I am seeing different opinion and views on this topic. Viral load clearance takes 7-14 days... so I need to know about this subject... please opine generously... thanking in advance.

A recent study which got published in CHEST Journal stats that *Patient with covid-19 shed virus from sputum longer than the nasopharyngeal specimen (varies from 24-40 days) *elderly age was an independent risk factor for prolonged shedding time. Ideally they have to be isolated for atleast 6-7 weeks but its practically not posaible. Since the upper airway viral shedding clears after 2-3weeks,we can isolate covid positive patients for 3weeks.
