Amiran Gamkrelidze, head of the National Center for Disease Control, reports that after a relevant study, one case of reinfection in the country has been confirmed.
“One case of reinfection has been confirmed. The reinfection occurred after 2.5 – 3 months. This is not a new variant, but a mutant of the same variant,” Gamkrelidze said.
He also noted that the symptoms of the patient’s illness are assessed as “mild,” as it was during the patient’s first infection, and that the patient is not elderly.
