Is it really possible to test positive twice???

Edited , 3 users are following.

i tested positive for covid in late March and was released after testing negative nearly 3 months later. Then yesterday I tested positive AGAIN. Is that even possible? Testing positive twice in one year?? I feel as if the second test was a false positive. Anyone know anything about that?

    it could be related to faulty testing because that does happen. They still don’t know everything about this virus. They don’t know if once you’ve had it whether you’re immune from getting Covid again or not. so either one of those could have happened.

    you could get retested. Are you having any symptoms of Covid? There are so many unknowns right now. Hopefully in the near future there will be more definite answers.

    Most scientists say that people who have had Covid-19 gain some immunity to the virus that causes it. What they don’t know is whether that protection lasts a few months, a few years or a lifetime. Resent research studies have shown that viral fragments can circulate even after an individual is symptom-free. That doesn’t mean that people are still sick or infectious.
