Most repeated cases of coronavirus infection are not.
According to her, it is almost always possible to talk not about a second infection, but about an untreated first. She pointed out that for millions of infected people there are only a few dozen cases of re-infection, which is “negligibly small”.
Goltzman also reassured the general public, saying that in case of real re-infection, the disease would be much easier. This is due to the fact that the body is already familiar with the virus and the immune system begins to actively produce the necessary antibodies.
On December 9 the head of Rospotrebnadzor Anna Popova stated about single registered cases of repeated infection with COVID-19. She also noted that there is no mass spread of this phenomenon in the country. Such cases can occur in all countries, mainly in people with weakened immune status.
Earlier the Ministry of Health recognized that in Russia there are registered cases of COVID-19 in patients. Denis Protsenko, chief doctor of the hospital in Kommunarka, said that the level of antibodies to the virus in Muscovites starts to decrease by the fourth month.
