Unsettling Shocker; Coronavirus possibly "dormant" in those who have recovered, could reactivate soon after.

While Wisconsin Republican deniers like Rep. Robin Vos and Sen. Scott Fitzgerald forced their constituents to expose themselves to COVID-19 infection to gain an extra conservative seat on the State Supreme Court, a very ugly turn of events is rolling out in S. Korea.

Like the second half of a horror movie where you think you killed the monster, where surprise, you find out the monster is still alive...inside your body!

Bottom line; for those who had the infection and then appeared healthy again, thought to be cured, are testing positive again. The virus may have gone dormant. There is one posibility the testing may be flawed:
Paul Hunter, an infectious diseases professor at the University of East Anglia, told MailOnline that the cases were far more likely to be “reactivations” — or even just a sign of current testing being flawed. “Personally, I think the most likely explanation is that the clearance samples were false negative,” Hunter told the site.

At least 51 patients diagnosed as having fully recovered from the coronavirus in South Korea have tested positive a second time after leaving quarantine, according to officials.

For now, the KCDC’s director-general, Jeong Eun-kyeong, believes it is likely the infection was re-activated after remaining dormant in the patients, as opposed to them being reinfected, the report said.

Either way, it strengthens fears that the contagion remains a hidden danger even after it appears to have gone — with whistleblowing Chinese doctors previously warning it is even deadlier the second time.

Doctors on the front lines in Wuhan — where the virus first originated — previously said as many as 10% of those assumed to have recovered had tested positive again.
