2/2 Wuhan coronavirus. Dr Henry Miller

One confounding factor in preventing the spread of infection is that the incubation period—the time from exposure to the onset of symptoms—can be long, believed to be up to about two weeks. That means that contacts of active cases could travel long distances before they manifest symptoms. Therefore, more cases are expected.

Dr Henry Miller, Pacific Research Institute:  The bottom line is that, for the time being, we need to maintain surveillance, practice good “social engineering” and isolation techniques, provide appropriate supportive care for infected patients, and create the infrastructure for rapid vaccine development in the future.
