Better immunity does not mean you won’t get COVID-19’: Infectious diseases expert


Active member
TNM spoke to Dr V Ramasubramanian, Senior Consultant, Department of Infectious Diseases at Apollo Hospitals in Chennai on what it means to catch the infection and then recover from the disease.
Every day, more number of COVID-19 cases are being reported across the country. From a 10-month-old baby to persons over 90 years of age, the novel coronavirus has not spared any. Recovery rates, on the other hand, have been slow but positive. While discussing how to stay safe, the topic of one’s immunity levels features in bold. What does one’s immunity level have to do with Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and what are some of the misconceptions we have?

TNM spoke to Dr V Ramasubramanian, Senior Consultant, Department of Infectious Diseases at Apollo Hospitals in Chennai on who is more susceptible to catching the infection, the possibility of getting infected again, on asymptomatic cases, herd immunity and the possibility of a vaccine in the coming days.

We know that people who are over 60 years of age, those with medical conditions and those with poor immunity levels are susceptible to novel coronavirus. But we have seen healthy youngsters and sometimes even children get infected. We have also seen very old people recovering from this disease. Why are some people more susceptible to catching the infection while others aren’t?
