The specialist indicated in an interview with Radio “Sputnik”, “The highest level of antibodies is usually recorded after a certain period of vaccination or infection. After that, the number of antibodies gradually decreases. But the test may show after that, the level of antibodies rises again.”

He says, “If there is a slight increase in the number of IgG and IgM antibodies, the reason may be that the measurement was done using different systems to measure the number of antibodies in the blood plasma. We must also not forget that each test has a specific error degree, and there are also personal fluctuations, and this Combined, they may give an elevated level of antibodies.”

“But if the antibody level doubles and more, it may indicate a second infection.”

According to him, this is practically the only sign indicating a new infection.

He says, “We know that half of the cases of infection are asymptomatic, that is, they are not in the form of a disease. In this case, the body reacts, as does the immune system, although the patient does not feel any symptoms.”

The specialist adds, that the levels of antibodies are practically important for specialists. In order to obtain immune protection, it is necessary to be vaccinated against “Covid-19”, and to be revaccinated every six months.
