COVID-19 is a contagious disease caused by a newly discovered type of corona virus. This virus is a new virus and an unknown disease prior to the outbreak in Wuhan, China, in December 2019..
The incubation period may vary between patients, i.e. 2-14 days after exposure to the virus based on the incubation period indicated previously for the MERS virus. An incubation period of 24 days has been observed in recent studies. The WHO says the long incubation period could reflect a double exposure to the Coronavirus. According to a recent report, it is possible that a person infected with Covid-19 could be contagious before showing significant symptoms.
Person-to-person transmission is thought to occur via droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes, similar to how influenza and other respiratory pathogens can be inhaled into the lungs. Covid-19 transmission can also occur by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then the person touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their own eyes.
