“Once you have the infection, it could remain dormant with minimal symptoms,” Philip Tierno Jr., professor of microbiology and pathology at New York University, told Reuters.

“And then you can get an exacerbation if it finds its way into the lungs,” he said

So she wasn’t reinfected, just went dormant for a bit.

also old news. A mod should consider closing so we don’t cause more panic.

I think since the virus is so new that despite showing signs of recovery the person was not fully recovered and just pushed her body too hard allowing it to reemerge.

This is definitely a subject area I’m waiting for more science to come out on because people can also rarely get something like Chicken Pox twice for a few reasons including having too mild of a case to begin with.

I thought they said once you get it you can’t get again..
Nobody said that. We know nothing about the virus. Except that it ends up being either mild or deadly.

As it has not been researched long enough you can only say someone recovered clinically, which means nothing.

Thats different. In chicken pox you can get each strain only once.

while we have different corona strains, it could also be that corona itself can be caught repeatedly, its sleeping virus like herpes or simply didnt recover fully and just went into recovery modus.
