Woman Tests Positive For Covid-19 8 Times

Sarah Laurence Cote has the nurses at the testing facility in Quebec rooting for her to get a negative Covid-19 test, as she has received 8 positive tests since March of 2020.


 Because of this, 20 year old Cote has had to do her nursing classes online and needed to be in full lockdown, although she has had no symptoms since mid-May. Cote believes she was infected in the first weeks of the pandemic, and has had it ever since. “The resident who I think gave it to me passed away, it’s very sad,” Cote says.


 She lost the ability to work in the senior homes she was employed at also. Infectious disease experts believe that the viral particles in her tests are likely dead or inactive, but you can never be too careful. She has been contacted by others in a similar situation, and said “It feels good to know i’m not alone.”


This goes to show how little we know about the pandemic, and that this most likely is a completely different situation  than some others, because Cote likely had the virus consistently for the period of time she was testing positive for, but it is not for sure that even if you have contracted the virus once, you are safe, and until further research is conducted, you are just as susceptible to getting it again, according to the Center for Disease Control.
