The video contains a lot of immunology, so if that is a bit more than you want to tackle, here is the gist of it.
There has been a question since the beginning of this pandemic, as to whether or not you could get COVID for a second time. We weren’t sure if it would be like Chicken Pox, where once you’ve had it, you wouldn’t get it again, or if would be different.
The thing that was confusing was that we were seeing that our immune response does drop down after 4 or 5 months. However, it does not disappear! The memory cells in your immune system do remain, giving you continued immunity.
So, the bottom line is that f you have had COVID-19, your immune system will remember, and except for some rare circumstances, you will not get it again, nor should you be able to pass it to anyone else.
As with everything, this is the information we have as of today. We don’t know everything, and there are still many many unanswered questions. We are continually learning more, and I am just so grateful for the people who are out there doing the research!
