The first death in the world due to re-infection with coronavirus was recorded in the Netherlands. According to a report by Dutch doctors published on the website of the Oxford University Press, a case of re-infection with coronavirus was recorded in an 89-year-old Dutch citizen suffering from Waldenström's disease and receiving anti-B-cell therapy.
"Initially, she was hospitalized with a high fever, severe cough and a positive coronavirus test", - RT reports.
Five days after the start of the treatment, all symptoms of the disease, except for slight weakness, disappeared and the pensioner was discharged from the hospital.
However, two months later, she was again admitted to the hospital with a fever. She had a cough and shortness of breath. When the patient was tested for coronavirus, it was again positive.
This time, despite the efforts of doctors, the woman's condition worsened, and two weeks later she died.
