Victims Can Spread COVID-19 For Weeks

Some people who get the coronavirus could be contagious for a lot longer than the two-week quarantine period that many countries are using, a new study says.

Researchers looking at cases in China say patients could spread the virus for up to 37 days after they start showing symptoms, according to the study published in the British medical journal The Lancet.

On average, survivors still had the virus in their respiratory system for about 20 days and could presumably continue to spread the disease, researchers found.

    Wow, the infected can continue to spread the virus for 37 days! That is even worse than what we originally thought. The two week quarantine period isn’t containing the virus either. When one person in a quarantined setting gets the virus during the two week time frame… the two week countdown should start over again. It seems indefinite quarantine times are needed to contain it… which are literally impossible.

      You are correct AGAIN! 🙂 I am glad to see that you get the scope of what is happening.

      That is why Dr. FAUCI and other epidemiologists are quietly talking about a STRICT two (2) month quarantine for everyone. No flights, no school, no work (other than essential stuff like health care and food delivery) nothing for two months. That would allow us to reset the clock, back to a time when testing and contact tracing would have worked at snuffing out the virus. Our politicians and health officials have failed us. When this is all said and done — they should hang.
