    I've heard that a person who had Covid-19 can donate plasma they can use to cure people who are sick.

    Antibodies are also used in vaccines to make people immune to future infections? What?

    COVID-19 is Corona Virus Disease 19, SARS-CoV-2 is the virus. One can get infected by the virus but nos develop COVID-19. All infected people can transmit the virus. Just an information.

    I have no idea..why these stupids…(sorry) talk mathematics all the time!. It seems no one care less of a person dying…just a number for them !
    Anti body test doest help..Present..but may be goof for future.
    Test the people right away..they complain..and treat. That is the best approach.
    I am f..g sick and tired of all these medicin-mathemeticians…!
    Cut it out.

    Come and get tested but what happens if thy find that you are super immune ? if you are it means you could be a super spreader because the virus keeps coming back ,doctors are looking for the super immune because they want their blood for imuno transfer tech taking it from the plasma pharmas will use it to make billions selling it as the cure !
    Do i want to be tested =in a word no i dont ! /UK

    0:41 „antibodies are also used in vaccines” – that’s bollocks, inactivated pathogens are used in vaccines, antibodies are used as antivenoms, not vaccines (A HUGE MISTAKE)

    The mouth has just as many ACE2 receptors in it's tissue as lung tissue. Though perhaps the structure of the lungs makes them more susceptible.

    ban sale of tobacco, cigarettes. peoples lungs are weakened by smoking, then the virus gets easy entry.

    Antibody test is the one they will use to get into your house to test you . And they can claim anything.
    If you were a bad citizen for sure you will test positive and be taken away .
    If you are a good citizen then you don't have the virus and ur test turns negative .
    Isnt that just great ?

    I got sick and it was bad but I never got tested… then I got sick again but only for two days. And yesterday I got sick and only for a few hours n a nap. I wonder if it was ever corona virus.

    Hang on, (regarding the guy answering viewers' questions) if the virus is present in your takeaway food surely it gets in contact with your throat, larynx etc. before it gets killed by the acids in the stomach. I thought that one of the reasons behind that washing hands thing was to prevent the virus enter your system through your mouth too, no??

  27. Robert Skolimowski

    June 3, 2020 at 1:26 pm

    Somewhat confusing, at the beginning of the interview the guy says those people who have recovered won't be able to transmit the virus, but only to later add that people can still be cariers of the bug thus able to infect others, even if they themselves won't get ill, did I get it right??

    the blood from covid patient to be used for antibody test should wait for another 14 days after the patient was tested negative of covid 19? would it give a better sample of the antibody?

    Why is the west so obsessed with toilet paper? Have they replaced bread, potatoes, rice with toilet paper as staple food? Ever since this lockdown in our country, now on its 5th week, i and many others have not even buy a single roll of toilet paper since we still have them from our last shopping trip months ago.

    I read reports that antibody tests for coronavirus, as of now, is not reliable. I also read that some people who have recovered from coronavirus do not have sufficient increase of antibodies, indicating that immunity has not been developed. I hope DW News delve into this and report up-to-date info on antibody tests.

    #askDerrick , Storing groceries in keller (which is normally dark and cold) for 3 days and then bringing them inside home will be a safe way to be sure that virus is no more on the grocery packages?

    I had way too much time to think about Covid-19! One idea that had crossed my mind was the same as a diabetes kit! We need to make a Covid-19 kit! I would purchase one if it meant getting back to work faster! The Covid-19 kit would consist of 4 test strips that one would put a drop of blood on it, wait and then Internet results to a designated website! One test strip per month for 4 months! The test strip could answer: Do I have Covid-19? Did I have Covid-19 without knowing (Carrier)! Just saying! One other idea was that the Government could mail everyone a Covid-19 kit and have everyone self test themselves! ???
