New tests for antibodies to coronavirus infection are being developed in Russia. About it reported Head of Rospotrebnadzor Anna Popova in an interview with Naila Asker-zade on the Russia 1 TV channel.
“Today we see absolutely clearly that we need new tests that determine the strength of the immune system. We are working on this, and I am sure that soon we will be able to register new tests, ”Popova said, answering the question whether it is worth fearing re-infection with COVID-19 for those who had had coronavirus in the spring.
She clarified that they are being developed by the State Scientific Center for Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology in Obolensk and the State Scientific Center for Virology and Biotechnology “Vector”.
Popova pointed out that the first ones are still in use, “they were tuned and focused on very high levels of antibodies in the blood of those who had been ill”.
