New study on COVID-19 estimates 5.1 days for incubation period | Science Daily

A new analysis and study done on COVID-19 shows that 97.5% have a 5.1 day incubation period for the virus. This means that under the current quarantine period of 14 days, only 101 out of 10,000 people would show symptoms after the quarantine period. Cases from numerous countries were used, but many of those outside of China had traveled to Wuhan within the past couple weeks. This better understanding of the incubation period will allow officials and experts to determine proper social distancing and quarantine measures, as well as calculate the possible time rate of the spread of the virus. The coronaviruses normally give the average person the common cold with an incubation period of three days.
