Context – ‘Hybrid immunity protects against new variants’
- Hybrid immunity, which is developed as a result of vaccination and natural infection, may work well in providing protection against new variants of SARS-CoV-2.
- When a human body is exposed to a natural infection or is being inoculated, it generates an immune response that helps it fight infections in future. This helps protect the body against pathogens such as Covid, which may lead to severe disease or even death. Hybrid immunity is believed to provide greater protection against SARS-CoV2 variant.
