JAKARTA, Waspada.co.id – Home Minister Tito Karnavian claims the corona virus (Covid-19) is classified as weak because it has a fat content that can be destroyed with 70 percent alcohol and artificial and natural ultraviolet light, such as the sun.

“This virus is a fatty virus, so it is weak. The way to kill it is to destroy the RNA genetic material inside, “said Tito during the World Hand Washing with Soap National Campaign on Katadata Indonesia’s Youtube channel, Thursday (15/10).

“Some studies claim it can be destroyed by ultraviolet light. Both natural ultraviolet rays like the sun are the best, “he continued.

According to Tito, the corona virus can also die with alcohol above 70 percent and chemicals containing ether and chlorine. The ingredients, he said, have been contained in hand sanitizers to various types of soap.

“We can destroy this virus by destroying the fat membrane. If the blanket is destroyed, the virus will be destroyed, ”said Tito.

Seeing this, Tito believes that hand washing is very important to reduce the spread of the corona virus. Washing hands, he said, must be done after handling objects that are indicated to be prone to spreading the virus.

“Because the hands are the part that is easy to talk about holding our nose, our ears. There are droplets, aerosols, in our hands we have the virus, then we hold our nose and mouth. We will be exposed, “he said.

To date, the cumulative number of positive cases of Covid-19 in Indonesia has reached 349,160 people. Of these, 273,661 people were declared cured and 12,268 others died.

However, according to researchers in the field of Radio and Optical Technology, at the LIPI Electronics and Telecommunications Research Center, Yusuf Nur Wijayanto previously stated that Ultraviolet rays, especially ultraviolet C (UV-C) only play a role in weakening the virus.

He cited the opportunity to weaken the virus if UV-C rays were emitted in the right dose. “UV-C rays can weaken microorganisms including bacteria, germs, viruses up to 99 percent,” Yusuf told CNNIndonesia.com, Tuesday (16/6).

Yusuf said there had not been any experiments regarding the effect of UV-C rays on the SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) virus. However, he conveyed several previous bacteria and viruses, for example SARS to MERS weakened 99 percent after receiving UV-C rays.

“But it can be predicted that (SARS-CoV-2) can become weak, of course, with a different dose of UV-C radiation from each virus,” he said.

Related to the work of UV-C rays, Taufik explained that this was done by emitting it on a surface of the object that wanted to be sterilized for some time. This step was taken to meet the minimum dose to weaken the target virus. (cnnindonesia / ags / data3)


Changes in temperature, 100,000 cases of flu-like are on the way (which will create Covid alarm)

Strong wind, snow in the mountains, storms on the Tyrrhenian Sea. With the sharp drop in temperatures that has affected almost all of Italy, a surge of colds awaits us, with the risk that they can be confused with suspected Covid cases. And since schools, perhaps out of caution, are sending children home for too a simple sneeze or a temporary stomach ache due to urgent evacuation needs, Monday could turn into a field day. So the following weeks. TOwe will have at least 100 thousand cases of flu-like forms estimates the virologist of the University of Milan Fabrizio Pregliascor. From 4 to 8 million Italians will be affected, as every year, by the “cousin viruses” of the flu which give precisely similar symptoms, but tend to be milder. There are 262 viruses of this type compared to 4 of the actual flu. They frequently strike during this period, before the actual flu arrives and, in general, just when the temperature changes begin, they are very common in schools.

Symptoms that can get confusing

In this year of pandemic, even trivial symptoms such as a slight cough, cold, fever will create alarm and a possible overload of the laboratories for the execution of swabs with serious consequences on the surveillance system. the first test: let’s start the battle of winter comments the expert. These flu-like forms, the more mundane will be more challenging. Only one symptom can alarm the fear of the coronavirus and trigger the need for a differential diagnosis, calling into question the individual pediatricians and family doctors who will have to assess the need to perform the swab. The problem represented by symptoms: colds and nasal congestion are present in 7 to 35% of Covid cases; cough from 38 to 80% of cases, while fever from 40 to 80% and it is easy for illnesses of this kind to suspect a Covid infection and trigger all measures to expel from school. (How to try to distinguish Covid, cold, flu)

What we risk with sudden changes in temperature

Abrupt changes in temperature can cause colds, pharyngitis, tonsillitis, sinusitis, hoarseness, flu, headache, especially in children, the elderly and people with severe chronic diseases (who are physically weaker people). Usually diseases affecting the respiratory system. It is not, therefore, so much the heat or the cold that makes us sick, but rather the sudden heat or cold that catches the organism unprepared, which does not have the time to adapt to the new situation.

