This is the second article in a two-part series on COVID-19 with Dr. Shane Speights, Dean of NYITCOM at Arkansas State University; College of Osteopathic Medicine;

In an interview with Dr. Speights, the physician answers questions and discusses the following topics regarding COVID-19.

How antibodies work

Dr. Speights discussed the significance and role of antibodies in post-COVID patients.

The doctor said that research has determined that for the most part people have an antibody response that persists at least up to five months or longer. The amount of antibody needed is up to each person. It depends on how each person responds to the virus and how much virus in which they were exposed. He posed the following questions, “When you get exposed to the virus, the question is how much virus did you come in contact with? Did you come in contact with just a little bit of a virus or did you come in contact with a lot of the virus? Is it somebody that has COVID sneezing your face, or were they just in front of you just talking?”
