Antibodies remain in the body for a long time after corona infection. Scientists from the Barcelona Institute for Global Health have made this claim in their research published in the Journal of Communication. Lead researcher Carlotta Dobano said that after infection, IgG antibodies made against the spike protein of the virus can remain in the body for 7 months or more.
This result has come to light after a study on 578 health workers in Barcelona. He explains that the time limit for the presence of the virus is increasing with a new form. In such a situation, now more work will have to be done on how long people who are vulnerable to infection can go safe with the help of antibodies.
According to research, health workers became more infected during the first wave of the corona epidemic. The study found that between March and October, the level of antibodies increased from 13.5 percent to 16.4 percent. It is a matter of relief that the level of IgG antibodies has been seen to increase even after 5 months in 75% of the people involved in the research. Cases of infection have also not been reported.
In Australia, from next month Moderna vaccine will start from next month in Australia battling the coronavirus. The government said that with the approval of the use of this vaccine, now a total of 3 vaccines will be used in the country.
Health Minister Greg Hunt said that the first 1 million doses of the vaccine would be available by the end of September. There is a Pfizer vaccine crisis in Australia, while people are hesitant to take the AstraZeneca vaccine after reports of blood clots using the vaccine. The outbreak of the delta variant is more in other states including Sydney, South Wales.
