Can I re-infected with coronavirus and how will it affect the vaccine? Source:

As we would not want to hide from the fashion industry, and news about him, he is with us for a long time

Just six months ago, a new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 came into our lives. At first, nobody believed that a mysterious disease from China will come to Russia and other countries. Later we started thinking about protective masks and ran to buy buckwheat with toilet paper. But a continuous stream of news, nevertheless, did their job – everyone's tired. Online counters of infected and dead, news that the coronavirus mutated/airborne/fraught with complications and the list goes on led to banal psychological fatigue. However, she can play with us a cruel joke – according to the results of recent research, immune to COVID-19 lasts only a couple of months. But how will this affect the vaccine?

Immunity against coronavirus

If among our readers there are those who are already infected with a coronavirus, then you and everyone else need to remain vigilant – immune to Covid-19 was maintained for only a few months. To such conclusion came researchers from king's College, London, thus putting into question the durability of potential vaccines against coronavirus. Reaction of antibodies to the coronavirus can reach a maximum of three weeks after the onset of symptoms, but the number of antibodies in the blood of infected people begins to decline after two months.

In a study published on – remember, this means that the work has not passed peer assessment – we studied the levels of antibodies 64 patients and six medical workers infected with COVID-19 in the period from March to June 2020. The researchers also observed 31 staff of health facilities who have agreed to regularly pass tests for antibodies to the new virus.

unfortunately, the pandemic kovid-19 in the beginning

The Results showed that the level of antibodies that can fight coronaviruses, peaked three weeks after the first symptoms, but then declined. While 60% of subjects had «powerful» the level of antibodies after an average of 23 days after the onset of symptoms, only 16.7% of patients the level of antibodies persisted through 65 days after recovery. It is noteworthy that the level of antibodies was higher in patients with more severe disease, although it is unclear why. Writes , antibodies were also observed in patients with asymptomatic course of the disease.

Moreover, the results showed that the reaction of the antibodies Covid-19 was similar to the reactions of other human coronaviruses such as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and seasonal coronaviruses, is associated with the common colds, in which the reaction of antibodies of individuals has a tendency «to weaken over time – from 12 weeks to 12-34 months after infection.»

herd immunity

A New study, as the authors of the article indicate that the reaction of antibodies circulating in the blood are reduced after infection and that further studies are needed to determine the level of antibodies in the blood necessary for protection from infection. In General, scientists agree that we need to continue to measure the reaction of the antibodies in those who have had Covid-19.

Anyway, the present work casts doubt on the effectiveness of the immune system in people who have had coronavirus. In other words, a refresher once you can get sick again. However, the results also challenge the durability of any potential vaccine.

the Results show that it takes about 10 days to the body has begun production of antibodies, and the most seriously ill patients will develop the strong immune response.

By the Way, according to the results of another study published in the medical journal The Lancet, the number of antibodies to Covid-19 among patients in Spain were insufficient for the emergence of herd immunity effect of the resistance to the spread of infection in a particular population, members of which have to do with this infection personal immunity.

Russian vaccine against coronavirus ready?

This may seem surprising, but the world's first vaccine against coronavirus is common among patients in August – at least this was stated by the representatives of medical University in Moscow, after the successful completion of clinical trials of the vaccine on volunteers. Recall that in June, First Moscow state medical University named after Sechenov began clinical trials of a potential vaccine against Covid-19 to 38 volunteers. Around the same time, the Russian military launched a parallel two-month clinical trials of the same vaccine, the newspaper Kommersant, citing defense Ministry.

The Study is complete. The obtained results proved that the vaccinesafe.

Head of the Center for clinical research sechenovskiy University Elena Smolyarchuk, TASS reported.

Earlier in July, Smolyarchuk reported that some participants , such as headaches and fever, which took place within 24 hours. The decision to engage the General public to the testing of vaccines against Covid-19 emphasizes Russia's desire to quickly move forward in the testing of much-needed vaccines today.

At the time of writing, Russia ranked fourth in the world in the number of confirmed cases after the US, Brazil and India. It is noteworthy that Russian scientists are working on almost 50 different projects vaccines.

But despite the fact that the race to develop a vaccine that would have helped the population to produce herd immunity, is in full swing around the world, recent studies show that asymptomatic patients may be a weaker immune response to Covid-19, because their antibodies disappear within two months after infection. In any case, the latest news, though disturbing, but not final.
