51 recovered coronavirus patients in South Korea test positive again after release from quarantine

Dozens of people who were diagnosed as recovered from coronavirus in South Korea have tested positive again for the virus after leaving quarantine, according to officials.

Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) said Monday 51 people from Daegu and the surrounding North Gyeongsang Province tested positive for COVID-19 a "relatively short time" after they were released.

The virus likely was reactivated, said KCDC Director-General Jeong Eun-kyeong, instead of the people being reinfected once they left, South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported.

    That is not the first time that has been reported, it happened in China and other places, They blamed it on bad tests then.

    But this is South Korea a place that has been touted by many as the model we should have followed in responding to to Covid 19....


    Scary times straight ahead.....until this report I wasn't too worried.....now I am!

    Why don't we wait a few days and see where this goes. Panicking over every news report is not solving anything.

    "10 percent of coronavirus patients had tested positive again after being discharged from the hospital.

    **** Wei, the president of Tongji Hospital where the first COVID-19 case was identified, told state broadcaster CCTV that those who tested positive did not have any symptoms and none of their close contacts had been infected."

    Why? In this country they are free to express themselves in many ways. It's the people who react to whats been written that are the problem.

    I am usually optimistic and think the news blows it out of proportion. However I think they're trying to cover this up. I think it's going to go sideways big time and I don't see it going away this year and I have zero Medical information it just seems common sense to me I don't see the numbers going down.

    I believed it when I first heard we're going to Peak in a couple of weeks and then this is going to all go away well it didn't peak in a couple of weeks it didn't peak in 4 weeks it didn't peak in 6 weeks it didn't Peek'n 8 weeks and I don't see it Peeking anytime soon

    I think it's peeked and we will see numbers going down. My big question is will it come back with a vengeance or fade away as immunity is developed or vaccines come into play.

    I'm also hoping this eliminates some the stranglehold the FDA has on new medicines.

    I'll be honest, I actually like the fact that there is a lot less traffic on the roads and any where I go.  I live in a an area where there's a lot of schools, I had to go get something at HD this morning, there is a  school zone on the way, normally there's lines of vehicles a mile long to drop off their kids at the front door.  I didn't see one vehicle near the school when I drove by.  Kind of a eerie feeling seeing no vehicles.

    I think the economic ramafications will be felt for at least a year or more.

    Health wise, untill a vaccine or some type of medication to minimize the effects of the virus. 

    I pray to God I am wrong.

    It has been 11 weeks since the first cases started showing up in the U.S.

    We did not hit 1000 cases until March 10th. Which is when I started hearing time lines. It was supposed to be15 days to stop the virus
    Cases kept climbing and now it is 30 days to slow the virus. I never heard anything other than sometime in April it would peak. 

    If you looked at Italy and Spain you would know we weren't close to peak cases. We will have over a million infected before this is over. 

    But I hope we have this behind us by the end of May or June. Time will tell

    First I heard was doctor Drew. He said he expected 100,000 nationwide cases and then level off. Well that didn't work

    Since the first known cases?
    It’s been in this country for month’s. 
     Think about it, from November 2019 to January 30th2020 an average of 5000 passengers a DAY were flying into just California airports from China and especially the Wuhan area. 
     Then add in the passenger traffic into NYC, Seattle and Chicago. 
    I was not joking when I said I had it back in December.

    It's Peking.  Get it?

    The story says it "reactivated".  So they were never over it and not immune yet.  That's my take away.  A non story.

    Could well be that the testing of recovered patients were testing positive on the developed antibodies, not on active virus.

    or maybe should have gone with immediate economic ramifications???

    Easy solution.  We need to shut down for May, June, July and August.  Well the virus may re-surge in the fall, so go ahead and shut down October, November and December.  We can have September.  Problem solved.  

    Joking aside, bad tests.  Clearly those patients had a false negative.

    Kind of a high price to pay for good traffic flow though.

    To all the "medical professionals" on here who are trying to simply pass this off as 'bad tests' in South Korea....please read the following....in laymen terms, some viruses have the ability to deactivate and then reactive.........this thing is SCARY!!!!

    Then any testing would mean very little, some people’s heads might be exploding about that Salty.
