Immunology COVID helps with immunity
Hello, everyone! Is it true that if you catch COVID twice, you will get better immunity? What's your opinion?
Any ideas why, colleagues?)
Strange, I have not heard such an opinion
@argentum I do not remember the source, but it was definitely from some scientific paper.
@argentum I've found it. The link is https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2021.11.11.21266068v2 . The idea is "Preprint studies from South Africa found the risk of reinfection with Omicron during South Africa’s fourth wave was substantially higher than the risk seen during the country’s second and third waves, which were dominated by Beta and Delta, respectively."
As I understand it, after the transferred omicron, immunity to it is still formed and the risk of further infection is reduced
