Virology experts from several Chinese institutions analyzed sera from 104 patients with severe COVID-19 admitted to Wuhan Jinyitan Hospital between January 17 and March 30, 2020.

Authors suggest further studies with increased sample size and longer follow-up may help determine nAb’s role in long-term immunity and contribute to vaccine development.
