85 of those who contracted COVID-19 for the second time were part of known clusters and 28 of those listed as sporadic infections. 

“However, this number of identified cases of those being reinfected with COVID-19 only represents 0.02% of the case total from the outbreak.

“Several studies from the United Kingdom, United States and Denmark reported the rate of COVID-19 reinfection is very low, being less than 1% of the total number of cases,” he clarified. 

YB Adham added that studies showed that 77 to 83% of patients who have been infected with COVID-19 are immune to future infections.

He also reminded the public to always adhere to the Movement Control Order SOPs to avoid chances of getting infected or reinfected with COVID-19. 

Guys, COVID-19 is real! Please stay safe and take care of yourself and your loved ones!
