65 and over are at risk … Be careful!

According to the research carried out at the Statens Serum Institut in Denmark, it was determined that people with Covid-19 gained immunity for at least six months after surviving the disease, but people aged 65 and over were more prone to re-infection than young people.

In the research published in Lancet, one of the world’s leading refereed medical journals, it was determined that people under the age of 65 who managed to defeat the corona virus provided 80 percent immunity for at least 6 months. However, according to experts, this protection rate is around 47 percent for those over the age of 65.

Dr. Steen Ethelberg said, “Our research shows that young people who do not have chronic illnesses are less likely to get Covid-19 for the second time, but the possibility of getting Covid-19 again is very high for the elderly,” said Steen Ethelberg.

In the country where more than 4 million people had coronavirus tests in 2020, scientists made an analysis by examining the results of those who were tested in March-May, the first wave of the epidemic, and those who had a coronavirus test in the second wave, September-December. Dr. “This research reveals how much attention should be given to the elderly during the epidemic. Those who experienced severe symptoms and lost their lives are predominantly in the group over 65 years of age ”.

Experts argued that the elderly who have managed to defeat the coronavirus should also be vaccinated as soon as possible.
