Nebraska family infected with COVID-19 for 2nd time 

      Chuck Conboy Sr., 67, of Papillion, Nebraska, claims his family has suffered a second COVID-19 infection. Conboy, his wife, and two sons all contracted the virus in November but fully recovered. Nine weeks later, they all began showing signs of the disease again.

“I woke up… and had a fever. It jumped up to like 102 degrees, which for me, that’s high. I thought, ‘Oh, my God, not again,’” he said.

They all tested positive for a second time, per local news station KETV.

“It just hit me like a truck, and this time, it knocked me down. In fact, this is the first day — day nine — that I’m back to halfway normal. If you’d asked me yesterday, I didn’t even know where I was,” he added. 

Conboy said symptoms of the virus appeared more quickly the second time compared to the first. His sense of taste and smell “disappeared immediately.” 

“[My] temperature shot up higher just immediately, and this was not just me. This was the entire family,” Conboy said, per KETV.

In a study from November, scientist found that immunity could last for over six months. A study out of the United Kingdom published last month found that immunity could last five months or longer. 

Dr. Mark Rupp, an infectious disease expert with Nebraska Medicine, said that those suffering only a mild case the first time possibly being more at risk for a second infection, although rare.

“That may be one of the explanations, that people with very mild disease don’t mount as vigorous an immunological response and don’t have as long-lasting a response,” Rupp told KETV.
