13-year-old Vaccinated

India’s 1st Covid patient tests positive again

The Thrissur woman is 22 years old and is waiting to resume her studies at a medical college in Wuhan. She has taken one shot of a vaccine.

A woman from Kerala who was studying in Wuhan and was infected with the Sars-CoV-2 virus in the early days of the pandemic in 2020 has tested positive for Covid-19 again, a health official said on Tuesday, but with no symptoms.

The woman, officially recognised as India’s first Covid-19 infected person, took an RT-PCR test in order to travel to Delhi. She tested negative on a rapid antigen test, widely regarded as reflective of contagiousness, and none of her family members appear to have been infected.

“She has tested positive and is under quarantine at her home. None of the family members has tested positive so far,” said Thrissur district medical officer KJ Reena. She said re-infection is nothing new, and some of the health workers have been infected twice.

The Thrissur woman is 22 years old and is waiting to resume her studies at a medical college in Wuhan. She has taken one shot of a vaccine.

The woman has been unable to return to China as Beijing is yet to allow Indian students back into the country because of the pandemic.
