. ‘Infection doesn’t protect you’: Getting COVID twice is more common as immunity wanes « JO LEE MAGAZINE

CP 24 – Reinfection of COVID-19 was considered unusual, but then the Omicron variant arrived. “Because Omicron is so different, previous infection doesn’t protect you,” Saskatchewan’s chief medical health officer, Dr. Saqib Shahab, said last week.

He said public health data suggests up to 10 per cent of infected Canadians who have recently had BA.2 – a sub-variant of Omicron – previously had BA.1 or a previous infection, like the Delta variant.

This aligns with recent studies done in England that suggest 10 per cent of reported cases are reinfections.
