PCR | Misinterpreting Results | Cycle Threshold Explained

PCR testing to diagnose COVID may be resulting in wrong diagnoses, unnecessary scares about #reinfection, and wasted resources.

This video explains why RT-PCR tests, which are the gold standard for diagnostic testing, may be hindering our fight against COVID-19; how, after seven months, we still aren’t doing testing right; and what experts believe needs to change.

Check out what a "Ct" is and why experts are calling for greater reporting of the Ct in results and changes to its threshold in laboratory protocols.
