Quality and not quantity of antibodies suggests if one may have severe COVID-19 or die of disease

Antibody development and neutralisation of the virus have been suggested to be some of the deciding factors that predict the outcomes of COVID-19. As a result, several studies have been conducted in the past few months to determine whether humans produce a robust immune response against SARS-CoV-2, the causative agent of novel coronavirus disease.
