The study, published in the the Journal of Translational Medicine, found that among 177 health care workers who had recovered from COVID-19, all had persistent autoantibodies months after infection, including some which can cause injury to organs and tissues....

This led to some of the country's usually busiest streets, shops and restaurants being...
