Patients recovering from the coronavirus can get infected again


Patients who recover from China's deadly coronavirus are at risk or relapsing or catching it again, a doctor working in the outbreak has warned.

One of the riskiest elements of the coronavirus is that people have no immunity to it because it's completely new.

And although the body is able to become partly immune to some viruses like flu or almost completely immune to others like chickenpox reinfections do happen.

The coronavirus gripping China's Hubei province is no exception, according to a doctor in the country's health commission.

Dr Zhan Qingyuan said there is a 'likelihood of relapse' for patients who have recovered from the coronavirus.

Experts in the UK said it was unlikely that Dr Zhan's claim is true and that there is so far no evidence of people relapsing from the virus.

'For those patients who have been cured, there is a likelihood of a relapse,' Dr Zhan said at a press conference.

'For cured patients, they should also harness their own health safeguards.'

The way people develop immunity to a virus is by creating substances called antibodies highly specific parts of the immune system which seek out and attack the viruses they are produced to fight.

Dr Zhan added: 'The antibody will be generated. However, in certain individuals, the antibody cannot last that long.'
