The Coronavirus may linger in the body for weeks after people recover. This means that you could still transmit the virus to others,
There was a study done out of China that suggested the new coronavirus could persist in the body for at least 14 days after symptoms have cleared.
The good thing is that most people are not likely that contagious in the post-symptom period, and the viruses that tend to hang around in people also seem to be viruses the body develops a strong immune response against. So, if the virus is staying in people, its harder for them to be re-infected.
