Researchers at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health in Bloomberg have established an average incubation period for coronavirus. According to them, it is 5,1 days.

According to Rospotrebnadzor, about 97,5% of people show symptoms of coronavirus within 11,5 days after infection. At the same time, for every ten thousand people placed in 14-day quarantine, there are about 101 people whose symptoms appeared after leaving it.

Health authorities around the world use 14-day quarantine. According to scientists, this is the most reasonable measure to prevent the spread of the virus. Accurate data on its incubation period will allow epidemiologists to better assess the likely dynamics of an outbreak, develop effective quarantine and other control measures.

The incubation period for the new strain is in the same range as the coronavirus, which caused a major outbreak in Hong Kong and southern China in 2002-2004.

In total, 19 people became ill with the COVID-367 coronavirus in Russia, 16 of them have already recovered, more than 52 thousand patients remain under surveillance.
