Scientists from Wuhan found that coronavirus disease permanently reduces immunity. Most patients with COVID-19 have lymphopenia - a temporary or persistent decrease in the level of lymphocytes in the blood.

As reported "News", in some patients infected with coronavirus, a decrease in the level of lymphocytes in the blood is observed within 11 weeks after recovery. This suggests that SARS-CoV-2 infection deeply affects lymphocytes and leads to long-term dysfunctions.

According to scientists, chronic leukocyte damage most often causes HIV. However, Russian experts say that, unlike this virus, coronavirus is not able to multiply in lymphocytes. Therefore, a decrease in immunity will not be permanent.

Russian coronavirus vaccine passes final tests. According to preliminary data, the test volunteers formed a stable immunity. Now in Russia there is in-depth work on 17 vaccines against coronavirus, which have shown themselves to be promising. According to Health Minister Mikhail Murashko, vaccination will be voluntary.
