Moscow: Immunity to coronavirus in those who have gone through COVID-19, on average, lasts about six months, Russian Health Minister said.

“Those who have had a mild form of the disease, usually have [immunity] for six months. Patients who have had a serious form of the disease, and who have developed a good immune response, sometimes we see that many of them retain immunity a little longer,” Murashko said in an interview with Nailya Asker-zade on the Rossiya 1 television channel.
