According to reports from South Korea, positive results were encountered in tests performed on cases that survived COVID-19 disease. While the life of the virus is thought to be more than known, the World Health Organization started its research on the subject.
As the new type of coronavirus (Covid-19) continues to spread, the World Health Organization (WHO) reports that the virus has been reactivated in COVID-19 patients who appear to have fully recovered cases and the total number of deaths confirmed this weekend in America. started to research.

“We are aware that some patients’ tests (PCR tests) are positive after clinical recovery, but we need a systematic sample collection from recovered patients to better understand how long the live virus has come out of the body,” WHO said.
The life span of the virus may be more than known.
Based on available information, the lifetime of the new type of coronavirus is known to be about two weeks after the patient begins to experience symptoms such as fever or shortness of breath.
