A British study examines the activity of the virus

Updated test that detects activity rate

According to new research, one in 10 people may have clinically relevant levels of potentially contagious SARS-CoV-2 after a 10-day quarantine period.

The study, led by the University of Exeter and funded by Animal Free Research UK, used a newly modified test that can detect whether the virus is still active.

And according to what “Russia Today” reported, the researchers applied it to samples from 176 people in Exeter who tested positive in standard polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests.

The results, published in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases, found that 13% of patients still showed clinically relevant levels of virus after 10 days, meaning they were likely to remain infectious.

Some people have maintained these levels for up to 68 days, and researchers believe that this new test should be applied in places where people are at risk, to stop the spread of “Covid-19”.

Professor Lorna Harris, University of Exeter Medical School, led the study; She said: “While this is a relatively small study, our results indicate that a potentially active virus can sometimes persist for longer than 10 days, and could pose a potential risk of transmission beyond this period. There was nothing clinically noticeable about these people, which means we won’t be able to predict who they are.”

Conventional PCR tests work by testing for the presence of viral fragments; While they can tell if someone has had the virus recently, they cannot tell if it is still active and that the person is contagious.

However, the test used in the latest study only gives a positive result when the virus is active and capable of future transmission, and co-lead author Merlin Davies, from the University of Exeter Medical School said: “In some places, such as people returning to care homes after illness, it can be possible to That continued transmission after ten days poses a serious public health risk, and we may need to make sure that people in those places have a negative active virus test to make sure they are no longer contagious, and now we want to run larger trials to investigate this further.”

Animal Free Research UK chief executive Carla Owen said: “The University of Exeter team’s discovery is exciting and potentially very important, and once again, demonstrates how focusing exclusively on human biology during medical research can lead to more reliable and potentially more promising results. human and animal.”

“Pioneering animal-free action provides the best opportunity not only to defeat COVID-19, but also to find better treatments for all human diseases,” she added.
