COVID-19 could return for a 2 and 3rd death wave , as of many do get better for ones who get better they could come down with it again?
many may have recovered from it but what makes us think that it could not just hit us again and again making a end less wave of beyond sick

No one knows with Covid-19. No one knows how long or how well the anti-bodies in your system last after one recovers from the virus. In most cases, they last a long time, even a lifetime. However, Covid-19 is a different strain, and the research/results are not in on how long anti-bodies last.
Since no one really knows, there are warnings that there could be a second wave, but that is theory right now, not fact.

The way these viruses work, one you get them (and get over them) you're immune. Your blood has 'antibodies' that will kill that particular virus so you can't get it again.
In fact there's an idea being talked about to have people who've recovered from the virus donate blood to give to others who are infected.
One of the tests for the virus is a test to find these antibodies. And what they're finding is that thousands of Americans had the virus and got over it without every knowing that they had it. So there might be a decision to ask people to come in for blood tests so those with antibodies can give blood.

No one knows. This is too new. What we know from previous viruses is that some immunity is built, but not total. Think of it this way- a cold comes from a virus. You do get more immunity from infection as you get older and have had more colds, but the cold virus mutates, and anyone can get a cold.

It's going to come back another time but there will be a vaccine by then and most of us will be immune. Sars just died and so can this.
