COVID-19 REINFECTIONS & BREAKTHROUGH INFECTIONS
COVID-19 Reinfection Tracker
The COVID-19 Reinfection tracker compiles information and evidence on COVID-19 reinfections from across the world and from India in a publicly accessible resource to aid clinicians, researchers and policy-makers providing them a curated and much needed evidence on re-infections.
A number of documents released in response to the COVID-19 pandemic have cited the SARS-CoV-2 re-infections reported from our studies.
Genomics of COVID-19 Reinfections and Vaccine Breakthrough Infections
Re-infection of SARS-CoV-2 is a rare entity. There have been only a few reports of SARS-CoV-2 re-infection reported from across the world. It is widely believed that genetic variants in the SARS-CoV-2 genome are responsible for re-infection. No data is yet available on host factors responsible for re-infection, though some evidence points to the key role of germinal centre development and re-infection, suggesting a potential subtle primary or secondary immunodeficiency.
If you know of a case of reinfection, please let us know. While non-clinicians could suggest a case, we would need a clinician to formally refer the case to us.
