US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — The presence of antibodies to coronavirus in human blood does not mean that it cannot be infected. On Thursday, April 30, said the representative of the World Health Organization (WHO) in Russia Melita Vujnovich.
“Absolutely does not mean, even if the virus does not mutate,” Vujnovich saying.
Vujnovic stressed that there is currently no data on how much antibodies that develop when exposed to the virus will protect against infection in the future.
On April 27, the head doctor of the Moscow City Clinical Hospital No. 15, Valery Vechorko, said that in Moscow they began to use rapid tests for coronavirus, which in 15 minutes allow us to determine the presence of antibodies to this infection.
