The process of viral shedding and its relevance to effective screening for infectious disease.
Viral Shedding before and after symptom onset

The process of viral shedding and its relevance to effective screening for infectious disease.

The research paper, "Temporal dynamics in viral shedding and transmissibility of COVID-19", presents the process of viral shedding across the presymptomatic and symptomatic phases. The researchers provide significant insight into…

Research article from Science Magazine reinforces the priority of identifying individuals while presymptomatic with an influenza-like illness, including COVID-19

“Transmission occurring rapidly and before symptoms, as we have found, implies that the epidemic is highly unlikely to be contained solely by isolating symptomatic individuals.”

Evidence suggest 40+% of COVID cases can be traced to a presymptomatic individual, with high rates of transmission occurring two to three days prior to symptom onset.

The work by Xi He, et al appearing in the research paper titled "Temporal dynamics in viral shedding and transmissibility of COVID-19", which appeared in Nature Medicine (published April 15,…
