There has been an increasing number of issues regarding the patients of COVID-19 who got infected again for the second time. Horrifyingly, these cases would usually be showing a lot more severe symptoms. This is what happened to a man who lives in The United States of America after he got reinfected with COVID-19.

It has been confirmed by the scientists that a particular 25-year-old man who originally from Nevada, US was, unfortunately, got infected with COVID-19 twice in his lifetime. Both of the COVID-19 infections occurred about 6 weeks apart from each other. The male patient was first tested positive with COVID-19 in the month of April, but then later recovered and has been tested negative in the early month of May.

However, at the end of May, this man has gone to an urgent care center after he experienced shortness of breath and then was hospitalized with oxygen support. The study wrote, “The second infection of COVID-19 was symptomatically more severe than the first time around”. Fortunately, the man survived his second frightening ordeal with COVID-19.

Several types of research have been done to study the differences between the first infection and also the second infection and these are the obtained results:

  1. Very high doses of the coronavirus might have caused the second infection of the virus and also produced a more severe disease.
  2. The reinfection was highly caused by a virulent version of the virus that has been undergone mutation.
  3. A mechanism in the human body that is known as the antibody-dependent enhancement is actually making the infections worse for a human beings.

Woman Shares 12-Month Trial of Spider Bite Turns Into A ‘Crater’

Published

on

Recently, a woman has shared the effects of a bite from a spider known as the ‘Brown Recluse Spider’ on social media. Injuries from the spider bite have caused the victim’s skin to have holes as a result of the infection.

The effects of the bite started from a red lump and then the woman’s skin had holes with black wounds, this condition occurred after a few weeks of being bitten by the spider.

The scars from the spider bite are still visible even after a year after the bite.

The woman also uploaded a picture of the ‘Brown Recluse Spider’. A friend of the victim shared the story on Reddit.

“He saw a doctor within 45 minutes after being bitten”.

“14 days of antibiotics, three times a day. Daily treatment for the first two weeks and once a week since”.

“The spider that bit him was caught and put in a plastic zip to be shown to the doctor”.

It takes 12 months of medical treatment to treat a bite because the soft tissue damage caused by Brown Recluse spiders can take months to heal. Brown Recluse spiders are usually not known as aggressive. Although bites rarely cause death, they can cause significant “soft tissue destruction” that takes months to heal.

This species is usually found only in South and Central America and usually grows to a length of between 6 and 20 mm (0.2 and 0.8 inches) – but they can grow larger. These spiders are also said to be the second most venomous spider in America.
