Antibodies for vaccinated with/without natural infection
Quote:Out of 155 American patients having undergone a PCR-based control subsequent to an initial positive finding, 88% remained positive 1 to 5 days later, and 56% out of the 105 patients tested afterwards remained positive at 21–25 days [6]. Median PCR negativation time in the 56 patients of the Chinese series by Xiao et al. was 24 days [7]. In Wuhan, 36/378 (9.5%) of patients having tested positive remained positive 30 days later, and in some cases their positivity lasted as long as 83 days [8]. The more severe the clinical presentation, the longer the duration of positivity, with a median of 31 days in a Chinese study involving 41 serious cases [9]. In a Singaporean study, 32% out of 766 COVID19 patients still remained positive at D21, 22% at D28 and 5% at D33

As a reminder, initially the CDC recommended a negative test to show one is over the disease. Then they switched to 10 days after symptom onset, presumably partly because of continued positive tests.
