People infected with the coronavirus will most likely not be able to get sick again in at least six months, researchers at Oxford believe.

The researchers have come to this result as a part of a broad study on the possibility of re-infection after hearing from health professionals that new infection is very unusual.

“We can be pretty sure, at least in the short term, that most people who get COVID-19 will not get it again,” professor David Eyre, one of the researchers behind the study, noted. 

He believes the result is good news.

However, the researchers emphasize that they do not have enough data to say anything about how likely a new infection is beyond six months.
