Those who contracted coronavirus infection during the first wave of the epidemic may be more vulnerable to a new strain of covid, despite the presence of antibodies, said Anch Baranova, professor at the School of Systems Biology at George Mason University.

"This news (discovery of a new strain of COVID-19 - noted by ed.) Is related to those who were ill in the first wave. Yes, they may not be completely protected from re-infection - as you are lucky. Depending on the type of antibodies that have accumulated in their blood", - said the professor at RIA Novosti.

Let us recall that a new COVID-19 strain was discovered in all areas of the UK, which made the country panic. The British are literally trying to escape from a new variant of the virus, which is usually 70% more infectious. In the meantime, dozens of states have already stopped air traffic with Great Britain. Since December 22, Russia has also suspended flights with this country.

Earlier, Ancha Baranova noted that the increasing infectivity of covid is "striking". She believes that the virus makes it mutate treatment.
