Rapid Antigen tests false negatives

Recommended Posts

There is a lot said about catching Covid while on the ship, yet many researching the Rapid Antigen testing now say that the test will not detect the virus until it reaches a certain milestone in your system. Until it reaches that milestone you are able to transmit the virus to others. You may actually have Covid even though your test before boarding says you are negative.  it manifests itself within a few days after coming onboard. Rapid Antigen tests are the quickest and most accepted test by cruise lines, yet this may explain the upsurge in cases while on a ship. PCR tests will detect it in your system from the beginning, and are said to be the one most effective way. Perhaps, as a result, we may soon see a shift away from the Rapid Antigen test by the cruise lines.
