British scientists found that in three months, immunity to COVID-19 is sharply reduced

Immunity to coronavirus in people who have had the virus decreases dramatically in just three months. This conclusion was made by scientists of the Royal College of London, reports The Guardian.

Scientists have analyzed the immune response of more than 90 patients and paramedics of two London hospitals. It was found that three weeks after the onset of symptoms, people reached a peak in the content of antibodies in their blood, however, after three months, only 17% of the study participants remained highly immune to infection.

in this case, you may need to take the vaccine again.

According to the lead author of the study, Katie Dores, the findings from their study can be of serious importance to scientists who are trying to invent vaccines for coronavirus.

If, after a disease, a person develops antibodies that disappear in two to three months, the vaccine may happen the same. Therefore, patients may need re-immunization, as one dose of the vaccine may not be enough.
