I tested positive for covid using a rapid test a couple months ago but now I am experiencing Covid symptoms again. I am going to take another test (PCR this time) to see if I am somehow positive again. Has anyone heard of this? Can you test positive for Covid yet again in such a short period?

I have multiple friends who have been infected twice. I know one who was literally sick a month ago with Delta, and has Omicron now. So yes, it's not only possible, but becoming fairly common. Omicron has so many mutations to the spike protein and domain binding receptors that it's very efficient at reinfection from those who had a previous variant, especially if not vaccinated.

If you had delta and now got Omicron, yes. Easily.

New variant, antibodies from prior variant don’t necessarily protect you

You will likely test positive again, even if it is not a new bout of Covid. People have tested positive Covid for upto 3 months after having Covid because of the presence of antibodies.

Might also just be a cold or the flu. Yes, COVID is spreading like crazy right now, but there are other viruses that are also spreading like crazy right now. You would not believe the number of people posting on Facebook that they took 4 at home rapid tests and 3 PCRs across the course of a week and all are negative but they are sure they have COVID… 🤦‍♀️

funny

You can always get the disease again. Also. Do you have COVID symptoms or Omicron symptoms? I have enough positive tests that my doctor thinks I just have a common cold

I heard the headache is real with Omi… hope you feel better soon, OP.

Omicron is so different from prior strains that prior infection from prior strains isn't nearly as effective as say, an OG/alpha infection preventing Delta.

like

Also far less severe based on how it infects and replicates.

Currently on Covid for the 2nd time in 5 months after being Vaxed, Omicron is a whole different beast than Delta. Less severe, but Delta anti-bodies do nothing to protect against it

funny

Yep. My mom had covid twice! Thankfully kicked it’s butt both times!

Yuhp. I had delta after being double vaxed, then got omicron 2 months later, and now i got my booster.

Not necessarily “thanks to the vax”…

Yes, but only if you haven’t had your seventh booster.

Yep. It’s just another respiratory disease. Vaccines don’t prevent you from catching it. Just from the worst symptoms. It’s here to stay.

Yes this is common, especially with multiple strains
