Levels of protective coronavirus antibodies in people wane “quite rapidly” after coronavirus infection, say researchers.

The Imperial College London team found the number of people testing positive for antibodies has fallen by 26% between June and September.

They say immunity appears to be fading and there is a risk of catching the virus multiple times.
