It is the first confirmed case of a US patient becoming re-infected with COVID-19 and the fifth known case worldwide.
The 25-year-old man who resided in Washoe County, Nevada, became seriously ill after the second infection. This was found in a study in the Lancet Infectious Diseases Journal, which raises additional questions about immunity to coronavirus.
A comparison of the genetic codes showed “significant differences” between each virus variant, meaning the patient intercepted the coronavirus on two different occasions rather than the original infection rebounding after dormancy.
Reports of secondary coronavirus infections in Hong Kong, the Netherlands and Belgium were no more serious than the first, but one in Ecuador reflected the US case, which was more serious.
“I think we have big problems,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci on Monday evening. “We now have a baseline of infections that vary between 40,000 and 50,000 per day. This is a bad place if you are going in the cooler autumn weather and the colder winter weather. We also want to see how the percent positivity goes down. “
