SARS-CoV-2 Spike protein is critical for virus infection via engagement of ACE21, and is a major antibody target. Here we report chronic SARS-CoV-2 with reduced sensitivity to neutralising antibodies in an immune suppressed individual treated with convalescent plasma, generating whole genome ultradeep sequences over 23 time points spanning 101 days.

Background: In advanced clinical decision support systems, patient characteristics and laboratory values are included in the algorithms that generate alerts. These alerts have a higher specificity than basic medication surveillance alerts. The alerts of advanced clinical decision support systems can be shown directly to the prescriber during order entry, without
