Recovered COVID-19 patient tests positive again in China

A woman in central China’s Hubei Province has again tested positive for COVID-19, months after her recovery from the disease, local authorities said on Wednesday.

The 68-year-old retiree in the city of Jingzhou was admitted to hospital after falling ill on Aug. 9 and following COVID-19 nucleic acid test showed positive result, said the Jingzhou COVID-19 epidemic control and prevention headquarters.

She was confirmed to be infected with COVID-19 on Feb. 8, but recovered for months, said the headquarters,
adding that “this is not a new COVID-19 case, but a reinfection.”

The woman is again being treated in isolation, but all her contacts tested negative for COVID-19.

Her home and areas of activities have been thoroughly disinfected.

Meanwhile, Russia may be able to produce five million doses of its new COVID-19 vaccine monthly by December, the Director of the Gamaleya Scientific Research Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology, Alexander Gintsburg, said on Wednesday.

Recall that the Russian Health Ministry on Tuesday became the first national health authority in the world to register a coronavirus vaccine.
