Has anyone reviewed this article yet? Perhaps I missed it.

"No study detected live virus beyond day 9 of illness, despite persistently high viral loads."

Does this mean we can stop isolating patients in the ICU? Can we send their family in to the bedside? Are all those pulmonary COVID patients in my ER not infectious? Can we intubate patients without fear of anyone in the room being infected?

I am not an academic but Full time ER doctor and also medical director

Sure does suggest that to me...these patients are in the ICU are there well after that stopped being infectious and there are inflammation hell, not viral hell.
