According to him, a person can get sick with COVID-19 again if the immunity was very weak in the first case of the disease. This can also be the case with an asymptomatic course of the disease.

Altstein in an interview with radio Sputnik clarified that after the first illness, the human body can strengthen the barrier between itself and SARS-CoV-2, but sometimes this does not happen.

The virologist added that with a recurrence of the disease, the form of the course of the disease may become more severe, therefore, those who have recovered from COVID-19 should take precautions on an equal footing with everyone.

As reported by IA REGNUM, earlier Altstein said that the course of the coronavirus pandemic will depend on people's compliance with sanitary measures and the introduction of vaccines into circulation, and by the end of spring - early summer of 2021, the pandemic may decline.

According to him, in the coming winter "a special decrease in the incidence rate is unlikely," since the cold season is a favorable environment for the spread of infections.

According to a study by American and British scientists, the virus enters the cavity of the salivary glands, where it reproduces. In addition, after swallowing saliva, the coronavirus immediately enters the gastrointestinal tract. In this case, saliva becomes a key source of transmission of coronavirus - when coughing, sneezing or talking.

Note, according to the latest data, a total of 1,693,454 cases of coronavirus infection were detected in Russia. From complications caused by COVID-19, 29,217 people died. 1,266,931 people recovered. In total, more than 62.4 million tests were carried out.
