Abstract

We present prolonged viral shedding in an immunocompromised HIV patient with a literature review of risk factors for prolonged viral shedding and its implications for isolation strategies. We explore the role of PCR-CT-value (cycle threshold) as an instrument for guiding isolation policies and the impact of HIV on Covid-19.
