China has warned that the incubation period for the emerging coronavirus may reach about a month, not 14 days as previously said, which could complicate efforts to contain the spread of the epidemic.
The Chinese authorities reported that a man in the Chinese province of Hubei was infected with the Coruna virus, but symptoms did not appear until after 27 days, which means that the incubation period of the virus may be much longer than the presumed period of 14 days.
She added that the 70-year-old man caught the infection when he visited his injured sister in Hubei.
The possibility that the virus will spread from a person with the disease to others after recovery remains an additional concern for those around the world.
The horror of the virus multiplies with the discovery that it can be transmitted from the person without the symptoms.
