if you’ve had coronavirus, moh wants you for an immunity study

This is probably a line you never thought you’d hear, but if you’ve contracted coronavirus before and recovered, we want you!

We, meaning the Health Ministry (MOH), is looking for recovered patients to take part in an immunity study, called the Longitudinal Study of Neutralising Antibody Response, among Covid-19 patients in Malaysia.

“This research is important to find out the levels of neutralising antibody (immunity) in the blood that can block the Covid-19 virus from infecting patients that had been infected previously,” said Health Director-General Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah.

The study has been approved by the Health Ministry's Medical Research and Ethics Committee, and it will be conducted till July 2022.
