Question to the Department of Health and Social Care
Her Majesty's Government how many antibodies have been identified which have had a neutralising effect on the COVID-19 virus.
Answer (Lord Bethell)
Characterisation of neutralising antibodies is still in its infancy. The role of neutralising antibodies in providing treatment or as a marker for protection against reinfection is not yet fully understood. Scientists at Public Health England and elsewhere are working in this area, and conclusions will be reported in scientific journals as new evidence emerges.
