Genomic evidence for reinfection with SARS-CoV-2: a case study
Genetic discordance of the two SARS-CoV-2 specimens was greater than could be accounted for by short-term in vivo evolution. These findings suggest that the patient was infected by SARS-CoV-2 on...

Okay, new paper out in @TheLancetInfDis. Yes, this guy was reinfected. Yes, he got sicker the second time around. No, it doesn't mean that this is common or that reinfection leads to enhanced disease. thelancet.com/journals/lanin…

Lots of coverage of this case study of symptomatic reinfection with SARS-CoV-2 after short period of time in US (thelancet.com/journals/lanin…). But when interpreting, worth remembering this advice from early in the pandemic: blogs.scientificamerican.com/observations/h… pic.twitter.com/7KT3Xzz64m

ICYMI, the case report of 25 yo man from Nevada who was reinfected and sick enough with second illness to require medical care. thelancet.com/journals/lanin… A wonderful commentary from @VirusesImmunity to make sense of what we know about reinfections so far. thelancet.com/journals/lanin…

Genomic evidence for reinfection with SARS-CoV-2 in 25 yr old from US: 🦠 within 2 months of 1st infection 🦠 2nd infection more symptomatic But: 🦠 remains rare occurrence 🦠 immunity may still >several months in vast majority 🦠 not bad news re vaccine thelancet.com/journals/lanin…

"the patient was infected by SARS-CoV-2 on two separate occasions by a genetically distinct virus. Thus, previous exposure to SARS-CoV-2 might not guarantee total immunity in all cases." thelancet.com/journals/lanin…

Here is another credible case of #COVID19 reinfection ~6 weeks after initial infection. In this case the 2nd infection was more severe. Still unclear how (un)common this is as there are only ~5 credible cases of reinfection documented to date. bit.ly/33TltCY pic.twitter.com/OzG2veYn3L
