COVID-19 UPDATE: Hong Kong man is first to become infected for the second time

COVID-19

A man in Hong Kong has become the first confirmed patient to be infected with COVID-19 a second time, according to researchers at the University of Hong Kong. That and more in today’s Wayne County Report for August 25, 2020.

The finding suggests that some patients, who recover from COVID-19, may have only short-lived immunity from reinfection. The case will likely also be significant for scientists who have been working on treatments using antibodies from recovered coronavirus patients, and those who have been scrambling to develop a safe and effective vaccine, though it’s too soon to draw any firm conclusions.

Countywide COVID-19 totals for August 24, 2020, indicated eight new cases in Taylor, upping the overall count to 939 this year. There were no new deaths. That total remains at 73.
