Topic: Antibody study offers hope for COVID-19 vaccine treatment.
Summary: Researchers say antibodies, made by the human body to fight the new coronavirus, could last for at least four months. Earlier reports suggested that these special proteins disappeared quickly. Galit Alter and Dr. Robert Seder are scientists from Harvard University and the U.S. National Institutes of Health. They wrote in the New England Journal of Medicine: “This study provides hope that host immunity to this unpredictable and highly contagious virus may not be fleeting.” The report, released this week, came from tests on more than 30,000 people in Iceland over four months. It is the most complete study yet on one of the body’s natural defenses against the new coronavirus. Researchers used two different tests for the study. They used nose swabs or similar materials to find out if people were infected. They also measured antibodies in people’s blood, which can show whether a person is currently infected or was in the past.

Alam said he has no right to prevent the Rohingya from going or not going to Bashan Char island. Besides, Alam said that the Rohingya have been living in their ancestral motherland Arakan from 16-17 century that’s why the Rohingya always requests to solve their repatriation process to return to their motherland Arakan, Myanmar.
