COVID-19 Update 73 with Roger Seheult, MD. All coronavirus updates available free at https://www.medcram.com/courses/coronavirus-outbreak-symptoms-treatment

After several reports of COVID 19 reinfections or "re-positives" (a positive test, followed by a negative test, followed by a positive test), there have been lingering questions: Does a COVID-19 infection provide immunity? Is it possible to get the new coronavirus twice? New data from the Korean CDC sheds light on this question and Dr. Seheult illustrates how RT-PCR COVID-19 testing works and what may be happening when a person appears to be reinfected. Also, the first SARS-CoV-2 antigen test has been approved by the FDA. (This video was recorded on May 20, 2020)
