Can I become re-infected from COVID-19?

Scientists have identified two strains of the novel coronavirus causing infections, one more aggressive than the other, indicating that the disease has mutated at least once. In a new study published Chinese researchers suggest that after Covid-19 crossed into humans, the original strain evolved into a new type and both of these are now circulating. Although the body develops immunity to the virus if contracted, there is still possibility of falling ill from the other strain of virus.
