not correct. The test is specific to COVID-19. False positives are very rare (but false negatives fairly common). And when someone tests positiev a second test is immediately done to conifrm. Odds of 2 sequential false positives are miniscule.

 

Now PCR can indeed pick up dead cells from prior COVID-19 infection, but as she is symptomatic that is not likely to be the case here.

 

could her symptoms come from another infection, not COVID ?

So either the 14 day quarantine is a load of BS or Thailand isn't as secure as they lead us to believe...  

That's the "Covid free Thailand" up the Suwanee !  She may have caught it from an untested Thai.

Increase quarantine ro 3 weeks

Unlike anywhere else in the world, Thailand covid cases seem to be much longer than the usual 4-5 days. So something does not add up, either testing is faulty *or* people are catching it inside Thailand, and because testing is mostly or solely done on those in quarantine, it is only finding positive case of those in quarantine, when it could easily be out in the general population.

Long Covid

They would nto be eager to announce this as COVID. It must be clear that it is.

 

The big question of course is where/how  she contacted it.

 

I mean, symptoms from an unrelated infection while tests detected a recent but cleared COVID infection

Highly unlikely given that she tested negative at least 3 times in the prior 3 weeks.

The Quarantine Procedure means that you are in the same group of people at the same location? or are there new arrivals coming during that 14 day period who can infect those who are about to leave?

exactly, someone infected could have arrived just before she left, I don't believe they are in groups in ASQ

Thailand is a nation of hypochondriacs and gossips. If there were cases, symptoms, hospitalisations, or deaths, you would hear about it.

The same way we're given the accurate figures for Thai road deaths??
