Scientists See Signs of Lasting Immunity to Covid-19, Even After Mild Infections

Washington, (ST) - A recent American study revealed the presence of encouraging signs of the possibility of (permanent immunity) against infection with the corona virus. New research indicates that human immune system cells are storing information about the coronavirus so they can fight it off again. To the immune system, not all germs are equally memorable. But our body’s cells seem to be seriously studying up on the coronavirus.

Scientists who have been monitoring immune responses to the virus are now starting to see encouraging signs of strong, lasting immunity, even in people who developed only mild symptoms of Covid-19, a flurry of new studies suggests. Disease-fighting antibodies, as well as immune cells called B cells and T cells that are capable of recognizing the virus, appear to persist months after infections have resolved - an encouraging echo of the body’s enduring response to other viruses.

“Things are really working as they’re supposed to,” said Deepta Bhattacharya, an immunologist at the University of Arizona and an author on one of the new studies, which has not yet been peer-reviewed.
