Can A Person Contract Corona Virus Two Or More Times? by DrinkWater247: 10:35pm On Jun 19, 2020
I'm just curious please. If an infected person, treated/managed and discharged after tested negative, such a person come in contact with an infected person again, can he/she be reinfected the second time and so on?


Pardon my ignorance please.

On paper you shouldn't be able to but so far according to WHO you can still get reinfected. Though some research affirm the presence of covid antibodies, I think there's still question on how long covid antibodies last or if they're permanent

My friend a piece of advice but please no offense.
'OK' alone is not good enough response. 'Thank you' would be good and will show your appreciation.

Yes but the chances are slim due to antibodies
