This is the big question that arises at the moment in countries whereepidemic has weakened and among those who are preparing for deconfinement. In other words, all over the world, or almost.

Are we protected after a SARS-CoV-2 infection? And above all, how long are we?

These two questions have individual implications, of course, but also and above all, collective. Indeed, if theimmunity is bad, the virus will be able to circulate easily among the population and our previous efforts will be in vain. According to several data, immunity would be there. The majority of patients with a small cohort Chinese make antibody. Even though not having antibodies would be worrisome, there are other mechanisms to protect us, including immune response cellular. Not having antibodies does not necessarily mean that we are not immune. Variability in antibody response is common in the population because it depends on a plethora of factors. Research is progressing quickly and we will surely soon have more precise and robust answers. In the meantime, find the first answers in this video.
