Researchers state Coronavirus has a 14-day incubation period with symptoms showing an average of 5 days after infection

In a non-peer reviewed paper published to the Annals of Internal Medicine today, public health researchers estimate that the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 that has spurred the global COVID-19 outbreak has an approximate incubation period of 14 days with infected people showing symptoms on average 5.2 days after infection.  Per this preliminary analysis, the researchers estimate that 98% of patients who will show common symptoms such as dry cough and fever will do so within 10.5 days.  

While this early stage analysis relies on key assumptions, the findings generally support the current 14-day quarantine period being presumptively used by the United States and other countries.  

These findings are also consistent with the suggested use of EZC Pak twice a day for up to 14 days while traveling or if in contact with someone who is sick.  If symptoms develop, increase to taking EZC Pak as directed on the box.

As a follow up comment to this:

To put this in context with a more familiar viral illness, influenza (the flu) has an incubation period of 1-4 days with an average of 2 days of incubation before showing symptoms.

Sincerely,

Sarath
