Covid twice in 90 days?

Does anyone have data on how likely we are to have Covid again in a short time frame? We had Covid three months ago and I want to know what the odds are for us to have it again.

I have known a few people to get it 6 weeks after. Depends on what strain you had and what’s about now. Sorry to say.

A covid test (LFT) can test positively up to 90 days after symptoms begin, so it is difficult to tell if a new strain occurs during this time

I tested positive mid January, then March, and again yesterday. So definitely possible, yes!

I don’t think this is right. An LFT should test negative a few days after you are positive. PCRs are the ones which can test positive up to 90 days later but I don’t think anyone is really having PCRs now.

I was testing positive after my March bout of covid for over three weeks.

When we had it last summer, DH was still testing positive almost two months later!

I'm currently on my sixth infection and they have all been very definitely separate ones, with separate symptoms (apart from one asymptomatic infection).

I have had friends and family catch it twice in three months (regularly testing so definitely two separate infections).

Sorry I don’t know the data but not that rare nor the norm from my limited sample size!

How awful. I hope you have had it mildly each time and that it isn’t too bad this time around.

My daughter had it twice within 3 months. Definitely two separate cases as when she had it you had to test negative in order to come out of isolation and she tested negative on day 10 but then got it again just under 3 months later
The first time she had it she was quite unwell. No appetite very very tired and bad headaches. She literally lay in her bed for the first 5 days which is not like her at all
The second time it was very mild and if we hadn't have tested we'd have thought she had a mild cold

No no one can really answer but I'd like to know too as last had it in March and attended an event last week where half the people there have now gone down with it.

I have had it twice within 3 months - tested positive again 84 days after the first infection. The first round seemed quite mild and I didn't really notice I was ill, it was a fluke that I even did a LFT. This time round I feel a lot worse. Head all fuzzy, bunged up nose, sore throat and feel tired. Also had a bit of a temperature at the start. And here was me hoping that getting round one of covid out of the way would mean I could hopefully avoid it for a while after building up some immunity having also had the 3 vaccines. So annoying.