Try to reduce the thermal shock

So what to do to avoid getting sick? Try first of all of keep the temperature between the outside and the inside as balanced as possible. Besides the temperature it is also important to adjust the humidity rate in environments, which should always be around 40-50%. In addition to this, clothing also has its own influence precisely because the climatic fluctuation is so sudden that we are often not dressed properly. Not surprisingly, in order not to get caught off guard, it is ideal to dress like an onion, that is, a sweater with a sweater, a light anorak for the evening. In this way, you are ready to leave the sweater and jacket if necessary, but you are equally ready to wear them again if needed.

The flu vaccine does not protect against flu-like syndromes

Since the symptoms are similar between influenza, flu-like syndromes and Covid-19, we must not lose clarity. Typically, i virus parainfluenzali – continues Pregliasco – they present with fewer symptoms, even one, and resolve within a few days. The real flu, on the other hand, tends to travel with intense and prolonged cold, therefore more likely from December onwards. The flu vaccine, according to the virologist, could be very helpful this year. However, it will not protect us from “cousin viruses”. For this – he observes – in the presence of fever, cough and cold, even if vaccinated against the flu, it is not necessary to immediately think about Covid-19. The good news is that regardless of the vaccine or not, a milder flu season is expected this year. At least according to what happened in the southern hemisphere: mask, hand washing, distancing, that is all the prevention measures against Covid-19, will also be useful for the prevention of flu, concludes Pregliasco.

The Task Force Called Indonesia Can Be Covid-19 Free Without Vaccine, But …

Wiku Adisasmito National Task Force Expert Team (Photo: BNPB)

JAKARTA, Waspada.co.id – Spokesperson for the Covid-19 Handling Task Force Wiku Adisasmito said that Indonesian people can be free from Covid-19 without using vaccines.
This was in response to the statement by molecular biologist Ahmad Rusdan Handoyo who believed that Indonesia could be free from the Covid-19 pandemic without having to wait for the vaccine to arrive.

However, according to Wiku, this can only happen if the Indonesian people are disciplined in carrying out health protocols, such as wearing masks, maintaining distance, and washing their hands diligently.

“Indeed, we can be free from Covid-19 without a vaccine with a change in behavior, so we don’t get infected or get infected, so we must carry out health protocols. That’s cheap people’s immunity, ”he said via text message, Monday (14/9).

In addition, the prevention of the corona virus can also be done with the 3T method, namely testing-tracing-treatment which is supported by changing behavior patterns in the community. “The 3T is for surveillance and treatment, so that you don’t get infected or get infected, you should still carry out the health protocol,” he said.

Previously, molecular biologist Ahmad Rusdan Handoyo said that Indonesia did not need to wait for the Covid-19 vaccine. This is because the discovery of vaccines and drugs takes a long time.

He said the key to breaking the Covid-19 pandemic chain was a combination of 3T (testing, tracing, and treatment) and 3M (wearing a mask, maintaining distance and washing hands).

This key must also be supported by a lockdown policy or Large-Scale Social Restrictions (PSBB) which must be obeyed by the community by reducing mobility which is a factor in the spread of Covid-19.

“A combination of 3T, 3M and ‘lockdown’. Because vaccine clinical trials are not necessarily successful, anticipatory steps are needed, ”said Ahmad when contacted CNNIndonesia.com, Sunday (13/9).

Ahmad said the SARS and MERS pandemics that were caused by a corona virus that was similar to the SARS-CoV-2 virus could be resolved without vaccines and drugs. Both pandemics ended before clinical trials were completed.

However, SARS and MERS are quite easy to identify because they cause symptoms for infected people. While Covid-19 most patients do not cause symptoms, treatment is often too late.

Therefore, Ahmad said the importance of the PCR test to detect Covid-19 cases that did not show symptoms, because people who did not cause these symptoms could also infect people around them.

“As soon as starting to colonize in the upper respiratory tract, while the host is embracing, talking and even shouting without wearing a mask and keeping a distance, the virus that has replicated is finally wasted in the droplet path. It all spreads before symptoms appear, “said Ahmad.

