Chaiyaphum woman infected with Covid-19 for second time

A Chaiyaphum woman has contracted Covid-19 for the second time after having been cured of the virus while she was in Bangkok in the middle of March.

 

The woman, 38, had also returned from overseas in March and was found to be infected with the novel coronavirus. She was admitted to Phyathai 2 Hospital in Bangkok and completely cured. Then she decided to return to her hometown.

 

However, from April 3-5 she became sick again and went for a test. The result showed that her throat was infected with Covid-19.

 

Another case was a 42-year-old construction worker who returned from Qatar on April 2.

 

Both cases are now under treatment in local hospitals. Authorities will try to trace people who might have been in close contact with them.

 

On April 8, a report showed that Chaiyaphum has 109 Covid-19 patients. Eight were new cases. The local government has asked its residents to strictly follow curfew directives to limit the spread of the virus.

Id bet 1000 baht that Thailands tests are Chinese, and going by what's being reported, Chinas exported tests are unreliable

Hehe, I've been seeing those on Lazada. They look like those pregnancy test kits that are peed on. I wouldn't be surprised if that's exactly what they are, with "COVID-19" slapped on.

Theres a study that shows that in a number of cases, there are little or 

no antibodies present even after the patient is cured...this is what opens them up to 

re-infection...it's pretty interesting.

Yes. That's one study among growing evidence that this virus may hide out with low viral loads (giving false negatives after treatment) or that up to 30% of patients (mostly the ones who had mild cases) do not maintain sufficient antibodies to ward off reinfection. It was the topic of the latest of Dr. Chris Martenson's videos.

Much yet to learn and until it is understood well enough there will need to be regional waves of lockdown - to prevent overwhelming the hospital system of a region.

It is known that the current "nasal swab" tests are quite unreliable. Their quality depends too much on the skill of the person taking the sample, the "quantity" of virus in a given spot varies also.

Where is this vaccine........................

I have the feeling that, if there were true reinfection cases, a vaccine could become even more hypothetical.

Where is the Herpes vaccine?

Where is the HIV vaccine?

Where is the Zika vaccine?

 

Who knows, there may never be one for this.

Has anyone considered that having this flu-like virus may be just part of life, as in everyone having cancer cells in their body ?
