We are now learning that apart from the SARS-CoV-2 which has brought the world to its knees, there are other coronaviruses as well, which are however, highly seasonal. What studies have shownFrom these seasonal coronaviruses, researchers have studied four species which had been present in the last 35 years and in all of them, there are chances of reinfection happening, and it happened a year after the first time. While studies are still going fo
r finding a long-term immunity for the current virus, this bit of information is not the good news that we have been waiting for. The spikes were interpreted as reinfections, and in all the four coronaviruses, named – HCoV-NL63, HCoV-229E, HCoV-OC43, and HCoV-HKU1 – had infected each patient from three to seventeen times. Judging by the 35-year study, the researchers are saying that reinfection may be a common feature of all human coronaviruses.
