Covid-19 re-infection ‘highly unlikely’ for at least six months, study says
People who have contracted Covid-19 are highly unlikely to contract the disease again for at least six months, according to a new Oxford University study.
Researchers say the findings are exciting because they represent an important step in understanding how Covid-19 immunity may work.
The study claims to be the first large-scale research into how much protection people get against re-infection after contracting the virus.
It was part of a major collaboration between the University of Oxford and Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust but has not yet been peer reviewed.
