Is there any indication that people who contract it gain immunity or better resistance to it later?
No, they do not. Tons of people are getting it a second time, and they are even more likely to die when they do, as their bodies are no longer as strong as the first time and the mortality rate is even greater than the first time you get it.
Y'all need to take every possible precaution because this thing is a real b*tch.
One thing to note is that you're talking about some cases being infected twice in SOME WEEKS. This means they the body won the first time, but it also means it was tired, so it may be easier to get ill one more time. Nobody knows at this time what it will be after fully recovring and several month or years later, but for sure, you're in best form one year later than one week later
And another thing, when you have a great health, it happens that you win so fast againt the virus that you don't create the maximum of antibodies you could create by fighting more days, and then, you end up getting it back easier. It happens with varicella, some people won easily the first time, then they have higher chances to get shingles later than people who got a hard varicella.
The longer you fight the first time, the more antibodies you get in general.
There is also some report that the fact we are massively avoiding to be infected will make it harder to fight it again, because when population is 70% infected, it creates a mass barrier against a virus comeback, but when only 30% of the population get infected, it's easier for the virus to be strong again...
It's stronger than the flu, but when a big part of the population get the flu, everybody is fighting it better
