Top 5: things to know about the main driver of spread

  • 80% of people infected with novel Coronavirus have no symptoms (8 out of 10 will ultimately go on to have some symptom – PRE-SYMPTOMATIC)
  • 2 to 14 days – the time between exposure and onset in symptoms.
  • 48 Hours after exposure – you are most likely to spread the nCoV-2.
  • Symptoms first appear 4 or 5 days after exposure/infection.
  • People without symptoms CAN spread the virus  the same as people with symptoms, no matter the severity.

Asymptomatic spread is the wildcard!
