The Ministry of Health plans to calculate the actual number of re-infections with coronavirus. This was announced by Health Minister Maksym Stepanov, Segodnya reports.

"There are already hundreds of such cases (cases of re-infection with Covid-19). Especially, people who fell ill at the beginning of the epidemic, their antibody titer starts to fade. It is usually that much harder for them to get through the disease for the second time. A lot of such cases tend to be fatal," Stepanov said.

The minister also noted that it was theoretically impossible to get infected with coronavirus for the third time at that point.
