We have another paper from our colleague Joe YEONG 杨宝诚 and his collaborators in Singapore to highlight! Joe Yeong et al. have published data from another intriguing case study showing that residual SARS-CoV-2 antigen and RNA can persist in various tissues of long-COVID-19 patients, even beyond a year since SARS-CoV-2 infection.
While these data have been generated from only two cases, other reports are emerging elsewhere of SARS-CoV-2 reservoirs in gastrointestinal and non-gastrointestinal tissues. It therefore seems possible that such viral persistence is underlying long Covid-19 symptoms in affected patients.
Take a read for yourself – the data are fascinating!
Nice work Joe YEONG 杨宝诚 et al. – it’s always a pleasure to work with you!
