The US, Brazil, and India continue to occupy the top three spots for total confirmed Covid-19 cases.

France has overtaken Russia for fourth in total confirmed cases, with slightly over 33,000 cases separating the two countries.

Daily confirmed cases in France spiked toward the end of last week but have trended downward in recent days.

In India, daily confirmed cases continue to rise, although daily confirmed deaths remain below 300.

A study published in The Lancet by He and colleagues at the end of March has shown SARS-CoV-2 antibodies can last for at least nine months after infection.

The study obtained blood samples from more than 9,500 people in Wuhan, China at three separate times over the course of 2020 and tested the samples for antibodies.

Nearly 40% of the infected people in the study produced neutralizing antibodies that could be detected for the entire study period.
