The Health Ministry is urging Malaysian patients who have previously been infected with Covid-19 and recovered to volunteer and take part in their study on the virus.

Health director-general Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah shared the news on his social media platforms, saying that a group of researchers from the Institute of Medical Research (IMR) are studying the neutralising antibodies (immunity) in the blood of recovered patients.

This research is important to find out the levels of neutralising antibody (immunity) in the blood that can block the Covid-19 virus from reinfecting recovered patients.
