When do people test positive?!
I'm new to this forum and I posted a question a few hours ago. So, sorry if I'm vreaking a rule of some sort by posting twice. I just wanna know when does the average healthy person test positive? Is it within days, weeks or months? Does it really take 3 months to test positive?

Most people test positive by 4 weeks (over 80%) at 6 weeks it is (90something%) 8 weeks (is like 98%) and 3 months is conclusive. So at 3 months everyone will test positive.

Well if 90-something % are positive by 6 weeks then your looking at under 10%. And the Dr's on this site have not seen anyone turn positive after 6 weeks in several years. So 6 weeks is very encouraging but 3 months is conclusive.
