Coronavirus: Recovered patients re-infected in Wuhan

As at Thursday, it is recorded that between 3% and 10% of patients cured of the coronavirus in Wuhan have contracted the infection again after being discharged.

This is the result of a study conducted by two hospitals in the capital of Hubei, considered the epicentre of the pulmonary epidemic.

Doctors from Tongji Hospital, where the virus was identified, claim they found no evidence that these individuals (all asymptomatic) infected other people.

City health authorities say these newly positive patients will be hospitalized only if they exhibit symptoms of the disease. For the others, there is a two-week quarantine.

In China, the problem of asymptomatic patients is emerging, which are not counted in the official estimates. After five days without any new infection, Wuhan has registered a new case. He is a doctor from the city’s university hospital: he is thought to have contracted Covid-19 from one of his symptom-free patients.

To date, the number of infected people in China exceeds 81,000, with 3287 deaths. Yesterday there were 67 new cases, all imported from abroad.
