I would agree about the feel, but if you do enough research about how viruses in general operate, mutate, develop resistance, you would have cause to appreciate the concern about re-infection. Since it is well known that the virus does mutate, cross-infection (a more appropriate term) is the concern of the epidemiologists and is making it more difficult to stay ahead of the mutations for treatment, even more so for a vaccine. The other reason of course, is inconsistancy with medications.

These are the identical concerns with some bacteria like strep and staph. Realize though that the virus' makeup is much smarter and faster mutating.

You (generic) could very easily wind up the next "what do I do now" on the body board as you have failed on the traditional treatments.

Trust me, I would be the first one back to barebacking if this weren't true.
