How long does the immunity inferred from COVID-19 infection last? What are the chances of contracting the virus again? How likely is reinfection with a new strain? What will be the severity of a probable reinfection? When will herd immunity against COVID-19 set in? Queries of such nature are puzzling not just the general population, but are also posing a formidable challenge to scientists and epidemiologists.
