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