Youngsters have a common misunderstanding that the virus is generally only dangerous to the elderly. Portillo is one among them who misunderstood.
The 18-year-old, Wilber Portillo from Denver had quarantined for a month after testing positive for the virus. After he recovered, he thought he had developed immunity. However, within the second week, Portillo fell ill again. His condition worsened, and Portillo went to the doctor where he was diagnosed with a severe respiratory infection and tested positive again for COVID-19. Portillo died in his sleep the same night.
Scientists are still working to determine whether it is possible to get covid-19 for the second time, which can bring fatal results like what just happened with Portillo.
