Christian Bermea from Houston, Texas has tested positive for coronavirus three times in two months.
The 26-year-old told Fox 6 Now he was first diagnosed on March 19, before going on to test positive two more times.
Bernea said while his symptoms are not as severe as they were two months ago, he is still suffering and remains in self-isolation.
He told Fox 6 Now the “virus isn’t just a physical process, it’s a mental one, too….I’m scared because there’s still a virus inside me”.
Dr Sandberg, from Kelsey-Seybold Clinic, told the channel a postive diagnosis three times “means you have part of the genetic code in your body”.
Bermea said he plans to do another test later this week.
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), the speed of recovery from coronavirus is dependant on the severity of symptoms and treatment, and can take up to six weeks.
