Coronavirus: when is it cured?

The number of Corona infections continues to increase worldwide. In Germany, the Virus has claimed relatively few casualties. In China, where there are the most cases, are yet four percent of the known Infected died. However, there are also positive messages. 89 percent of people who were officially infected, now healthy again.


These people are Corona-risk patients – and they are calling for: stay home!

But when one can speak of a cure? In different countries, different standards apply. For Germany, the Robert-Koch-Institute (RKI) has defined it strictly. Therefore a cure can be found, not earlier than ten days after the definite diagnosis. In addition, the patient may have had 48 hours of no fever, and 24 hours of no symptoms, such as coughing more. Overall, the patients must be 48 hours symptom free.

It is crucial, however, that two tests have to be on the Coronavirus in a 24-hour interval is negative. In the smears from the nasopharynx Covid-19 may not be so detectable. Only when these criteria are met, can be repealed according to the RKI Definition of measures for the isolation and patients to be discharged from the hospital.

In individual cases, these criteria may differ also, but only in close consultation with clinic, laboratory and public health Department. “The criteria were based on the findings from the consultant laboratory for corona viruses (in the Charité in Berlin, Anm. d. Red.) developed,” said a spokeswoman for the RKI, according to the “editors’ network Germany”.

Infections with Coronavirus are Multiple possible?

Currently, virologists assume that patients can develop an infection with Sars-CoV-2 immunity against the novel Coronavirus, and thus, at least for some time no reinfection is possible.

A case from Japan but it produces insecurity. There, at the end of February is to be a woman for a second Time a positive effect on the Virus they have been tested. “Multiple infections – this is not a question we can answer is currently,” said Lothar Wieler, Director of the Robert-Koch-Institute, during a press conference. The case could be an isolated case or the detection methods would not have used under the circumstances.
