PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! TV's Dr Hilary Jones says that contracting and recovering from Covid gives you a similar level of protection from the virus in the future as the vaccine does. Speaking to hosts Ben Shephard and Susanna Reid on Good Morning Britain, Dr Hilary was discussing an 106-year-old woman named Connie Titchen, who contracted the illness twice in 12 months. While surviving Covid does not stop you from contracting it again, it is thought your symptoms will not be as bad the second time around and you are far less likely to be hospitalised, reports The Mirror. Ben asked: "Can you explain a little bit, lots of people didn't think you could get it twice. "Connie has had it for the second time and they tested her in the care home, she was asymptomatic the second time around, it didn't affect her too much did it?" Dr Hilary explained: "Yes, it depends, it could be that immunity wanes, which it can often do in the elderly quite quickly, we don't know how long immunity against Covid infection lasts. We don't know how long vaccination immunity lasts yet.

. "So it's possible to get it twice, possibly from a new variant." Susanna read out the results of a new study that said contracting the illness previously gave patients 85% protection against asymptomatic and symptomatic reinfection - which is the same level of protection the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine gives. "That is what you'd expect with many other viral infections for which we have vaccinations, if you have the natural disease, you get immunity, if you have the vaccination, you get immunity in a similar way," said Dr Hilary. "So it's what you'd expect, but it's good to have it confirmed."
