An 89-year-old Dutch woman is believed to have become the world’s first person to die after being infected with the corona virus.
The woman was undergoing cancer treatment at that time. She was found to be infected with ‘genetically different’ strains of the corona virus in two separate episodes, which occurred two months later. Can people be re-infected with Covid-19. It still remains a mystery. In this case, the report remains doubtful, to find out what exactly happened.
In this case, the female corona virus test was never detected in the period between the first and second visits to the hospital. When found negative in the test, the doctors came close to proving that she would have recovered after being infected for the first time. And the second time admitted, the virus did not regenerate, which would still infect her. She had fever and a very bad cough when she went to the hospital when she was first positive after testing Covid-19. These symptoms of the woman disappeared and she went home after five days.
She returned to the hospital 59 days later with the same symptoms. This was two days after starting a new chemotherapy treatment for his lymphoma. She was again positive in the test of Covid-19 and died three weeks later. The doctors who produced her report said that the samples taken for both tests of the corona virus test were genetically different. “It is likely that she has been re-infected rather than being ill for long,” he claimed.
The authors of this report included scientists and doctors from various institutions in the Netherlands, led by Dr. Marjolygien Wegdam-Blans at the PAMM Laboratories in Veldhoven.
The report comes at a time when doctors in the US have confirmed the first case of a 25-year-old man in Nevada citing the disease as being re-infected with the corona virus.
