A new Chinese study found people who recover from coronavirus may continue to test postive for days, or even weeks.

Of 60 patients studied, researchers found ten tested positive for the virus four to 24 days after being discharged.


It's likely the positive results were due to viral shedding, rather than re-infection.

Experts suggest healthcare workers continue to use PPE while collecting plasma from recovered patients.