“When we talk about SARS-CoV-2, the number of virus particles accumulates before symptoms. So if we use the rapid antibody test, we will be too late. Because to break the chain of transmission, identify as quickly as possible who carries this virus, “added Ahmad. (cnnindonesia / ags / data2)


Coughing Differences Due to Corona and Common Cough

Nusantaratv.com – Coughing itself is the body’s natural defense to remove irritants, such as mucus, pollen, smoke, allergens.

Cough is usually an early symptom of a disease, both mild and severe. Coughing is a diagnostic tool for doctors or medical personnel to treat a disease. Like a cough caused by the corona virus or Covid-19.

The question is, how do you tell someone who has a normal cough or a cough because of the corona virus?

The cough caused by the corona virus is similar to a normal cough. Therefore, people who are suffering from cough are advised to wear a mask to prevent the risk of transmission if they are positive for Covid-19.

Before giving a diagnosis to a patient, usually the doctor will ask a number of things to the patient concerned, such as:

  • How long has it been coughing, days, weeks?
  • When is the worst cough, morning, afternoon, night?
  • How’s the cough, dry, wet, persistent, hard, soft?
  • Are there other symptoms, vomiting, dizziness, insomnia, weakness?

The doctor will declare that the patient has a stone because of the corona virus if the cough is dry, persistent, and is accompanied by shortness of breath because the corona virus attacks the lung tissue. In addition, the prominent symptoms that often accompany a corona cough are fever and fatigue. Dry cough does not produce phlegm. The sound of a dry cough is usually harsh and originates in the back of the throat.

Another feature of a corona cough is a dry cough that appears suddenly. For some people, coughing often arises because of habit, for example smoking a lot. Meanwhile, the corona cough appears without a clear trigger. In a study in China, more than 60 percent of patients positive for Covid-19 showed cough symptoms. Even so, the cough is not always dry.

Dry cough can also turn wet. For example, lung infectious pneumonia often starts with a dry cough that can cause shortness of breath. As the infection continues, the air sacs of the lungs can fill with inflammatory secretions, such as lung tissue fluid and blood, and then the cough becomes wet. At this stage, the phlegm becomes frothy and blood red in color.

Other Symptoms of Patients Who Experience Corona Cough
Cough accompanied by fever and shortness of breath are symptoms of the corona that are found in most cases of Covid-19. According to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are several other symptoms that appear within two to 14 days after a person is exposed to the coronavirus.

Here are some of them:

1. Body aches and chills
Covid-19 patients report symptoms of pain all over the body and chills that make the body shiver especially at night.

2. Sudden confusion
The CDC said the condition of corona patients was more serious when they experienced symptoms of sudden confusion. For example, being unaware of your surroundings and being unable to get out of bed.

3. Digestive problems
A study in China of around 200 early Covid-19 patients showed symptoms of digestive problems in some patients. Among them are diarrhea.

4. Conjunctivitis
Pink eye or conjunctivitis is found in 1-3% of corona patients in China and South Korea. Pink eye is a highly contagious disease caused by a virus.

5. Loss of sense of smell function
The initial symptom that accompanies a corona cough is anosmia or loss of the ability to smell. In moderate cases of Covid-19 in South Korea, about 30 percent of patients were found to show this symptom. Whereas in Germany, two out of three positive cases of corona show similar symptoms.

Covid-19 as a new disease for which there is no vaccine is still being studied until now. Including about the symptoms. To make sure someone is positive for corona, special tests for health facilities are needed. If you experience a cough accompanied by other symptoms that point to corona, you should immediately have a special check with the Covid-19 procedure so that you can immediately get a proper diagnosis.

Symptoms of Corona Virus Infection, Fever First or Cough First?

Sunday, 13/09/2020 12:49 WIB

Jakarta, law-justice.co – A study published in the journal Frontiers in Public Health found a sequence of possible coronavirus infections began to emerge.

These findings can help doctors in the analysis process, so that patients get the right treatment immediately.

The study suggests that the possible sequence of symptoms in patients is fever, followed by cough, muscle aches, then nausea or vomiting, and diarrhea.

Peter Kuhn, professor of medicine and biomedical engineering at the University of Southern California (USC) in the US, explained that this sequence is important to know in order to distinguish the symptoms of Covid-19 from other diseases.

