Dr. Imran Ali, a physician fellow at UConn Health, answers some of your questions sent in to us through Facebook.

Below are some of the questions. Watch the video above for Dr. Ali’s answers.

Sam: Can a person contract the virus more than once?

Kathy: What is the accuracy and reliability of various test methods and sampling procedures like antigen vs. antibody. What does it mean when you receive false negatives vs. false positives?
