Rebel Pepper Toon: Man Becomes First To Be Reinfected With Mutated COVID-19 Strain

In Hong Kong this week, a 33-year-old man with no underlying conditions became the first confirmed patient to be reinfected with a mutated strain of COVID-19.

He had been hospitalized on March 26 and recovered on April 14. He was asympotamic for his reinfection, which was discovered after he traveled from Spain and the UK.

The mutated virus has 4-5 more spikes that boosts infectivity and is more closely linked to samples collected in Switzerland and the UK from July to August.