“This sequence is very important to know when we have overlapping disease cycles such as flu that coincide with covid-19 infection,” he said. As reported by kompas.com, Sunday, September 13, 2020.

In that study, if patients could be identified early, hospitalization time would be reduced due to better approaches to Covid-19 treatment.

Scientists had predicted a sequence of symptoms based on data from 55,000 coronavirus cases in China at the symptom incidence rate.

All these data were collected in February 16-24 by the World Health Organization (WHO). They also examined influenza data for comparison.

The data was obtained from 2,470 cases in North America, Europe, and several other areas that were reported to health authorities from 1994 to 1998.

“The order of the symptoms is important. Knowing that each disease develops differently means doctors can identify more quickly whether a person is likely to have Covid-19, or some other disease, thereby helping them make better treatment decisions,” said lead author Joseph Larsen.

Fever and cough are very often associated with various respiratory diseases.

However, it is timing and symptoms in the upper and lower digestive tract that differentiate Covid-19.

“The first two symptoms of Covid-19, SARS, and MERS are fever and cough. However, the upper GI tract (nausea or vomiting) appears to be affected before the lower GI tract (diarrhea) in Covid-19, as opposed to MERS and SARS,” write the researchers.

This study also states that not many patients experience diarrhea as an early symptom.


Various symptoms of the Lenox Hill Hospital doctor, New York Dr. Robert Glatter, said the study also shows that patients with seasonal flu are more likely to feel a cough before a fever.

“In fact, this may be difficult to see because flu often starts suddenly with a triad of symptoms, including back pain, chills, and a dry cough.” said Glatter.

Glatter said the study findings are potentially useful when evaluating many patients in busy clinical settings. He also shared his experiences while treating corona virus patients in New York City.

“In general, although fever is usually the most commonly described early symptom of Covid-19 infection, the reality that I see on the front lines is more varied,” he explained.

“In fact, some patients may present with only loss of taste or smell and otherwise feel well. I have also seen patients present with symptoms of ‘Covid-toes’ or a skin reaction (reddish blue discoloration) in response to acute inflammation, without any fever. cough, or other respiratory symptoms, “he continued.

Glatter said other patients also experienced malaise, headaches and dizziness that in some ways resembled stroke symptoms, but without fever, cough or evidence of upper respiratory symptoms.

According to Glatter, the bottom line is that health care professionals should be vigilant and keep an open mind when evaluating patients who may have symptoms associated with the disease.

Therefore, it is very important to understand the development of symptoms of a person infected with Covid-19.


Often makes panic amidst the Corona Outbreak, Coughing is in fact the Body’s Natural Form of Defense from Viruses, Here’s the Difference between Regular Cough and Coughing Due to Covid-19 – All Pages

Gridhot.ID – Cough and sneezing as if to be things that make us panic in the middle the plague corona this.

Many immediately assumed cough be a marker of someone exposed covid-19.

even though cough itself is the body’s natural form of defense against irritants, such as mucus, pollen, smoke or allergens.

In the case of virus corona, cough generally felt by the majority of symptomatic patients. Based on data from the Handling Task Force Covid-19, it was recorded that 70% of patients were symptomatic positive cough.

How do you distinguish a cough due to Covid-19 and a regular cough? Given that Covid-19 irritates the lung tissue, the cough becomes dry and prolonged. The cough is accompanied by shortness of breath and muscle aches.

As the virus starts to develop, the lung tissue fills with fluid and you may feel more short of breath as your body struggles to get enough oxygen.

The difference between dry and wet cough

Quoted from Science Alert, April 17, 2020, a wet cough expels phlegm from the lower respiratory tract into the mouth. This wet coughing sound is caused by fluid in the airways and can be accompanied by a wheezing sound when you inhale.

The lower airway has more secretory glands than your throat, which is why lower respiratory tract infections cause a wet cough.

Meanwhile, a dry cough does not produce phlegm. It usually starts at the back of the throat and produces a rough sound.

A dry cough does not clear the respiratory tract, so sufferers often describe it as an unsatisfactory cough.

Senior Consultant Pulmonary Critical Care Medicine, Aster Prime Hospital, Dr. Ravindra Nallagonda said, dry cough occurs because there is inflammation or irritation of the respiratory tract.

