The second wave: South Korea has identified more than 100 cases of re-infection with coronavirusPictolic
South Korea reported that, according to recent tests, 116 of recovered patients newly tested positive for coronavirus infection. The situation is ambiguous and experts are trying to understand, in what business: whether it's a mistake when testing, or re-infection, or reactivation of undertreated diseases.
However, most doctors are inclined to the last option — that the body of these people the virus as a hid, then showed himself again. In any case, that would not be good. Undertreated patients released from hospitals, can trigger a new outbreak.
The number of people infected with the coronavirus worldwide, already exceeds two million people. In South Korea, the situation under control: on Monday there were only 25 new cases. But the increase in the number of patients with recurrent disease is a serious concern for physicians, because a week ago, such cases were halved.
South Korea urged residents to follow the rules of strict social distancing, at least until April 19. However, as the number of cases is decreasing and the weather is improving, an increasing number of people ignore these recommendations.
It now looks the ICU in South Korea
And the South Korean government reports that it soon plans to relax the restrictive measures to release people from their apartments and to allow a public meeting.
The Prime Minister warned that even when the restrictions will be lifted, the country will not return immediately to his former life. It is expected that this will happen very gradually and very carefully. According to the latest data, South Korea was 10591 confirmed case of infection and 225 deaths. Recovered 7616 people.
