Gauteng General Practitioners’ Collaboration said people who had Covid-19 could still test positive for more than seven weeks despite them not being infectious anymore.

A group of more than 170 doctors have come together to share their knowledge on the virus.

According to the member of the Gauteng GPs’ Collaboration, Dr Dan Israel, people who had been in isolation for 14-days after testing positive do not need to be retested.

“When you repeat the testing, that testing can remain positive for six weeks or seven weeks and we even think beyond that even though the person is no longer infectious,” he said.

Dan Israel further revealed that after 14 days, in a normal case, the person is no longer infectious even when they still have a cough. So, there is no point in testing as it drains the limited resources that are available in this country.
