ABSTRACT

Presentation A 40-year-old healthcare worker (HCW) presented with cough, headache, sore throat, fatigue and myalgia seven months after primary infection with laboratory-confirmed severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Symptoms were milder and recovery was faster on the second episode. Diagnosis Reinfection with phylogenetically distinct SARS-CoV-2 was confirmed by whole-genome sequencing (WGS). Treatment Management involved symptomatic treatment and self-isolation. Discussion The incidence of SARS-CoV-2 reinfection is not well characterised. Infection control precautions may still be required in healthcare facilities, even in previously infected and possibly in vaccinated individuals while SARS-CoV-2 remains in circulation. Further research on the nature and duration of immunity is required to inform public health and infection control policy.
