TITLE: Scientists find COVID-19 antibodies fade quickly


“a new study shows that the levels of antibodies found in recovered coronavirus disease (COVID-19) patients declined sharply in just two to three months after infection for both symptomatic and asymptomatic patients.”

“Though the study utilized a small sample size, the researchers hope that the findings may help governments decide on allowing those with antibodies to travel to other countries. Antibody testing should be a basis for travel permissions, especially that the findings show that they may still contract the virus.”
“The researchers added that it is unsafe to assume that all who recovered from the infection are immune to the virus, showing that re-infection may still happen in the future.”

“Using antibody tests may not be effective in stemming the spread of the virus since the antibodies decline in just a few months. The study highlights the long-lasting theory that the infection does not provide long-lasting immunity in people who were infected.”
