TV Asahi reported that Yokohama City University will conduct a major study on people who have recovered from COVID-19 in order to determine the duration of the effectiveness of their antibodies. The network said freelance announcer Tamao Akae, who tested positive in April, will participate in the survey. The network said the university is hoping to test 300 to 400 people aged 20 years old or older right after they recover from COVID-19, about six months later, and again a year later to see whether they have neutralizing antibodies and how long the antibodies remain effective. The network said this will be the first major Japanese study on antibodies in people who have had the virus.
