The study published in the journal Cell said that it is important to understand how long people can remain actively infected with coronavirus as it provides new details about the virus.

The study said that the patient from Washington got infected with coronavirus very early in the pandemic and was tested positive for the virus several times over 105 days. The researchers said that the 71-year-old woman was immunocompromised due to chronic blood cancer but she never showed any symptoms of COVID-19. Read More...
