As Donald Trump declared himself “immune” at his Florida rally, a new case study published in The Lancet revealed a 25-year-old man in Nevada was infected with coronavirus twice this year.
This is the first confirmed case of re-infection in the US. The two infections in this one patient occurred six weeks apart.
“You better vote for me Puerto Rico. You better vote for me,” Trump said.
Residents of Puerto Rico and other US territories are not entitled to vote for president in federal elections, though Puerto Ricans living in US states can vote for president (and Florida is home to hundreds of thousands of Puerto Ricans).
