majority of people who have had the virus, according to a new study.

Researchers say 88% of participants who previously tested positive retained

antibodies for the full six months of the study.

It found 99% of participants who had tested positive for previous,

infection retained coronavirus antibodies for three months after being infected,

while 88% did so for the full six months of the study.
