The Bundesliga already has the first player to contract the coronavirus for the second time. This is the case of Edimilson Fernandes, a Mainz player, who suffered the illness in the summer and, according to his club, has now tested positive again. The Swiss international received the bad news last Friday, was immediately excluded from the call for the red lantern of the Bundesliga for Saturday's game against Eintracht Frankfurt (0-2) and is quarantined at home after being the first German elite footballer who is reinfected.

The course of the disease in August was already very strange for Fernandes. Despite showing no symptoms of any kind, her first negative test did not occur until five weeks after testing positive. Fernandes had a hard time and it took him a long time to get back into his football routine. After passing the virus, returning to training and regaining his level, Fernandes did not play a match with Mainz's elastic again until October 17, the date on which the Rhenish team fell 0-1 against Leverkusen. Now, he has to go through the same ordeal.

The case of Fernandes is causing a buzz in Germany considering that the midfielder is one of the very few people worldwide who contract the virus for the second time. According to the German magazine Pharmazeutische Zeitung, only 27 cases had been registered by mid-December. Mainz himself reported that it is still being studied whether the Fernandes positive is due to virulent remains from the first infection or, most likely after five months, it is a new infection. "It is not very feasible that they are particles of the virus from the first infection with so much time involved," explained virologist Bodo Plachter in Bild.
