CDC Director Rochelle Walensky jolted America after she made a comment about PCR testing.
Walensky said that CDC guidelines don’t require testing at the end of isolation because PCR tests continue to be positive up to 12 weeks after infection.
She dropped the bomb explaining that “people in isolation for a very long time if we were relying on PCRs.”
“We do know that the most sensitive test you can do is a PCR test,” Walensky said. “So if you have symptoms and you have a negative antigen test, we do ask you to go and get a PCR to make sure those symptoms are not attributable to COVID.”
