While we all thought there will be hope for Nigeria, using China’s Covid-19 patients who tested negative,
the country has reported that 14percent of those negative cases has tested Positive again.
Doctors at a hospital in Wuhan, China, where the virus emerged reported that between 3 and 14% of cured patients became reinfected with the illness,
though it’s unclear whether they were contagious the second time, the South China Morning Post reported.
“So far there is no evidence to suggest that they are infectious,” said Wang Wei, the hospital’s president.
According to him, five patients who tested positive again did not have any symptoms and none of their close contacts had been infected.
He added that surveillance of similar patients showed that 80 to 90% had no trace of the covid-19 virus in their system
one month after being discharged from the hospital, according to the report.
