According to the latest research done by the scientist, antibodies against the coronavirus can remain stable for at least four months after it is diagnosed.


This research study was published Tuesday in The New England Journal of Medicine involving more than 30,000 people in Iceland and predicted that the antibody level increased for about two months after infection and then peeked through the four-month mark.

Many questions regarding the strength of the immune response to the virus and how long it lasts were raised. The earlier research saw that the antibodies could fade quickly and that people with no developing symptoms will not make any. Might not make many.

Experts from Harvard University and the U.S. National Institutes of Health who didn't participate in the study said, "provides hope that host immunity to this unpredictable and highly contagious virus may not be fleeting and may be similar to that elicited by most other viral infections,"
