The collective immunity from coronavirus in the Nizhny Novgorod region is 26-27%, said the head of the regional department of Rospotrebnadzor, chief sanitary doctor of the region Natalia Kucherenko.
It is reported by newsnn.ru.
Laboratories in the region do tests for antibodies and transfer this information to the regional department of Rospotrebnadzor. Thanks to this, specialists can see how collective immunity is distributed among different ages and categories of citizens.
“If after suffering pneumonia about 60-70% have immunity, then after suffering acute respiratory infections - about 50% have immunity, among healthy people - about 15%. 26-27% is a total for all categories,”Kucherenko noted.
As the chief sanitary doctor of the region clarified, collective immunity is calculated precisely among those who have been tested for antibodies - in fact, it may be higher. In addition, vaccination against coronavirus will also contribute to an increase in immunity.
Earlier, professor of virology Alexander Chepurnov, in an interview with URA.RU, told what happens in the body with antibodies after the transferred COVID-19.
