In COVID-19 Disease, a POSITIVE rtPCR test means you have current infection.
By the 5th day of infection onwards, the immune system produce antibodies (IgM and IgG) that destroy the Corona virus, so you no longer have the virus, therefore, a NEGATIVE test result.
The exactly same happened to that Spanish man and the Rabaul case.
If you went in to do antibody tests using RDT (antibody) kits, it will be positive to suggest past infection with development of natural immunity. You are then defended by the body and so unlikely to get COVID-19 again. And you are no longer infective to others.
Unlike HIV test that remains positive for good, Corona is different. Please understand and do not instill further fear and panic to people.
The Government, the SoE Controller, Health Minister, Health Department, and the COVID-Task Force are doing everything to protect. More details will be delivered by authorities soon.
This is only to provide clarity to those in a state of euphoria, hysteria and anoxia.
