COVID-19: 91 patients who recovered from Coronavirus test positive again

More than 90 people who have fully recovered from COVID-19 have been tested again, according to health officials in Seoul, South Korea.

The Korea Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) revealed on Friday that 91 people who tested for quarantine tested positive for a new corona virus.
KCDC Director General Yong Yong Kyong confirmed that the virus test would be carried out in such cases, the results of which were expected to take at least two weeks.

 

 

“We are isolating viral cells from respiratory organs of those who have tested positive for COVID-19 again,” Jeong told reporters.
Health authorities have said that the virus was highly likely to have been reactivated, instead of the people being reinfected.
Virologists and epidemiologists also said the positive results from the retesting, might have come from the virus reactivating and not from wrong diagnoses.
