Man gets coronavirus twice

The coronavirus pandemic is increasing rapidly in the US. A man has contracted Covid-19 twice, with the second infection becoming more tragic than the first.

Doctors reported that the 25-year-old man required hospital treatment after his lungs could not get sufficient oxygen into his body. He tested positive for the second time and is hypoxic (low blood oxygen) with shortness of breath.

The man was not suffering from health problems or immune defects that would cause danger.

Scientists reported that the man contracted Covid-19 twice. They said that a comparison of the genetic codes of the virus collected during each bout of symptoms showed that they are different to be caused by the same infection.
