What I found: I believe this post isn’t entirely either correct or incorrect. After doing some research, I found that in most scenarios, if the case is mild it won’t affect the immune system in the long term, if the case is more severe, it will. For example, I found that the CDC describes people who are immunocompromised who contract Covid-19 are more likely to get sick and be sick for a longer period of time. I also found an article posted by Nature Immunology showing that people who suffer ongoing symptoms of Covid-19, can be caused by immune dysregulation. I think after gaining research from different articles and sources, Ashish’s claim isn’t totally true, but not totally false at the same time. It really depends on the severity of the case and many factors regarding that specific person's health state before contracting the virus.
