The World Health Organization said there's "no evidence" that recovering from COVID-19 prevents you from getting infected again.
The organization said Saturday that governments giving "immunity passports" from coronavirus regulations to those who have recovered from COVID-19 may increase the risk of spreading the disease.
In a statement, the WHO said: “There is currently no evidence that people who have recovered from COVID-19 and have antibodies are protected from a second infection.”
Germany and Chile have discussed issuing so-called "immunity passports" for work and travel, according to Vox. However, experts are still unsure what makes someone immune to the virus and are hesitant to support these risk-free certificates.
The WHO said studies show most recovering COVID-19 patients are left with antibodies that may provide some level of protection. But for how long is still unknown.
