Hong Kong Reports World’s First Pandemic Re-Infection


The novel Coronavirus which has spread to 213 countries across the globe raised many questions and doubts and the reinfection of the respiratory disease is surely one of them.

Clearing all the airs and speculations about the reinfection, a person was re-infected with the novel Coronavirus who recovered from the virus after contacting the virus in April.

This new development added strength to the belief that the novel Coronavirus may re-infect the patient in a few months after recovering from the respiratory disease.

Going into detail, a 33-year-old man was found SARS-CoV-2 positive at Hong Kong International Airport screening. The researchers gathered substantial evidence to prove that the man contacted two various strains in both instances.

What’s even more surprising is that the man didn’t show any virus symptoms this time and the researchers are beliving that patients might develop mild symptoms with subsequent infections.

The peer-reviewed medical journal, Clinical Infectious Diseases published a study which states that the SARS-CoV-2 might remain in humans for a particular period of time.

The study also stressed that even though the patients developed immunity power through vaccination or natural infections they are still vulnerable to the disease and might get re-infected.
