Chinese health authorities: Coronavirus is contagious during incubation period
Chinese physicians stated that the potential of human-to-human transmission of the virus has been increased. The novel coronavirus is contagious even during the incubation period when the person doesn’t feel sick, stated the spokespeople of the National Health Commission of China at a press conference in Beijing. They added that some of the infected people can spread the virus before the symptoms show. For this reason, it is difficult to maintain the quarantine measures.
HE TSINGHUA, SENIOR INSPECTOR, CHINESE CENTER FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION:
- Today the prevention and control measures of the epidemic are at a critical condition. It is necessary to fully activate the mobilization opportunities at the local level. We put all of our efforts into it. The stable group control and prevention can ensure the effective implementation of countermeasures against proliferation.
