Can you get the COVID-19 coronavirus twice?

With scattered reports of recovered COVID-19 patients testing positive again, a lot of people are wondering if it’s possible to develop immunity at all. Chances are many people will develop some sort of immunity, but your immune system isn’t exactly straightforward, and the length and strength of that potential immunity may not be known for some time. This isn’t helped by inconsistent testing rates which have impacted the reliability of positive or negative tests in the first place. So your best bet is to keep social distancing for as long as you can.
