Abstract

In May 2020, Deng et al. (2020) published their article providing the evidence that no SARS-CoV-2-specific antibodies were detected in 1,914 samples which excluded the possibility of 35 animal species as intermediate host for SARS-CoV-2 in Transboundary and Emerging Diseases. In order to ensure the stability of SARS-CoV-2-specific antibodies in storage serum samples, we strongly suggest that standard serum banks should be established.
