Figure 1

Comparison of saliva and urine viral loads per mL across all specimens collected in longitudinal follow up. Circles are only plotted for children who were shedding; negative results (i.e., viral loads below the limit of detection) are not plotted. Blue circles represent saliva results, and yellow circles represent urine results. Shedding prevalences and viral loads are not directly comparable because the two specimen types had different PCR limits of detection, due to their different collection formats.