“People may feel or experience tingling or hoarseness in the back of their throat which can also trigger a cough reflex,” he said, as quoted by the Times of India, April 1, 2020.

Dry cough which indicates that someone is suffering from corona virus is:

– Continuous dry cough
– Cough that occurs in at least half a day
– Does not happen occasionally just because you cleared your throat or something is stuck in your throat
– This cough is something the sufferer has just felt.

According to the CDC’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), coughs that occur in people with influenza often occur suddenly. Patients will also recover in a relatively short time, which is less than two weeks.

In addition, coughs that occur in people who have the flu will be accompanied by a runny nose and sneezing, while people with Covid-19 do not.

This means that a person who shows a cough is accompanied by a runny nose and is preceded by a sneezing phase, it is possible that he will catch the common cold, quoted from Business Insider, March 12, 2020.

If you have a dry cough and suspect a corona virus infection, you should be aware of other symptoms, such as a prolonged high fever, loss of taste or smell, shortness of breath, and digestive problems.

Meanwhile, what you can do is take medicines to relieve coughs. If the cough is persistent, you can use an elevated pillow while sleeping. This can help reduce and relieve irritation.

Coughing and Standing Make Sperm that Have Entered Will Come Out Again?

“Although this depends on the health status and age of the man, most sperm will die within 15 to 30 minutes on the skin or surface,” Langdon said.

Regardless of the surface, sperm is considered dead, and cannot cause pregnancy, after semen – the ejaculatory fluid that holds sperm in – has dried up. For example, sperm on a cold, dry sheet can die faster than sperm on a warmer surface such as human skin.

“Although sperm can survive on the skin or outside the body for this short time, the chances of the sperm fertilizing the egg and causing pregnancy are very low,” Langdon said.

To cause pregnancy, Langdon said, a person must touch the sperm and then the vagina before it dries, or the sperm must drip into the vagina.

Ejaculate in the Bath, Are you Pregnant?

Michael A. Witt, MD, a urologist and male fertility specialist at Reproductive Biology Associates, explains that getting pregnant from loose sperm in a hot tub or warm shower is impossible. Because once the sperm is scattered in the water, it is no longer protected by the semen, and dies quickly.

“Apart from health and age, temperature and humidity also determine the age of the ejaculated sperm,” said Witt as reported by Insider.

Witt said sperm can only survive in a hot tub for seconds. Because the water is very steamy and the chemicals that make up the jacuzzi are toxic to sperm.

However, if a partner has penetrative sex while in a hot tub or hot shower, pregnancy is possible.


Positive Cases Increased Sharp 180 Thousand, Epidemiologist: Indonesia Must Lockdown

Illustration / photo: between

JAKARTA, Waspada.co.id – University of Indonesia epidemiologist Pandu Riono suggested that the Indonesian government enforce it lockdown or regional quarantine so that the spread of the corona virus (Covid-19) can be suppressed optimally.

According to him, the number of positive cases which reached 184,286 as of September 3 is already quite large, so the lockdown needs to be implemented.

“There are more than 180 thousand cases, what should be done is lockdown, PSBB is tight. All modes of transportation have been stopped, except for food logistics, ”he told CNNIndonesia.com, Thursday (3/9).

Pandu assessed that the government not only needs to increase the capacity for virus testing and tracking, but also to limit the population’s activities to the maximum. That way, the spread of the virus can be really suppressed.

Besides lockdownPandu said that the government could also re-implement strict large-scale social restrictions (PSBB). Not like now which has been loosened up.

According to him, the PSBB implemented in Indonesia has never been strict. As a result, the spread of the corona virus cannot be quickly suppressed by the rate of transmission.

“We have always been PSBB-PSBB but not serious, whereas if we are serious about PSBB, lockdown everything, the case is 2 weeks to 1 month, decreasing,” said Pandu.

Pandu said the government also needs to focus on dealing with the corona virus by optimizing health facilities. Don’t use drugs or vaccines yet if they already exist.

According to him, the drugs or vaccines that will be circulating are not necessarily suitable for use in Indonesia. Not to mention if it causes side effects that are safe for everyone.

“Focus on public health“We don’t need vaccines or drugs whose side effects we don’t know,” Pandu explained, “said Pandu.

As of September 3, positive cases of the corona virus in Indonesia have reached 184,268 cases. As many as 24.1 percent or 44,463 active cases still need treatment.

