All 76 participants in the study were reported to have developed antibodies in 21days against the Covit-19 virus. The researchers noticed T-cells' formation, an essential component of the immune system, in 28 days. They also found that the immunity created by the Vaccine was similar to the immunity that people had after recovering naturally from the corona.
