Xinhua News Agency, Hangzhou, January 26th, reporters learned from Sheng Jifang, director of the Department of Infectious Diseases of Zhejiang University First Hospital, deputy director of the State Key Laboratory of Infectious Diseases Diagnosis and Treatment, and member of the pneumonia expert group for the diagnosis and treatment of new coronavirus infection in Zhejiang Province. Case studies of pneumonia associated with a new coronavirus infection have been contagious when there were no typical symptoms during the incubation period.

'We encountered a patient who came to Hangzhou from Wuhan to attend a conference. When he arrived in Hangzhou, he did not have any symptoms. He did not have the typical symptoms of cough and fever. But it didn't take long before several colleagues he had contacted were infected Symptoms appeared one after another. But at this time, he still did not have the disease himself. After returning to Wuhan at the end of the meeting, he did not get the disease after another two days. 'Sheng Jifang introduced.

Sheng Jifang said that after different people are infected with the new coronavirus, the course of disease development and clinical symptoms may be very different. It is possible that this person developed symptoms immediately after infection, while another person had no obvious symptoms during the incubation period after infection. Therefore, it is difficult for ordinary citizens to identify.

According to the 'Pneumonitis Prevention and Control Plan for New Coronavirus Infection (Second Edition)' released by the National Health and Health Committee on the evening of the 22nd, the longest incubation period of the disease is about 14 days based on the current knowledge of pneumonitis infected by the new Coronavirus.

'This case tells everyone that even during the incubation period, when there are no typical symptoms, it is already contagious.' Sheng Jifang said. 'If you come back from Wuhan or have contact with the epidemic source, you should do your own quarantine. Do not contact others during the quarantine, and do not spread the virus to family, colleagues and friends. This is very important.'

Sheng Jifang hopes that those who have come out of Wuhan but have not yet reached 14 days should be isolated by themselves, or those who have symptoms should go to the hospital for screening in time for effective treatment.
