The Department of health of Moscow has revised the criteria by which citizens were sent to isolation because of the identified coronavirus. About it reports “Kommersant”.
In particular, the earlier threat indicator considered the level of immunoglobulin M (IgM) is greater than one. It was noted that the results of the analysis says about the stage of the immunological response to the virus SARS-CoV-2. Therefore, all patients with a high IgM is recommended to send to the isolation.
However, it later emerged that this figure could remain high against the backdrop of high rate of immunity (IgG), when a person is already infected with a coronavirus. In spite of this, some Muscovites were tested as part of testing of citizens for antibodies, was sent to isolation again. Therefore, the result of increased IgM, which encouraged self-isolation, have changed.
The publication notes that the Department directly information about the change is not confirmed. However, it was recalled that the IgM is two or more and high IgG mean that a person has immunity to coronavirus. “The presence of IgM suggests that the virus may still be in the body, and people can carry the infection in a latent, asymptomatic form,” added there.
Earlier it became known that the proportion of residents of the capital with antibodies to coronavirus was grown. According to the latest data, population immunity is about 14 percent. Testing is available to all Muscovites, and the results stored in electronic medical records. In the capital used all types of checks of citizens for the antibody: enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), immunochemiluminescent (CLIA) analysis of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR).
