Yes, but it isn't worth anything in the sense of diagnosis, anyway you try to frame it. Test can be reactive, but that doesn't mean the person is sick and spreading the disease. And from what I understand the crucial point for the above is that this narrowing still excludes otherwise false positives which started the whole panic. So it's unfair to use a narrow band if the test manufacturers are pre-setting other widely used tests to everything up to 35 or 40 ct, which in organizational structures and media create a sense of emergency. If for sequencing you don't use the samples which would produce a positive result outside of vaccination evaluation, isn't that bending the diagnostic criteria?That seems correct. So it does not seem like they changed diagnostic criteria.
