Coronavirus Reinfection: Ever since the corona virus emerged as an epidemic, there has been a lot of discussion on the relationship between immunity and covid-19 infection. It is now clear that this virus affects all people differently, which depends on age, sex and other diseases. So now it is very important to understand how and how long our immune system fights the virus.
A recent study has claimed that our immune system is capable of remembering Covid-19 infection for at least 6 months, preventing the body from being infected again.
Immunity in COVID-19 patients
According to different research, the immunity of Covid-19 may be different for everyone. Some people have a stronger immunity, due to which they survive a severe corona infection, while some people become seriously ill due to poor immunity.
At the same time, antibodies to Covid have been found in the body of some people, who have never fallen ill. According to some research conducted some time ago, the immunity of patients infected with Covid-19 is much longer. However, it is not yet clear how long immunity can actually remember an infection.
Immune system remembers Covid for 6 months: research
In a research published in the journal Nature, it was observed that memory B-cell responses do not stop after 6.2 months, but continue to develop. Which means that those people who are again prone to Covid-19 infection do not let their immunity become ill and react quickly and protect them from infection.
A study published in a Science journal, reported that most parts of the immune system are able to identify the virus for at least 8 months and do not allow the infection to spread.
Memory B-cells’ role in protecting Covid-19
Memory B-cells play an important role when it comes to fighting the corona virus infection. They are a type of white blood cells that form in the lymph nodes or spleen during infection.
When the same virus or bacteria spreads the infection again, they allow antibodies to react quickly and reliably, in a similar way that they can also prevent the re-infection of covid-19.
