Japanese researchers have found that most people with Covid-19 have antibodies for at least six months after getting infected. This was reported by www3 with reference to the study.

To obtain such results, a team of scientists from Yokohama University and other institutions conducted a study of 376 people in their 20s to 70s who were infected with the coronavirus between February and May.

The researchers analyzed blood samples taken six months after these people became infected. The researchers found that 97% of people who were asymptomatic or had mild symptoms, and 100 percent of those with moderate or serious symptoms, had neutralizing antibodies in their systems.
