Is there a single documented case of severe COVID-19 (reinfection) in a patient having fully recovered from COVID-19?

For the purposes of this question, I'm excluding people with an immune disease, such as HIV. Further, extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence, so both COVID-19 cases should have positive antibody and PCR tests.

  • The only acceptable answer to this question will be "yes" which makes it kind of a strawman question.

  • @CareyGregory You all buried my answer that relied on the rarity of (severe) COVID-19 reinfections. There were probably ~5M severe COVID-19 cases in the US alone (based on 0.5M deaths). If you disagree so much with my answer, you should be able to find one thoroughly documented reinfection.

    I don't really have a strong opinion on your answer and didn't downvote it, so I didn't bury anything. My comment above is just to point out a problem with this question that I think you can improve. Nobody can prove a negative, so this question will never have an acceptable answer until such a case is found. That doesn't seem like a very useful question.

    @CareyGregory You are the only one who criticized my answer, and your criticism was totally unfair too, seeing as you are concerned about being unable to find a single severe COVID-19 reinfection.

  • I'm sorry you feel offended but your answer has 3 downvotes, none of which are mine. What you see as criticism was me trying to keep your answer from being deleted. I'm not concerned about whether there's a single case or not.
