pcr testing 20:17 - Nov 19 with 1004 viewstextbackup

If you've had Covid, i'm reading if you do a PCR test shortly after you could produce a positive result, even though you arent transmitting it anymore?
Surely that causes no end of issues when travelling abroad, if a country requires a 72hr negative test result.
anyone had this issue?

Don't travel abroad just after you've had covid?

It also depends what "had covid" means. If you're producing a positive PCR result you've probably still got covid even if you're getting a negative LFT result.

I only as as it came up in conversation today with my mate who is getting married abroad.

A guest flying over has had it in last 3/4 weeks, and sweating on it a bit that the travel pcr test may come back positive (as their previous NHS one did)

i suppose if they gave a gentle rub round the front of the nostril as opposed to a dig right back into the brain, it might not show up, if it still there

would it? i've no idea what the pcr test looks for.

i know when, Mr X we'll call him, travelled back from a holiday in the summer, so he didnt get stuck over there, he just popped the swab in the tube and it came back negative, so couldnt be looking too hard for anything

Mrs SSB had a positive Oct test result 2 weeks after coming out of isolation. This was last December. It’s common apparently.

We have no village green, or a shop. It's very, very quiet. I can walk to the pub.

Had a PCR recently and the guidance said not to do one if you've had Covid in the last 6 weeks.

Possibly quite fooked, mate. If you get a positive result you get a positive result, unfortunately.

A lot of countries will take proof of having had Covid (and recovered) instead of a PCR for those reasons.

Yo don't need to take a PCR 90 days of having COVID.

Having had COVID, once you are past the quarantine period you are at less risk of transmitting COVID than those that are testing negative but haven't had COVID.

Additionally, there is something about (antibodies or something?) leading to a positive result whilst not actually contagious.

We are not taking lateral flows nor PCRs for 90 days after recovering. A colleague asked what about if we develop symptoms and we were told you should isolate again while symptomatic but you cannot test. With the new variant appearing to have a higher degree of asymptomatic expression, this is probably not great for controlling the spread but I guess it is the best that can be done.

I have a 'had covid' certificate having had it in September. Am currently abroad just for the weekend visiting family, but to get back to the UK I have to have a Day 2 Antigen Test; no away round it as you have to prove you've purchased one with a code they send you to put on the Passenger Locator Form. And despite me having a shed load of NHS Lateral Flow Tests at home, they aren't allowed to be used. The cynic in me wonders which government ministers are on the payroll of the 'official providers'!!
