Geneva, PTI. People who have strong immunity against the corona virus causing problems like colds, they have more power to fight against Kovid-19. Researchers have made this claim in a recent study published in the journal Nature Communication. Researchers took 825 samples for analysis of four other human corona viruses before SARS-CoV-2 came to light. Later samples of 389 people infected with SARS-CoV-2 were also tested.
Combining these analyzes with computer-based models, the researchers concluded how antibodies neutralize the invading virus. It was found that the antibodies of those who came in the grip of SARS-CoV-2 were also weak against the corona virus. SARS-CoV-2 causes Kovid-19 disease, while other coronaviruses cause common problems such as colds.
Researchers claimed that people who had high levels of antibodies against the common coronavirus were at lower risk of hospitalization even after being exposed to SARS-CoV-2. Alexander Trakola of the University of Zurich in Switzerland said, ‘Our study shows that a strong immune response against other corona viruses also increases immunity to a great extent against SARS-CoV-2.’
