Two patients in China who recovered from Covid 19 months ago tested positive for the coronavirus again, and worried about the virus’ ability to sit and reappear in people who had previously infected it.

A 68-year-old woman in the central Chinese province of Hubei, where the new coronavirus first appeared in December, tested positive on Sunday, six months after she was diagnosed with Covid-19 and recovered. Another man revealed that he contracted the disease in April after returning from abroad on Monday tested positive in Shanghai, but showed no symptoms.
