Most patients who’ve recovered from Covid-19 may still show positive for the virus through long-term rt-PCR tests, according to the Ministry of Health.

Although they are still detected to be positive, they do not have symptoms, do not fall sick or spread the disease to their immediate families.

Malay Mail also reported that repeated studies shows that virus failed to breed.

Due to the findings, the Ministry concluded that the positive results could be caused by dead viruses or virus fragments.

Dr Noor Hisham said the findings were similar in other countries, including in South Korea, China, Singapore and Germany.
