A study conducted by the Military Intelligence Task Force at the Israeli Ministry of Health revealed that individuals who have recovered from the Coronavirus face the risk of contracting new mutations.
The study indicated that those who were infected with the virus should receive the vaccine three months after their recovery, noting that the so-called South African strain B.1.351 contains 21 mutations, including the E484K mutation that allows the virus to bypass the immune system.
According to the information collected by the researchers, although anyone who has not been infected with the virus and received two doses of the “Pfizer” vaccine is not at risk of infection, those who have recovered are at risk of new mutations as those who have not been vaccinated.
The World Health Organization recently warned that the South African boom could infect recovering patients. It also recommended that people who were infected with the virus and recovered from it be vaccinated with a single dose.
And it asked recovering patients to undergo examination if they felt unwell and to maintain social distancing or quarantine if they were confirmed again.
