2 ships stuck with positive test: bulk carrier in Ningbo, reefer in Faroe islands

Crazy testing in China
Bulk carrier BUNUN GLORY arrived at Ningbo China on Jul 26, from Japan. 19 crew were tested, 4 were found to be test positive. There was another type of test taken, which found, that 5 other crew though not exactly infected, may be infected, so together with other 4, they’ve been taken to hospital, though to a different one. The rest of the crew remain on board. Ship’s under quarantine, all crew, including infected, not infected but probably infected, and not infected / probably infected, are healthy.
What does this new test mean, exactly? Not infected but probably infected? Healthy but infected or probably infected, subject to arrest (quarantine) anyway?
