Some Coronavirus infected people in South Korea were reported re-infected. The state officials on Friday reported 91 patients considered cleared of the new coronavirus had tested positive again.

Jeong Eun-Kyeong, director of the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC), told a briefing that the virus may have been “reactivated” rather than the patients being re-infected.

 South Korean health officials said it remains unclear what is behind the trend, with epidemiological investigations still underway.

The possibility of people being re-infected with the virus is of international concern, as many countries are hoping that infected populations will develop sufficient immunity to prevent a resurgence of the pandemic.

The South Korean figure had risen to 51 of re-infection cases on Monday.
Nearly 7,000 South Koreans have been reported as recovered from COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus.
