Cycle threshold ..low the number more the viral load and individual is highly infectectius for others not related to severity of Covid 19 .

What could be lowest no of CT & highest no of CT.? Is lowest no may be 1(one) - Highly Infections for others.? Plz remove my confusion. Thanks for response.

CT-Cycle threshold... Technically CT stands for the number of cycles of reverse transcriptase taken to make the proposed RNA(Covid) detectible Well we can't use this for sure as the criteria for finding the susceptible or vulnerability Since,it depends on the body. Just like children having High Ct value but showing less to no symptoms but Old having low Ct value showing variable signs....

Dear Altaf : U mean perhaps Low CT value (more infections for others) but self showing less no of symptoms eg.in Children . Old having high CT value (less infections for others) but may show himself variable sign & symptoms.
