“In the previous strain of coronavirus, the infection lasted 7-12 days,” said Teacher of Azerbaijan Medical University, surgeon Rauf Gasimov, APA reports.
He noted that in new strains, this period extended: “Infection with the British strain and other recently discovered strains lasts up to 28 days. In many patients infected with the new strain, it is positive when the test is taken in 24-28 days. I would recommend that these people do not come into contact with anyone for 28 days. In other words, they can infect others.”
