On Instagram Mr Modi has given this information . He said that he was infected with Covid twice in two weeks and has “profound pneumonia” after which he has been hospitalised.
Modi tweeted on Friday “After 3 weeks in confinement with a double Covid in 2 weeks accompanied by influenza and deep pneumonia – and post trying several times to leave. Finally landed via air ambulance accompanied by two doctors and a superstar super-efficient son who did so much for me back in London. The flight was smooth. Unfortunately, still on 24/7 external oxygen. Thank u to all at vistajet for going the extra mile. I am extremely grateful to all. Love to all. Big hug.”
Through Instagram, Lalit Modi said he was brought from Mexico to London after three weeks of imprisonment. Dr Satyanarayana Mysore, HOD and consultant pulmonology, sleep physician, Manipal Hospital, Old Airport Road, Bangalore, elucidated that the structured definition of reinfection has moved from 120 days to 90 days.
Dr Mysore said “There was a small study done in Denmark where BA 1 and BA 2 sub-variants did cause reinfection even though it is very rare. Covid reinfection does not seem to be a big issue for a large number of people however, such reinfections within a span of two weeks are to be confirmed only after proper genomic sequencing. They are rare and should be carefully considered after serotyping and genomic sequencing. Usually, innate immune protection, that is, T cell immunity and anti-neutralising antibodies prevent the second subsequent infection, which helps in immediate recovery.”
