WHO is investigating reports of recovered COVID patients testing positive againĀ | Reuters

The World Health Organization (WHO) said on Saturday that it was looking into reports of some COVID-19 patients testing positive again after initially testing negative for the disease while being considered for discharge. According to the WHOā€™s guidelines on clinical management, a patient can be discharged from hospital after two consecutive negative results in a clinically recovered patient at least 24 hours apart. Based on current studies, there is a period of about two weeks between the onset of symptoms and clinical recovery of patients with mild COVID-19 disease. ā€œAs COVID-19 is a new disease, we need more epidemiological data to draw any conclusions of virus shedding profile,ā€ the WHO said.Ā The number of deaths linked to the novel coronavirus reached 100,000 on Friday, as reported cases passed 1.6 million, according to a Reuters tally.
