As we all know, it is completely possible for a person who was previously infected by Covid-19 to get it again for a second time.

In order to stop that from happening in our country, the Ministry of Health is now looking for Covid-19 patients to join a study.

In a Facebook post, Health Director-General, Dr. Noor Hisham has given out the details of this study.

“A group of researchers from the Institute of Medical Research in the Ministry of Health would like to invite Covid-19 survivors to join a study of neutralizing antibody response among Covid-19 patients.”

“This study is important as it can help determine immunity against Covid-19 and to improve the understanding of antibody response among Covid-19 patients at different time frames.”

Other than that, Dr Noor Hisham also says that this study is essential to know the level of immunity in the blood that can prevent the coronavirus from infecting patients who have been previously infected.
