Hi everyone, how are you today? As there is something that I would like to share with anybody in the chat which I had taken a Covid-19 test 5 days ago while I was feeling unwell and then later sent my own Covid-19 test kit into a letterbox nearby a local post office, where I used to do my paper round. Until today after it has been 5 days which I received a notification on my phone and I found out that I’m being tested positive for the virus but I don’t have it not feeling affected by the following mild common symptoms of COVID from the internet. So how is it possible?

I didn’t have symptoms but a friend tested positive and we were recently together near others who were actually positive at the time (unknown to us) so I decided to get tested

You should request 'cycle threshold'. It will determine how they classify whether someone is positive or negative.

It's in your interest to know how a PCR test works.
