The increasing cases of Omicron and the corona infection spreading due to it have kept sleep from the public to the government. Meanwhile, experts have told us how long immunity remains in the body after Omicron infection. The new Omicron variant of the coronavirus is causing outcry all over the world. The speed of its spread has also left the dangerous Delta variant far behind. By the way, Omicron has not been described by experts as deadly like Delta. But now the next question has arisen that how will the Omicron variant affect immunity or what will be the immunity level in Omicron infected people.
Antibodies formed after Omicron infection
Regarding how the immunity of a person who has been infected with Omicron will be, says Professor Paul Hunter, Infectious Disease Expert of the University of East Anglia, 'Omicron or any other variant improves your immunity. This immunity becomes effective against that variant. But even then he keeps infecting other people. Studies on people infected with Omicron have found that anti-N antibodies are made in the body of patients who have been exposed to the virus. Therefore, after recovery, that virus did not have any special effect on him.
Antibodies will last for 6 months
Studies have found that in 88 percent of cases, the coronavirus antibodies produced by Omicron infection remain in the body for at least six months and protect against infection. However, after 6 months their protection rate drops. Apart from this, it is worrying that the vaccine is less effective against variants with more mutations like Omicron. In such a situation, the booster dose gives protection against it to a great extent. Let us tell you that till now about 8 thousand cases of Omicron have been registered in India.
