There are emerging reports that authorities received another case of re-infection after the 33-year-old, whose name has not been disclosed yet. No confirmation suggesting transmission or severity have been made as yet. Researchers also warned people to not “jump to conclusions” until further studies are done.
Even though for months, there has been evidence of reinfection, scientists weren’t able to figure out the exact cause of reinfection, until now, which is the first documented case. Earlier cases were dismissed as the existence of viral load in patients even after recovery or continuation of symptoms, dubbed as “Long COVID”.
Researchers also say that the new evidence might showcase how COVID-19, much like the common cold could continue to stay in circulation and infect humans, despite people gaining sufficient immunity to the infection from vaccination or naturalization.
