South Korea reports relapse of coronavirus patients

South Korean authorities have confirmed 91 patients who had been cleared of coronavirus have tested positive again. As per comments from Jeong kyeong, director of the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the virus could have been reactivated instead of the patients being re-infected. However they are not certain about the reason behind the trend, with investigations still underway.

Oh yeah virus that can go dormant and reactivate itself WEEKS later, this is definitely - not a BIO-WEAPON, artificial, modified, virus... not at all... God-damned Eager Beaver in a lab coat...

Diseases like this come and go all the time. This isn’t even the first Coronavirus outbreak. Both SARS and MERS were strains of Coronavirus as well. Just like with any other disease you can both recover from it and get it back. No cause for worry. What is worrying however is that there seems to be a new Coronavirus breakout every 8 years and given this one is far more deadly than SARS or MERS and has had caused far more disruption to our daily lives, I think it’s high time we started funding research into a cure for this disease to make sure it goes away and doesn’t come back in 2028.

It would not shock me if some of these people who seem to be getting the virus again already had the virus and the tests they took were faulty because I do believe south korea got alot of their testing kits from China and their have been stories about their testing kits not being up to most western countries health and safety regulations

What is the point of having economies shut down if people can just get it again we can't afford to stay like this much longer

This to kill older people now and in the future to control overpopulation? Brilliant, now follow Japan's example and get all your companies out of China ASAP

Because the death rate would be astronomical. If we had not shut down... This one doesn't replicate to a point of burn out... This one pauses to replicate n has long incubation rate n unique contagious route.... It's damn small.. Smaller in some data The what a 95n mask can filter out alone... It's y ur seeing a mask over the ninty five n.... It does something there others don't... Its mission is direct destruction of lung surfactant... N once it goes to work... It works fast to get ur own body to kill itself off via super immune overdrive... N the Dr's don't have the meds to stop it once it becomes pulmonary edema..... So it's very overwhelming clinically....thats how fast covid works once it's got u from rage to crs to arsd n into covid specific pnuemonia.... N any other underlying issue u have even a common cold can make this a tango with death

I distrust anything the CBC say. If their lips are moving they're most likely lying.

Maybe this virus goes dormant like malaria

Is the relapse from the opposite strain... There are two strains that create covid19

Has to be infected with one strain n. Then re infected with another or worse.... Long eclipse pause n re replication n false neg test in first place.... This is how u get a mutation... Let's hope no new strain..... Right now two strains s and l.... This is y testing n immunity data takes time... There is no insta pill... Could be like hiv which has zero herd immunity acquisition n no vaccine.... Just tons of drugs to treat and remove viral load detections

So maybe a shingles and chickenpox situation?

So the quarantine is meaningless then. There will remain a danger of reinfection or reactivation for months or years or possibly forever going forwards. A quarantine can't last indefinitely and won't cut down on infection rates in a virus that can reinfect people.
