Coronavirus Immunity

A new study may allay fears that the immunity after contracting COVID-19 is just short-lived. This time around, the study suggests that one can be immune to the disease for up to eight months after infection.

A study titled, “Immunological memory to SARS-CoV-2 assessed for up to 8 months after infection,” published in the journal Science, revealed that researchers from the La Jolla Institute for Immunology in California, analysed blood samples coming from 188 patients. Most of them were from San Diego.
