Kinetics of Viral Load and Antibody Response in Relation to COVID-19 Severity

IgG responses were detected in most patients in both severe and mild groups at nine days post onset and remained high level throughout the study. Antibodies cross-reactive to SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 were detected in COVID-19 patients but not in MERS patients.
