CHINA: New Coronavirus Strand Last Up To 49 days

Chinese researchers have warned of a new mutated version of coronavirus that could infect people for nearly two months.

Chinese military researchers found a middle-aged man who had the disease for 49 days, which is significantly longer than other durations of illness, according to reports.

He needed to be treated with a plasma transfusion from other COVID-19 sufferers who had recovered, it’s claimed.

Previous research showed patients who survived the virus normally tested negative after 20 days on average, with the longest previous case at 37 days.
