Coronavirus has infected more than 6 million people in the world  and lakhs and lakhs of people have lost their lives. However, a huge chunk of population has also been healed and cured with the right treatment and outlook towards the pandemic. However, there still exists a debate whether those who have had COVID-19 can be carriers too? CDC says that there is no probability that these people expose risk to those who have not suffered from this viral illness.  

As per experts, Dr Praveen Gupta, Neurologist at Fortis Hospital says, “Corona virus pandemic has captured the whole world and has led to panic all over. People are scared that can they still get re infected by coronavirus or after recovery can still be of danger to their loved. Few samples from other countries were positive even after getting a negative report. According to some research, people who again displayed positive samples, had genetic virus but it is not that strong that it can replicate in the body or further transmission. They test results may come out to be positive but they may not infect others. Also, it is a known fact that the plasma of the recovered COVID-19 can be used as an antidote to cure others . So the satisfactory answer according the research is that recovered patients do not spread this virus but still the research is in process to further authenticate this statement.”
