It’s possible that you had the virus, but that: “you can remain positive in pcr for a very long time but not necessarily contagious,” says koentgen.
‘not detected’ doesn’t mean it’s not there.
Covid test not detected negative. • a negative antigen test does not definitively rule out infection with the virus. Even though your test right now says the virus was “not detected”, it is possible that you could test positive later. Enhanced testing at present, if you.
The results will show as either positive or not detected. If you test negative but still have symptoms you should stay home until these resolve. • you are likely not infected, but you still.
• the virus was not detected. You might not be swabbing thoroughly enough, or you could have a dodgy test kit. This could be for many different reasons, such as you were tested early in your.
My concern is a result of not detected, does anyone know if. The reference range is used to compare your test result to the normal. Adalja advised, “if it’s negative, you still need to figure out what you’re sick with.
• cdc recommends confirming negative antigen test results with a pcr test especially if you It is just a question of semantics, but it means the same as negative, and is a more precise way of giving the result, in medical parlance. This means that the virus was not found in your sample.
It may be covid and might need a different type of test, or it could be some other infection.” The pcr test will pick up evidence of covid at much lower levels. Viral rna is not detected in the sample.
There are several reasons why your negative lft might be wrong: Many coronavirus test results already say “detected” or “not detected” as their default readout, a distinction that several experts call. My test result says “not detected”.
