Health & Wellness• According to WHO, there is currently no evidence that people who have recovered from Covid-19 and have antibodies are protected from a second infection. • Age, gender and other health issues all increase the risk of becoming more seriously ill from Covid-19.• Recovery time will depend on how sick you became in the first place. Some people will shrug off the illness fast, but for others it could leave lasting problems.• Most people who get Covid-19 will develop only the main symptoms – a cough or fever. But they could experience body aches, fatigue, sore throat and headache.
