Genetic sequence of the virus in the young that caught Covid-19 for the second time in the USA!


According to the information received, it was found that the genetic sequence of the viruses that infect the young caught twice in the USA with the new type of coronavirus (Covid-19) is different.

According to the article in the pre-edition of The Lancet magazine, a 25-year-old patient living in Reno, Nevada caught Covid-19 twice, first in mid-April and then at the end of May.

It was stated that the patient, who was diagnosed with Covid-19 in April, began to feel symptoms such as sore throat, cough, headache, nausea and diarrhea associated with the new type of coronavirus at the end of March.


Scientists noted that the patient, who recovered until April 27 and was negative for the Covid-19 test twice in May, became ill again at the end of May and admitted to the hospital with complaints of fever, headache, dizziness, cough, nausea and vomiting.

It was determined that the patient was sent home after the chest x-ray was taken, but went to the doctor again 5 days later and the oxygen rate in his blood decreased. This hospitalized person was diagnosed with a need for oxygen support, symptoms such as muscle pain and shortness of breath, and pneumonia. Covid-19 tests performed on the patient again were positive.

Experts examined the genetic sequence of the virus taken from the patient during two separate infections and determined that the viruses were different from each other.

In the article, it was stated that the patient was discharged after his treatment, and it was emphasized that the case revealed the possibility of a second infection being more severe than the first, even in young and apparently healthy individuals.

Previously, cases caught for Covid-19 for the second time in Hong Kong, the Netherlands and Belgium were recorded.
