“In this study, we report the first documented case of reinfection with the newly emerging P.1 lineage in a 29-years-old individual from Amazonas, a Brazilian state that was severely hit by COVID-19 at the first epidemic wave between March and July, and is currently facing a spiraling surge of deaths since November 2020. The current case report here raises questions about the role of reinfections caused by this new VOC in the Amazonas’s second epidemic wave.”
