Now, a research team from the University Medical Center Freiburg has been able to show that after a recovery from a SARS-CoV-2 infection, the body creates immune cells that remain there. These immune cells are designed to battle a new infection if the body interacts with one. The researchers believe that majority of people who have "survived SARS-CoV-2 infection have some protection against re-infection with SARS-CoV-2".

Dr. Neumann-Haefelin, Head of the Gerok Liver Center at the University Hospital Freiburg, said, "Our results suggest that immunity against SARS-CoV-2 can be achieved after an infection. Similarly, vaccines currently being tested in trials could provide significant protection against SARS-CoV-2". If you are interested in reading more about this study, check out this link here.
