First possible U.S. case of Covid-19 reinfection in Nevada

A 25-year-old man, who was first tested positive for Covid-19 in mid-April, got sick again in late May after having tested negative earlier. The infection was more severe the second time, and he required oxygen support. He seems to be the first patient to be reinfected with a different strain of the virus.

The case has been reported in an online preprint which has not been peer-reviewed yet.
