    Not only India but the US and Europe too reported reinfection cases.

    What are these instances of reinfection?

    According to the medical experts, the patients had not had adequate antibodies to combat coronaviral infection in all reinfection cases reported to date. Health officials have confirmed that the information about the CoV-2 virus is very little and a bigger portion is still concealed within the blanket.

    Further, patients may infect by the multiple strains of coronavirus rather than by viral discharge from the original or new infection in cases of reinfection to date. Researchers in Hong Kong also report that reinfection in COVID-19 disease is a common occurrence.

    Reinfection impact on future vaccines

    The currently developed vaccine candidates are designing the vaccine not only to help improve the immunity of the virus but also, in the event of re-infection, to reduce the disease’s severity. In vaccines acquired by individual applicants, the temporary immunity produced by the infection can enhance and increase.
