    • An increasing number of COVID-19 survivors have tested positive again for the novel coronavirus in South Korea.
    • The caseload of coronavirus relapses more than doubled in a week within the country.
    • An increasing number of relapsed coronavirus patients have shown mild symptoms, and some of them might be contagious.

Him being a leading scientist on corona and you being a random internet troll will be enough for most people.

But here you go.

See you in 10 years, when you've learned enough german to understand it.

New virus detection in recovered patients is more likely to be a coincidence of pathogen residues.

When it comes to the question of immunity and COVID-19, that is the response of Professor Ian Henderson, Director of the Institute for Molecular Bioscience at the University of Queensland.
 
Research from China last month showed that between 3–14% of coronavirus patients tested positive for a second time after being released from quarantine. More recently in South Korea, 111 people tested positive for a second time, according to the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC).
 
While further epidemiological investigations are currently under way, KCDC Director Jeong Eun-kyeong told a briefing they believed it was not a case of ‘reinfection’ but rather that the virus had been ‘reactivated’ in the patients.
 
Australia’s Deputy Chief Medical Officer Professor Paul Kelly said while the numbers were relatively low, and not the normal trend, the prospect of possible reinfection was certainly ‘concerning’ and would need to be taken into account in the search for a vaccine.
 
‘We’ve only been in this fight against the virus for several months now, rather than years, and so it’s difficult to know what happens in the long term,’ he said during a press conference.  
 
‘Clearly if immunity does not last for a long time, then that has implications for the vaccine. And clearly if there is, for example, slight changes in the virus which leads us to be able to be reinfected, that also has vaccine implications and so we’ll have to take that into account.’

I'm quoting a guy that literally cocreated the first ever test for SARS back in 03 and has been researching it ever since. You are spamming random newsoutlets no one has ever heard of.

You, Sir, are shitposting.

When it comes to reinfections there are two major things to keep in mind.

- Throat swabs turn negative in most patients one week after after first symptoms. Even if the patient is still obviously sick. (Lung samples stay positive.)
- Anal swabs stay positive for a long time. It still seems unknown how long the body needs to get rid of the dead virus. The last part is important, so far virus from anal swabs did not reproduce in cell culture. (PCR tests can not distinguish between live and dead virus.)

So the question for reinfection studies is how and when the patient tested positive once more.

Clearly all “drive in testing” needs to be anal swipes from now on.

Sounds better than the DIY Anal Test Kits some are using claiming negative.

It would actually be a very fast way to cut down on positive test results.  Mainly because the number of people lining up for tests would reduce.
