According to Parida, there are three to four persons who have tested positive for CoronaVirus again after recovery.
A study will be conducted to ascertain whether it’s the same strain of the virus or any other that caused the reinfections..
The samples of such reinfection cases will be analysed to find out the possible changes in genetics or their immunity level.
