No evidence that Recovered Covid patients are immune

The United Nations agency said in a scientific brief dated Friday that the concept that one-time infection would lead to immunity remains unproven and is therefore ineffective as a basis for the next step of the world’s response to the pandemic.

Some policymakers have proposed that the identification of antibodies to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, could serve as the basis for an ‘immunity passport’ or ‘risk-free certificate’ that would enable people to travel or return to work on the presumption that they are safe from re-infection.

There is currently no indication that people recovering from COVID-19 and possessing antibodies are being protected from a second infection.Such ideas are largely based on the belief that one can’t catch the coronavirus a second time an idea that world health authorities say leaders shouldn’t count on right now.
