Israeli Dies After Contracting COVID-19 For 2nd Time

An Israeli man was diagnosed with COVID-19 and passed away months after recovering from the virus the first time, Kan News reported on Wednesday night.

Israeli health officials are investigating whether the man possibly contracted a new strain of the coronavirus or is the first Israeli to die from a coronavirus reinfection.

The 74-year-old resident of a nursing home first contracted the coronavirus in August and was hospitalized in Beilinson Hospital in Petach Tikva in serious condition. He recovered and was subsequently tested for the coronavirus three times with all of them returning negative.

Recently, he became ill and was hospitalized in Sheba Hospital, where he was tested for COVID-19 and confirmed positive, passing away due to the virus this week.

According to news reports, Israel has recorded 81 cases of people being reinfected with the coronavirus.

  1. this headline is fake YWN please read this article
    this story is not confirmed headlines like this cause the spread of disinformation the following is a new york times headline “Immunity to the Coronavirus May Last Years, New Data Hint” the article says “Eight months after infection, most people who have recovered still have enough immune cells to fend off the virus and prevent illness, the new data show. A slow rate of decline in the short term suggests, happily, that these cells may persist in the body for a very, very long time to come.”
    when people read an article like this they think antibodies don’t do anything. if that’s the case how is covid ever going to end because all a vaccine does is create antibodies? YWN please be more careful about what you publish especially what you write in headlines

  2. @YWN can you publish a correction saying that this story is not confirmed I have already heard people using this as an example that antibodies don’t work
