Coronavirus patient Carl Goldman is still testing positive for coronavirus about one month after contracting it, he told Anderson Cooper and Dr. Sanjay Gupta on Thursday during CNN’s Global Town Hall, “Coronavirus: Facts and Fears.”
Goldman said he last tested positive on Thursday, meaning he would remain in isolation in Omaha, Nebraska, for the coming days while health officials continue to take samples.
"I'm not the only one," he said. "There's a bunch of us from the Diamond Princess ... that are still in the same boat I'm in."
A retrospective study published Wednesday in medical journal The Lancet found that, among nearly 200 hospitalized coronavirus patients in China, viral shedding ranged from eight to 37 days among survivors, with a median of 20 days.
