51 Recovered COVID-19 Patients AGAIN Tested Positive For Coronavirus In South-Korea

Fifty-one people who recovered from coronavirus have tested positive again for coronavirus in South Korea. Korean health officials revealed that the patients were put in self-isolation in Daegu, the country’s worst-affected city.

Korea’s center for disease control disclosed that there are chances that the virus was reactivated in patients rather than the patients becoming re-infected.

Heath chief in south-korea believed that the virus may lay dormant in cells in the body. They said that for unknown reasons the viral particles may reactivated and started attacking lung cells again.

But there are no evidence that this scenario is true because the studies in monkeys have shown opposite results. Many experts said that maybe the patient’s test results were wrong.

An infectious disease professor, Paul Hunter, said: “I agree that this is not reinfection. But I don’t think these will be reactivations. Personally I think the most likely explanation is that the clearance samples were false negative.”

Professor believed that there are chances that the patient’s test result were wrong when they were released from quarantine. But actually they were still infected.

KCDC Director-General Jeong Eun-kyeong said a team of experts had been sent to Daegu. The team has been sent to conduct an epidemiological investigation into the cases. 

Previously, Japan had revealed that the patients could possibly relapse, after a report of an elderly man and women becoming reinfected.
