Yes, you can get COVID-19 twice, but . . .

A new report from the UK confirms what many other anecdotal reports have found, namely that it is possible to get COVID-19 twice.

In this report, the authors cite the case of a man in his 40s who was admitted to hospital with mild COVID-19 infection 4 months after an initial bout of severe disease in April 2020.

That’s the bad news.

The good news is that his 2nd case was significantly milder than the firs tone, which is exactly what you’d expect if a primary infection produced some level of antibody memory in the subject, as all viral infections do.

And that should bode well for the future.
