What is the Incubation Period of the Coronavirus Disease? 14 Days?

Resources from Centre for Health Protection suggested that the incubation period of coronavirus is 1 – 14 days, commonly 5 days. However, Zhong Nanshan, editor-in-chief of the Journal of Thoracic Disease, pointed out in February that the incubation period of coronavirus can last for 24 days. Since the outbreak, we have seen cases that its incubation period is longer than 14 days, a case in Hubei even lasted for 27 days. During the incubation period, the patient may not show obvious symptoms or even no symptoms at all, so we have to be extra vigilant.

COVID-19 Prevention FAQ

 

Q1: How Coronavirus is Transmitted?

A: With the development of the epidemic, COVID-19 has spread through more and more channels, including:

  • A recent study published in the scientific journal “Nature Communications” pointed out that the fetus may be infected in the mother’s womb
  • A study by the University of Hong Kong pointed out that in poorly ventilated places, even if people maintain social distancing, the virus still has a chance to spread through the air
  • A research team composed of the universities of Bath, Bristol and Southampton in the United Kingdom suggested that the courier package should be left for 72 hours before being opened, which will help reduce the risk of residual virus infection on the surface of the box.
  • Have close contact with the patient
  • Airborne Transmission
  • Feces transmission (a COVID-19 case in Hong Kong happened in Unit 07, Kang Mei Building, Cheung Hong Estate, Tsing Yi, is suspected of spreading the virus through the exhaust pipe of the dung canal)
  • Aerosol transmission (when droplets are mixed in the air, they form aerosols and are suspended in the air. The infection caused by inhalation mainly occurs in medical procedures such as sputum, tracheal intubation, etc.)
  • Contact with items contaminated by the virus (the new coronavirus can survive on the surface of dead objects for up to 9 days)

Q2: What Activities/Occasions Have a Higher Risk of Infection?

A:  The COVID-19 Working Team and the Infectious Disease Committee of the Texas Medical Association (TMA) recently classified 37 daily activities into 9 levels, with the first level of infection risk being the lowest and the 9th level of infection risk being the highest. Here are a few examples:

  • Level 9 (High Risk): Attend large concerts, go to bars, etc.
  • Level 8 (high risk): dine-in buffet, cinema, fitness center, etc.
  • Level 7 (medium-high risk): attending a wedding/funeral, playing basketball, hugging or shaking hands with friends, etc.
  • Level 6 (moderate risk): Office work for a week, swimming in public swimming pools, visiting elderly relatives and friends, etc.
  • Level 5 (medium risk): shopping in malls, going to the beach, going to other people’s houses and enterprises to eat, etc.
  • Level 4 (medium and low risk): two nights in hotel, one hour in playground, busy city walk, etc.
  • Level 3 (medium to low risk): running, walking, cycling, etc. with others
  • Level 2 (lowest risk): buy takeaway, play tennis, go camping, etc.
  • Level 1 (lowest risk): open mailbox

Q3: What Can I Do to Prevent Coronavirus?

A: In order to prevent coronavirus more effectively, adequate protective measures must be taken:

  • Wear a mask when taking transportation or staying in crowded places
  • Always keep your hands clean, especially before touching your mouth, nose or eyes
  • Properly maintain the drain pipes and regularly (about once a week) pour about half a liter of water into each drain (U-shaped air baffle)
  • After going to the toilet, cover the toilet board before flushing to avoid spreading germs
  • When washing hands, clean your hands with soap and water, rub your hands for at least 20 seconds, rinse with water and dry them with tissue paper
  • If there is no hand-washing facility or when the hands are not obviously dirty, use 70 to 80% alcohol-based handrub to clean your hands
  • Cover your mouth and nose with tissues when sneezing or coughing. Dispose of the used tissues in a covered trash bin, and then thoroughly clean your hands

Q4: Who Are at High Risk of Becoming Severely Ill After Infected?

A: According to a BBC report, pathologists used the data of the first batch of 44,000 cases provided by China to make statistics and found that the following people had a higher proportion of deaths than others:

  • The symptoms of pneumonia in people over 80 are particularly severe, leading to a 15% mortality rate
  • The symptoms of pneumonia in adults will be aggravated by other diseases at the same time, such as heart disease, and the mortality rate is 10%
  • Male smokers: the mortality rate of males is 1.1% higher than that of females, and the most likely is the proportion of smokers. The SARS and MERS studies also share the same view

Return to Quick Links


Q5: What Is the Cure or Treatment for Coronavirus?

A: Although there is already a new drug, Remdesivir, that is considered to be effective in the treatment of coronavirus, clinical trials have to be conducted to confirm its effectiveness. The current treatment is mainly supportive treatment, that is, through gradually soothing the symptoms to regulate the body's immune system until it returns to normal. In other words, as long as the body's resistance is strong enough, not only will there be a greater chance of avoiding the infection, the body will also recover more quickly after being infected.
