Eminent MIT Scientists Defend Controversial SARS-CoV-2 Genome Integration Results

Scientists investigate the mystery underlying prolonged and recurrent SARS-CoV-2 positive PCR tests in patients, weeks or months after recovery from an infection. In a much-debated study, MIT investigators demonstrate non-infectious pieces of the virus’ RNA genome can be reverse transcribed into DNA and integrated into human genomic DNA and later transcribed as chimeric human-virus transcripts.
