In the United States, where the coronavirus epidemic is not subsiding, Columbia University doctor and researcher Daniel Griffin described cases of repeated illness of COVID-19 citizens in the podcast This Week in Virology.
Griffin said that his patient was confirmed infected with the coronavirus for the second time in early July вЂ” three months after recovery.
вЂњRecent reports and conversations with fellow doctors have shown that my patient is not alone. For example, two patients in New Jersey apparently became ill with COVID-19 for the second time almost two months after making a full recovery,вЂќ he said.
According to Dr. Griffin, the example of this patient can be noted that secondary coronavirus disease can be much more complicated. During the first infection, the patient had a slight cough and sore throat, and the second time the disease was accompanied by high temperature, shortness of breath, and oxygen starvation.
As you know, the number of detected cases of infection with a new type of coronavirus in the world exceeded 14 million on Saturday, July 18.
WHO announced four scenarios for the spread of coronavirus in the world. Half of all new cases of coronavirus infection are registered in just two countries, and almost 80% are in 10 countries.
