Over-65s more likely to be reinfected with Covid, finds study

The vast majority of people who have had coronavirus will avoid catching it again for at least six months, with older people the most likely to report a second bout of the disease, a study found.

Researchers studying records from Denmark’s Covid-19 testing programme found that the elderly were at a greater risk of catching Covid twice while for younger people reinfection was “rare”.

The findings mirror health outcomes across the population, with older people more likely to fall seriously ill and die from the illness.