So far, 132,055 people have recovered or about 71.7 percent of the total positive cases. then there were 7,750 deaths or 4.2 percent of the total positive cases in Indonesia.

Previously, Acting Director General of Health Services at the Ministry of Health Abdul Kadir said that PSBB was no longer needed. According to him, PSBB will have a negative impact on the wheels of the economy.

“We no longer need, for example lockdown, you have to PSBB, you don’t have to. If we are lockdown or PSBB, what happened? The economy is not moving, our country is in a recession, ”said Abdul. (cnnindonesia / ags / data2)


Coronavirus, in what order do the symptoms develop?

A chill followed by a stomach ache. Or an annoying sore throat, perhaps after an evening spent on the beach with a little breeze. Will it have Covid? And away with the memory to think about when there could have been contacts at risk. At the restaurant? At the beach bar? The queue at the supermarket checkout? In the meantime, as a precaution, one silently isolates oneself a little from other family members, perhaps sleeping alone, warning one’s closest friends of a malaise that in other times would never have been reported. A summer sore throat just a year ago would have been cataloged as a normal episode, today it can cause concern.

The importance of recognizing the symptoms

Recognizing the first symptoms of Covid-19 is fundamental to intercept a possible infection, but without being seized by anxiety. We know that the symptoms of a Sars-CoV-2 infection are very similar to those of the flu, so much so that at the beginning of the epidemic, not distinguishing the two diseases caused the widespread spread of Covid-19 throughout the world. evident that the differential diagnosis is possible only with the swab but now a study published in the journal Frontiers in Public Health by a group of researchers from the University of Southern California at Los Angeles has identified the most common temporal order of the symptoms of Covid-19, also identifying how this ranking changes compared to other respiratory diseases, in particular those caused by the influenza virus and the coronaviruses that cause Sars and Mers.

The Covid order

The study results indicate that Covid-19 tends to start with fever, then progress to cough and muscle aches, followed by nausea and vomiting, and eventually diarrhea. The flu, on the other hand, most often begins with a cough, followed by a fever. Sars and Mers are similar to Covid-19: fever and cough, but in third place there is diarrhea, before nausea and vomiting.

The secondary symptoms

To draw up the ranking, the researchers used the data released by the WHO relating to over 55,000 cases of Covid-19 confirmed in China, comparing them with thousands of cases of seasonal flu collected by the University of Michigan, of almost 150 cases of Sars registered in the ‘Toronto area and 45 cases of MERS reported in South Korea. Researchers have shown that even in the presence of secondary clinical manifestations, such as sore throat, headache or exhaustion, the sequence of the main symptoms remains in most cases unchanged. This means that there is a high probability that the fever will appear first, confirming among other things the importance of measuring the body temperature to contain the spread of the coronavirus.

Not a diagnostic method

The order of symptoms is important, the author said Joseph Larsen, expert in computational biology and bioinformatics. Knowing that each disease progresses differently means that doctors can identify earlier whether it is Covid-19 or another disease by making better treatment choices. Larsen and colleagues explained that their model is not intended as a do-it-yourself diagnostic method, but it can help to decide, for example, to isolate oneself in advance while awaiting a screening that clarifies the actual positivity.

Coronavirus: first case of reinfection in the United States – Ultima Ora

(ANSA) – ROME, AUGUST 29 – A 25-year-old from the State of Nevada who had contracted the coronavirus and then was cured has become ill again: this is the first case of reinfection ever documented in the United States.

Genetic tests conducted by the University of Nevada Reno School of Medicine and the Nevada State Public Health Laboratory indicate that the young man has contracted two different strains of the coronavirus, according to CNN.

The patient tested positive for the first time in April after experiencing a sore throat, cough, headache, nausea and diarrhea. He then improved towards the end of the month and later tested negative on two swabs.

The young man had no symptoms for about a month, but on May 31 he began to feel unwell again – with the same symptoms as the previous month – and five days later he was hospitalized with respiratory failure and was back again. positive result.

The Nevada researchers analyzed the genetic material taken from both coronavirus samples and the result indicates that they are two distinct viral infections.

As is known, the world’s first case of coronavirus reinfection certified by genetic testing emerged just a few days ago and involved a 33-year-old from Hong Kong who was struck four months later by two distinct strains of the SarsCov2 virus. (HANDLE).
