Understanding The Significance Of Virtual Support During Global Pandemic In Young Adults Diagnosed With Hepatitis C, Veronika Arkhipova

Hepatitis C is a viral infection that attacks the liver and leads to inflammation.

A Review Of Quarantine Period In Relation To Incubation Period Of Sars-Cov-2, Satya Rashmit Durugu, Hammad Tanzeem, Divya Menghani, Zahid Imran, Priya Krishnan

The University of Louisville Journal of Respiratory Infections

Introduction: The period, from exposure to a potential pathogen to the manifestation of symptoms i.e. incubation period, is time the virus spends replicating in the host. An estimation of this period and subsequent quarantine of the host can limit potential spread, particularly in asymptomatic carriers. Effective contact tracing, length of self-quarantine, repeat testing and understanding of disease transmission are all contingent on a true estimation of this incubation period.
