The man who tested positive for Covid 43 times – BBC News

Scientists are studying the case of a man in Bristol, UK, who is recovering after having Covid for nearly 300 days – longer than anyone else recorded in the world.

72-year-old Dave Smith, spent the last 10 months with an active coronavirus infection, and visited hospital seven times.

His immune system was vulnerable to the virus after a leukaemia diagnosis and chemotherapy treatment.

Dave was eventually treated with a new mixture of anti-viral drugs provided by the US company Regeneron.

Now scientists at the University of Bristol are studying Dave’s case to try and understand how Covid acts and mutates within the body.
