Positive after recovering from covid

I was tested covid positive, had symptoms flu, sore throat cough, fever all. I recovered after 7 days quarantine period, no symptoms already. i did the rapid test - it is still positive. Do i need to continue quarantine? Will i infect others if I go out since the rapid test says positive? Thank you!

Hello and Good Afternoon.
Thank you for your question.
Based on questions,I understand that you are worried about your problems.I will try to help you out.

The person who just recovered from Covid may still got positive result due to presence of virus fragments in our body and it has been shown that after 7 days the infectivity rate is very low to none.Thus,you no need to quarantine and you will not infect others as well. However,you are encouraged to take the following precautions:

  • Wash hands with soap and water.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Stay away from sick people especially those who show symptoms of COVID-19 infection
  • Avoid visiting crowded areas
  • Make sure your mouth and nose are covered with a tissue when coughing or sneezing.
