Asahi front-paged a finding that at least 35 COVID-19 patients nationwide who had previously recovered from the coronavirus tested positive again. One patient reportedly tested positive almost a month after being declared free of the virus through PCR testing. According to the daily, 32 of the 35 “reactivated” patients had shown fever or other symptoms. The National Institute of Infectious Diseases are reportedly investigating the cause of their apparent relapses. Mainichi carried a similar story, saying it has learned of at least 37 cases of reactivation of the virus in 17 prefectures.
