The incubation period of the coronavirus can be up to 24 days, and not 14 as previously thought, according to a study carried out by 37 researchers from hospitals and medical schools in china, among them the epidemiologist Zhong Nanshan.
The news portal private Caixin reports today of the conclusions of the final draft of the research, in which it is shown that the fever -until now considered to be one of the first symptoms – is expressed in 43.8 % of patients at the time of their first visit to the doctor, even if you ended up developing in the 87.9 % after their admission to hospital.
“The absence of a fever,” explains the text, “it is more frequent among the patients studied) with the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and the respiratory syndrome Middle East (MERS), so that can not be diagnosed in these patients if monitoring to determine the cases focuses primarily on the detection of fever.”
The same thing happens with the tests of the scanner of ct, which only detected symptoms of a possible infection in about half of the cases analyzed, but -points Caixin- “given the growing concern that the analysis of nucleic acid are giving many false negatives, some doctors proposed the inclusion of the scans of tomography to the diagnostic process”.
The exhibition took place on 1.099 patients with infection of coronavirus diagnosed until the 29th of January in 552 hospitals in 31 regions of China, with an average age of 47 years and of whom 41.9% were women.
Among patients -26% had not travelled to Wuhan, the epicentre of the epidemic, or been in contact with people there recently, ” the average period of incubation of the virus was three days and not 5.2, as had been concluded in previous research, although the cases studied indicate any incubation of up to 24 days.
The study also shows that the coronavirus “has a case-fatality rate is relatively smaller than the SARS and MERS“, as also noted in a recent interview with correspondents based in China, the epidemiologist Ian Lipkin, director of the Center for Infection and immunity of the american university of Columbia and in charge of the response to SARS in China in 2002 and 2003.
“There is a mortality of approximately 2 % (of patients infected with coronavirus). SARS had a mortality rate of almost 10 %, while that of the MERS was around 35 %, ” said Lipkin.
“When you compare it to the flu -continues the epidemiologist-, of which there are up to 1,000 million cases a year around the world, with between 350,000 and 650,000 deaths, although it is a mortality rate of 0.1 %, is a much larger number”.
The expert indicates that, in view of the evolving epidemic and the likely total number of cases to be known in the future, the rate of mortality of the novel coronavirus is likely to be less than 2 % calculated as of the date and dared to predict that “it will be much less than 1 %”.
Lipkin stresses the ease of the transmission, so that does not rule out that it would have future outbreaks of this epidemic.
Regarding the latest data, in their report today, the National Commission of Health of China indicates that there are registered 1.016 deaths and 42.638 infections by coronaviruses in mainland China.
The official figures show a slowdown in the number of new cases detected since last February 5.
