what do you think about the pcr rna test? they say it is good after 9 to 11 days but very after 3 weeks. i know that it can give false positve but if it give a negative you are fine. is this true or not?they say it is 99 percent accurate after 3 weeks if negative. trying to see if it is true

you never had a risk in the first place you should believe you test results

you can look it up online just like everyone else the problem is it won't matter because you are going to retest anyway until you finally believe your results

From what i have read, the tests are not accurate until 28 days after possible exposure. There is a lot of information out there on PCR testing, including false negative and positives. As far as accuracy, they are indeed very accurate. They still suggest that you test at 3 months by an antibody test to confirm pcr tests. Good Luck.
