The patient later died of Covid-19 pneumonia (pneumonia) and sepsis with multiple organ failure.” First the research network of WDR, NDR and “Süddeutscher Zeitung” reported on it. As the association continues to write, it is a 73-year-old man. Stefan Brockmann, who heads the health protection and epidemiology department at the state health office, told the German press agency that it was the first known death after a second infection in southwest Germany. “
The re is no evidence that he had any of the new virus variants,” said Brockmann.
The re are isolated cases in which the patients did not develop enough antibodies the first time.
According to the report by WDR, NDR and “Süddeutscher Zeitung”, this is probably only the third known death worldwide after a corona reinfection. In October, an 89-year-old Dutch woman died, but her immune system was weakened. In December, an Israeli newspaper reported that a 74-year-old resident of a nursing home there became infected again after surviving the initial infection in August and died, although he had tested negative three times in between.
