibodies) in the human body against SARS-CoV-2 last for about five months. Professor Deepta Bhattacharya said, “We have seen clearly that even after infection with SARS-CoV-2, high quality antibodies are produced in the body for 5 to 7 months.”
People worry about immunity
In this report published in the journal Immunity, Bhattacharya said that concern is being expressed against Covid-19 due to lack of immunity for a long time. We have used this study to invest such questions. We found that immunity in the body lasts for at least five months after developing. This research was conducted by Professor Janko Nikolich Jugich.
Relief between re-infection
The results of this study have come at a time when cases of Corona virus re-infection are being identified in many countries. Recently in America, a person has been found infected with the corona virus again after 48 days. The expert said, ‘When the virus first infects the cells, the immune system deploys short-lived plasma cells, which produce antibodies to fight the virus immediately. These antibodies appear in the blood test within 14 days of infection.
Antibody tracked in blood
In the second phase of immune response, long-lived plasma cells are produced, which produce high quality antibodies, which remain in the body for a long time. Bhattacharya and Nikalochi Jugich have tracked antibody levels in people found infected with SARS-CoV-2 for several months.
Researchers will be difficult
They found that the SARS-CoV-2 antibody is present in the blood for at least 5 to 7 months. They believe that immunity persists for a very long time. “This study has not only given us the ability to accurately test for antibodies against Covid-19, but also told us that immunity is real in the long run,” said Michael de Deck, Senior Vice President of Arizona Health Science.
