Thus far, there had only been a handful of coronavirus reinfections reported around the world. However, the cases raise many questions about the immune system's response to the virus and how long immunity lasts.
A recent study says that although antibodies from a previous coronavirus infection might only last a short while, protection could still be possible. Experts point out that antibodies are only a small part of the equation and that people shouldn't be discouraged from developing a vaccine for COVID-19.
A new study reveals that immunity to COVID-19 could only last a few months. Findings from the research uncovered that in just two months, some coronavirus-recovered patients lose protection from the virus and are susceptible to getting reinfected once again.
