The first case of immunity loss and SARS-CoV-2 reinfection by the same virus lineage in Amazonia
Appears in Collections:
We report the first confirmed record of a SARS-CoV-2 immunity loss and reinfection for the Amazon region and for Brazil by the same virus lineage. The patient presented an asymptomatic condition the first time and an aggravated one after reinfection. We raise the possibility of a recessive genotype in the Amazonian population that does not generate an immune memory response to SARS-CoV-2.
