South Korea’s top disease control official is saying that COVID-19, like the flu, can be contracted multiple times, even after a complete recovery.
This would seem to support recent findings in other countries.
The Commissioner of the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency, Jeong Eun-kyeong , said Monday that reinfection could be possible largely because the virus is constantly mutating.
South Korea is known to have three strains so far, and has a suspected case of reinfection that’s still being studied.
Jeong said another reason for reinfection could be that COVID-19 antibodies don’t last long.
