A small study out of China suggests that the new coronavirus can persist in the body for at least two weeks after symptoms of the disease clear up.

The findings may even be good news, said Krys Johnson, an epidemiologist at Temple University’s College of Public Health. The viruses that tend to hang around in people’s systems also tend to be the viruses that the body develops a strong immune response against.
