Can The Virus Die And Disappear Completely?
, the virus in the body can die or just crystallize like that? So when the body’s immune is low, the virus can infect again. If that means that when a patient who is cured of co-19 can recur at any time?
Hello Larasati, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
In general, a viral infection in a person's body can recover completely if one's immune system is in optimal condition.
In certain types of viruses, it can indeed be found a virus that is 'silent' in certain organs / tissues of the body and can 'recur' if the immune system decreases such as in shingles (snake pox). At the time of 'silence', the virus does not crystallize / turn into a crystal, but only does not develop / multiply because it is suppressed by the body's tahn power.
Especially for COVID-19, because the current virus is a new virus that is still unknown in its entirety and how the future conditions of patients who have recovered from COVID-19, it can not be said whether later one day this infection can recur back because the virus is still present in the body or the virus has completely disappeared and the patient recovered completely like most diseases due to viral infections. Further research is still needed on the nature of this virus in the next few years.
Even so, still try not to be exposed to the virus and still maintain your body's immunity so that it is always in optimal condition so that it is not easily affected by corona virus infections or other viral infections.
I hope this helps.
