What do you make of this? Is it likely that they should have had evidence of this by now?

I don't know tbh. One could make the point that if we knew for sure, we'd also have antibody tests, right? Or is there a slice of logic I'm missing there?

It has been proven in South Korea that you could get it more than once but rate of infection will be significantly lower

Well they can't intentionally infect recovered people with the coronavirus to check for immunity so I imagine the sample size isn't great

Has it actually been proven to be a repeat infection and not just false positive though?

Meh they've been conducting such trials for quite a while though. There was an interesting article on such things in last weeks Economist if memory serves.
Whilst the ethics of such trials are a bit...iffy... so long as the participants are fully informed and that, there shouldnt really be a problem.

Actually, I'm fairly sure they weren't sure about the reason. It could have been false positives or negative. The virus may have never left the body in the first place.

It mrans there is currently no evidence and people who have had the virus should not be complacent.

What it doesn't discount is that people who have had the virus may have immunity to a second bout. We just don't know at present.
