For the first time in Hong Kong, a second coronavirus has been detected in a person’s body. The 30-year-old looks quite healthy and strong. Four and a half months after her first fight against Corona, she contracted the virus again. The UK news outlet BBC reported this news in a report on Monday.
The University of Hong Kong states that the man was in hospital for 14 days before recovering in the first stage. After that no other symptoms were seen on his body. Nevertheless, the second test showed the presence of the virus in his body.
According to Hong Kong scientists, genome sequencing has shown that the two strains of the virus are clearly distinct. However, the World Health Organization warns that it is not important to draw conclusions based on any one patient. Experts say re-identification is rare, but it is not a serious case.
“This is a very rare case of re-infection,” said Brendan Warren, professor of microbial pathogenesis at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
According to the World Survey, coronavirus has been found in 2,37,837 people worldwide so far. Out of these 6 lakh 17 thousand 97 people have died.
It is generally believed that once infected, their body develops immunity to the virus, which prevents the virus from infecting the same person again. And the strongest immune response has been found in critically ill patients.
It is not yet clear how strong this immune system is or how long it lasts.
The World Health Organization (WHO) says more research is needed on people who have had coronary heart disease in the past.
