I was tested positive for COVID-19 in the RT-PCR test before 18 days. Only one day, fever was above 100 degrees, and after that, there was no fever. I took a capsule Doxy-1 L-Dr forte twice daily for five days, and tablet Limcee 500 mg twice daily, and a tablet Cobadex Czs once daily. I did the RT-PCR test for the second time, eight days before, but the result was positive with a CT value of 31. I have no fever for the last 18 days, and my oxygen saturation is 98 to 99. I did not do a CT scan after that. I have high BP; if I take the tablet Zinconia, my BP increases. When shall I do the RT-PCR retest for COVID-19?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I understand your query. Do not worry.
Even after the illness is gone, the RT-PCR (reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction) test for COVID-19 will be positive for many people. It is due to the presence of remnant non-replicative virus particles, which are non-infective. RT-PCR test cannot differentiate between live and dead viruses, and it just picks up the presence of a virus that may be alive or dead.
Repeat the RT-PCR test after 10 days from now, and it will be negative. There is no need for any other investigations like CT (computed tomography) scan. Your RT-PCR and CT value of 31 indicates very few viral particles, probably due to the remnant non-replicative dead virus particles.
All these will help to repair your body damages caused by the virus.
Stay stress-free and stay hydrated. Take care.
