New research finds coronavirus symptoms take five days to appear

New research finds that coronavirus symptoms take an average of five days to develop in those who have contracted the disease.

The study was published in the Annals of Internal Medicine by Justin Lessler, an associate professor of epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health,

The research also finds that if an individual has not gotten sick 12 days after making contact with someone who has the virus, it is safe to assume that he or she did not contract it.

The study therefore concludes that the 14-day quarantine rule being broadly instituted in Israel is a wise tactic.
