We describe the case of a 63-year-old man who is reported to have the first confirmed case of COVID-19 reinfection in Campania Region, Italy. We found that the two episodes were caused by virus strains with clearly different genome sequences. The patient, a retired nurse, had a very low level of antibodies IgG directed against the spike protein 14 days after his first Pfizer/BioNTek vaccine shot.

Abstract

We describe the case of a 63-year-old man who is reported to have the first confirmed case of COVID-19 reinfection in Campania Region, Italy. We found that the two episodes were caused by virus strains with clearly different genome sequences. The patient, a retired nurse, had a very low level of antibodies IgG directed against the spike protein 14 days after his first Pfizer/BioNTek vaccine shot.
