Before I tested positive the second time, I was asked by the doctor to check my anti bodies, and the result came as 0.02, which means my body did not generate anti bodies from the first infection or I may have got a different strain the 2nd time, well thatís what my doctor mentioned. Now, should I check for anti bodies once again, before vaccination? Its been nearly 4 weeks since the date of my 2nd infection in April, I assume I can take the Vaccine after 30 days, and anyway since there is an availability constraint, I see myself getting the vaccine only by 1st or 2nd week of June. Hence checking if there are any tests that I need to run before the planned vaccination? Thanks in advance!
ICMR recommends taking vaccine after 8 weeks of recovery and american CDC recommends it after 6 months. Antibodies tests are called IgM and IgG. I am not a doctor.

Yesterday, I woke up with slight fever and sound in nose like in cold. And the situation after 24 hours is exactly same. Some more observations:
1- I took first dose of covishield on 10 May after which I developed high fever and it stays for 24 hours. After that everything was fine.
2- On 16 May, I rook bathe late at 3PM and sit directly in front of cooler. Only after sometime I realise that it is not comfortable so I switched off the cooler. Climate at my place is such that days are hot around 32℃ and in morning it cool down to 25℃ means lot of fluctuations in temperature so I am not ruling out the normal fever.
3- on 17 May, I woke up with slight fever and nose sound. However the temperature reading are around 99.2 to 99.8. it is not touching 100 but not going down either till now.
4- no sneezing, no soar throat at all, no cough.

Can I connect with any doc here for consultation on phone.
I am not a doctor but have seen enough to regard this as covid. Get tested asap if possible even by rapid antigen. Talk to a doctor urgently and monitor it as covid infection.

He had taken 2 doses of vaccine, but looks like Covid or its after effects still found a way through.
RIP Sir!
His voice was one of sanity. He handled the situation so well that it calmed the stormed mind of viewers. Om Shanti.

This query must have been discussed in the past but in this sea of information, searching it out is a herculean task.

How to decide if one can get vaccinated or not in case if he was asymptomatic, never tested, was absolutely fine, but just that he was exposed to a Covid+ case and stayed in isolation for 14 days and came out of it assuming to be not infected. Can he go right away and take vaccination after that 14 days of isolation. Is there any harm, say just in case if he were infected but never knew?

Any info from doctors about the 2 DG medicine from DRDO? Who needs it and how effective is it? I read it can replace Remdesivir at less cost and be more effective. When it will become available?

Just look at the sea of change:

The Coronavirus Thread-a4e713b78467494e887140348a906048.jpeg

Isnít this due to the various lockdowns enforced across the country? Even the TPR is on a downward trend.
