A recent study in Britain stated that most of those infected with the Covid-19 epidemic are protected from catching the Corona virus again for at least five months.

Scientists participating in a study conducted by Public Health England concluded that people who have contracted the epidemic are 83 percent less likely to have it again, compared to people who have not had the disease at all.

But experts warn that some people do actually catch the epidemic again and can transmit the infection to others.

‘Save other lives’

Professor Susan Hopkins, who oversaw the research team, said the results were encouraging.
