SEATTLE – A Seattle man is likely feeling very lucky after officially surviving COVID-19 twice. His case is only the third case in the United States where doctors confirmed reinfection.
Doctors at Swedish Medical Hospital say the patient is a man in his 60’s who lives in a nursing home contracted the virus again. He first caught the coronavirus in March and spent over 40 days in the hospital with a severe case of the virus. Then in July, he was admitted to the hospital once again with symptoms.
